It is our goal to educate our students to become Global citizens. This means that our students are not only equipped to act internationally, but also local, regional and national, being able to understand and appreciate others perspectives and added knowledge is a key quality. In order to achieve this, we have made a comprehensive internationalisation plan – contributing to the quality of our students, staff and faculty and focus on the Learning Outcomes of Internationalisation. Internationalisation is not a goal by itself, it facilitates our intercultural  dimension in our way of teaching, in the research and our services.

This is visualized in our Compass for Internationalisation, giving direction to our vision.


All faculties have an international coordinator who can be reached via Team GC&I ( International coordinators implement the international policy in their faculties. They advice amongst others, on the exchange processes and allocation of places. They play a vital role when it comes to student and/or staff exchange.
