Code of integrity 

Hanze UAS trains professionals and develops applicable and practice oriented knowledge for the benefit of companies and institutions in the north of the Netherlands and beyond. In places where people work together, questions and tensions may arise about ethical issues. Our Code of Integrity describes guidelines for desired behaviour. The code applies to all staff members of Hanze UAS. We expect everyone, including students, to act in the spirit of the code. This code wants to offer a guideline to desired behaviour and any discussions about desired behaviour, so that our core values of responsibility, respect and active tolerance can be expressed. The Code of Integrity is only available in Dutch, you can find it here.

Code of Conduct for International Students in Higher Education in The Netherlands 

Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen observes the Code of Conduct for international students in The Netherlands. This Code sets out standards for Dutch higher education institutions in their dealings with international students. By signing the Code of Conduct, the institutions offer international students a guarantee of the quality of their programmes, student recruitment, selection and counselling procedures. Only institutions that have signed the Code are allowed to recruit international students. This Code of Conduct is an initiative of the joint Dutch educational institutions. 
If a student believes that Hanze UAS is remiss in fulfilling its obligations under the code, they can file a complaint with the Complaints and Disputes Office (Bureau Klachten en Geschillen) of Hanze UAS. 
Students from outside the EU who want to follow a degree programme at an higher education institution that has not signed the Code of Conduct will not be able to obtain visas. For more information visit the website of the National Commission
