This exchange program is a 30 ECTS English taught course at Hanze University Groningen. It offers the opportunity to shape and apply your education around the central project Human Rights in Practice (10 ECTS) in which you can pursue your personal interests: explore those issues and cases that genuinely inspire you! All of this can be done individually or in small groups together with fellow students.

The course is designed in accordance with the many different issues and areas in which Human Rights matters are currently at stake. Therefore you will learn to recognize how Human Rights are closely connected to professional practices such as Social Work, International Law, Economics as well as the (para) medical professions.

Main Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Discuss, explore and question the concept of 'human rights';
