Hanze UAS and the Erasmus+ Programme
Hanze UAS (NL GRONING 03) 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 KA103 projects (HE student and staff mobility with programme countries) and KA107 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 the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027.
You can find the ECHE and the ECHE policy statement here.
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.
ECTS Course Catalogue
In 2019 Hanze UAS launched its web-based, bilingual ECTS Course Catalogue. Incoming exchange students can also find information about the study programmes at Hanze UAS on a special webpage with an overview of programmes which are open to exchange students.
Hanze UAS fully complies with the Erasmus principles concerning the recognition of credits obtained during a study period or work placement abroad.
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.
