Partner Universities

HZ has an extensive international network and excellent contacts with the business world and other universities. There are some fifty bilateral agreements with European institutes of higher education within the framework of the Erasmus-Socrates and Leonardo programmes of the European Commission.

These enable us to organise one-semester exchange study programmes or work placements for dozens of students and lecturers. In addition, we have many partnerships with institutes all over the world. 

One semester study at a partner university
We believe in international exchange programmes, so we offer you the opportunity to study for one semester at one of our many partner  universities. This dedication to helping you experience as many cultures and languages as possible, will make your HZ diploma a valuable  passport for the future.

One semester internship abroad
You can do your internship abroad and participate in international projects. HZ has internship opportunities in many different countries and will assist you with the application procedure.

Scholarships
Before you decide to go abroad during your studies at HZ, it is very important that you make a clear estimate not only for yourself, but also for those who will possibly co-finance it. Studies abroad are often subsidised, so you can apply for a mobility scholarship.
