The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS) has exchange agreements with a large number of ERASMUS + partners and non-Erasmus+ partners all over the world. An exchange at THUAS is a truly international experience. We welcome more than 500 exchange students of around 50 nationalities every academic year.
Our exchange students gain a rich cultural experience by working alongside the large number of Dutch and international full-time students on English-language bachelor degree programmes. Our high-quality programmes encourage students to explore each other’s cultures to become open-minded and independent thinkers – qualities which are essential in the present day labour market. Working in a multicultural and cosmopolitan environment becomes second nature to our students.
The Hague University of Applied Sciences has been awarded the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the period 2021-2027, allowing us to participate in the Erasmus + programme. Please see both our Charter as well as our current Erasmus Policy Statement.
