Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2021-2027
With the award of Erasmus Charter for Higher Education (ECHE) for the period 2021 - 2027, HZ has access to the new Erasmus+ programme for higher education institutions. This means that HZ can apply for Erasmus+ budgets from the European Commission (EC) and award grants to HZ students for study or work placement. There is also a budget for faculty and staff who go to a partner institution for knowledge exchange. By signing the ECHE, HZ guarantees to comply with the general quality requirements set by the EC for cooperation and mobility within Erasmus+.
In this new ECHE, the EC pays much attention to a number of new themes: digitalisation, sustainability and inclusion.
All programmes offered by the HZ University of Applied Sciences (HZ) use a numerical 10-point grading scale in accordance with the Dutch grading system for higher education. We have set up a special page where you can find out the value of your grades.
