What we do

At The Hague University of Applied Sciences we want all our students to successfully enter the local and global labour markets as global citizens who can make a meaningful contribution to today’s and tomorrow’s interconnected societies. We do this by offering international and intercultural perspectives in our programmes, encouraging personal growth and nurturing an inclusive campus culture. Team Strategy connects relevant, external development in global citizenship, the sustainable development goals and internationalisation to the THUAS practice and offers support to teaching and support staff, degree programmes and faculties in:

  • Clear and smooth processes for partnerships and student exchanges;
  • Developing and maintaining University-wide Strategic Partnerships which facilitate staff and students to enhance their international experiences;
  • Shaping global citizenship and internationalisation within curricula: from tools and good practices to curriculum design;
  • Stimulating an international campus culture for all students;

Strategic Partnerships

One of the key components of the THUAS Internationalisation Compass is to establish and maintain meaningful, broad and deep international partnerships with a number of leading universities (both applied and research universities) as well as with alumni, private companies, research institutes, government institutes, NGO’s and public service organisations. 

We believe that strategic university partnerships can impact THUAS in all areas of university life ‐ deepening and strengthening the quality of its teaching, learning and research cooperation. In doing so THUAS provides an international knowledge platform for students and scholars to engage in a wide range of activities with international partner institutions.
