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 following education 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 are offering international students a guarantee of the quality of their programmes, student recruitment, selection and counselling procedures. Only institutions that have signed up to the Code are allowed to recruit international students. This Code of Conduct is an initiative of the Dutch institutions.

The information provided by the educational institutions to international students on the basis of the Code of Conduct must be in English, in the language used for the study programme, or in the native language of the international student. The educational institution must make clear what services it provides to international students, such as help with obtaining a visa and a residence permit, housing, introduction sessions and student counselling. In their information materials, educational institutions must specify clearly what the associated costs for the services are.

If a student believes that Hanze UAS is remiss in discharging 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 see the website of the National Commission.


Code of Integrity of Hanze UAS

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.
