HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht is rooted in the Utrecht region. Here, we work closely with large and small companies, other knowledge institutions, partners in the education chain and government bodies. We invest in sustainable relationships with the world of professional practice which involve bringing together education, research and the world of professional work. Co-creation and coproduction are keywords here. Our alumni are our natural partners in professional practice. Together we want to enhance the potential for innovation and development in the region.  

Internationalization is another important aspect of education and research at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. Innovation in professional practice can only take place in an international context, by making use of the knowledge available wherever in the world it may be. HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht welcomes academic and professional partners from abroad to help us achieve our shared internationalization 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.
