We invest in sustainable relationships within the world of professional practice, which involves combining education, research and the professional world. Co-creation and co-production are key. Our alumni are our natural partners in professional practice. Together, we want to enhance the potential for innovation and development in the local region and further afield.


Internationalisation is an important aspect of education and research at HU. Innovation in professional practice can only take place in an international context by using the knowledge that is available – wherever in the world it may be. HU welcomes academic and professional partners from abroad to help us achieve our shared internationalisation goals. International cooperation comes in many different forms: from collaborative research projects and student and staff exchanges, to joint study programmes, international exchanges through e-learning and intensive courses.


In the diverse society of the Netherlands and the Utrecht region, it is only natural we actively teach our students intercultural skills. This is enhanced by the fact that students from all over the world take classes alongside Dutch students, so our international programmes provide a culturally diverse learning environment in and of themselves. About 100 nationalities are currently represented in our student population. HU also attracts foreign teaching staff to enhance the global dimension of our international programmes.
