Work Shadowing at Hanze UAS Groningen

A delegation representing mostly the heads of degree programmes at TAMK University of Applied Sciences is on a visit to Hanzehogeschool Groningen, Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen, Netherlands.

The purpose of the trip is to benchmark Hanze University and to develop closer links. There is already some staff and student exchanges between the institutions but there is also a strong will for further development of mobility and project cooperation. During the first day of the visit TAMK delegation got an introduction to the university and it's international policy. Also the applied research activities, the system of accreditation of prior learning and the educational development and assessment were part of the programme.

During the second day of the visit the delegation split up into two groups. One group visiting the institute of technology, the other group visiting Akademie Minerva and Akademia voor Popkultuur. Reports on these trips are published soon in this blog.
