Hanze UAS and the Erasmus+ Programme

Studenten buiten op blokken voor Van OlstBorg 2022

Hanze UAS (NL GRONING03) has participated in the Erasmus Programme since 1989. Over the years, the Erasmus Programme has been of enormous importance for our internationalisation process. Hanze UAS participates in both KA131 projects (HE student and staff mobility with programme countries) and KA171 projects (HE student and staff mobility between programme and partner countries). Hanze UAS also coordinates and participates in numerous KA2 projects. In December 2020 Hanze UAS was awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027. You can find the ECHE and the ECHE policy statement in the attachment.

Inter-Institutional Agreements

Hanze UAS has Inter-Institutional Agreements with a large number of partner institutions abroad, both within the framework of the Erasmus+ programme and outside the Erasmus+ programme. These agreements regulate the exchange of students and staff on the basis of reciprocity. The administration of the agreements is done by Team International Mobility, which is also responsible for the administration of the Erasmus+ grants. Collaboration agreements with partner institutions require the signature of the Chairman of the Executive Board. Erasmus+ Inter-Institutional Agreements are signed by the Erasmus Institutional Coordinator, on behalf of the Executive Board. 

If you are interested in undertaking an exchange to an EU country and would like more information about Erasmus+ scholarships, please contact Team International Mobility at [email protected] (students)or [email protected] (faculty and staff Hanze).

ECTS Course Catalogue

The European Credit Transfer (and Accumulation) System (ECTS) is a coherent system of instruments. ECTS was developed to increase the transparency of study programmes and units of study, thus promoting the quality of higher education and international mobility. The use of ECTS is a prerequisite for participation in the Erasmus+ programme. Find more information about Hanze UAS and ECTS here.

ECTS Grading Tables

ECTS Grading Tables provide international students, colleagues, partner institutions, future employers and work placement providers insight into the grading culture of a programme/school/institution. Find more information about grading tables and an overview of grading tables of specific Hanze Schools here 


Hanze UAS fully complies with the Erasmus principles concerning the recognition of credits obtained during a study period or work placement abroad.

Learning Agreement 

Well before the student's departure, a Learning Agreement is drawn up, which details the study programme that the student will undertake at the partner institution abroad or, in the case of a work placement, describes the assignment/tasks that a student is expected to carry out during his/her time with the host company/organisation.

Transcript of Records 

After completion of the study period abroad, Hanze UAS receives the student's Transcript of Records from the host institution. The credits awarded by the partner institution will be registered by Hanze UAS, provided the credits were obtained for the study programme detailed in the Learning Agreement. In the case of a work placement with a company/organisation abroad, the appropriate number of credits will be awarded to the student, as soon as he/she has completed all the assignments attached to the work placement. In case a student is of the opinion that some or all of the credits obtained abroad have unjustly not been recognised, he/she can appeal to the Student Appeals Board.

Incoming Erasmus exchange students will receive a Transcript of Records from the school that has hosted them for their study abroad period. Hanze UAS will do its utmost to make the Transcript of Records available within the agreed period of 5 weeks after completion of the semester during which the student was our guest.
