Cooperation beyond exchange

As a University of Applied Sciences (UAS), Saxion blends education with research and theory with practice. This results in applied research. Quality of research helps us to prepare students for a successful future in a global society. We aim to strengthen the international component of our applied research by carrying out projects with international partners, which also benefit the regional economy and society.

Saxion is ready and ambitious to take student and/or teacher exchange-focussed relations to the next level. If you are as ambitious as we are, we would like to work together with you to achieve the goals we share. Our core priorities are:

  1. From co-operation to co-creation: To take our partnerships to the next level, we want to co-operate with you in a (greater) variety of ways. Projects add to the body of expertise in social, cultural and professional trends and conditions in other countries.
  2. Working together in (funded) projects: By working together and combining our knowledge, we can solve societal and business-related issues in our home region. Saxion collaborates in various ways with companies and (governmental) institutions in our home region. We build a bridge between education and the professional world. If you also have strong relationships in your home region or it is your desire to build such a network, we can work together in many ways.
  3. Strengthen our UAS profile: As a UAS, we educate students in professional skills and academic knowledge. Skills are developed through case studies, internships and a final thesis in which academic knowledge is used to contribute to companies’ innovation. We have broad experience in sharing this knowledge of operating as a UAS with other universities. We would be very pleased to show you the benefits of being a UAS and assist you if you wish to take steps towards becoming a UAS.

The International Project Desk (within the International Office) brings initiatives together, sets up new ways of co-operation and fundraising and co-ordinates the exchange of experts in close ‘consultation’ with the schools. The Desk combines experience in international projects, project management, innovative expertise and thorough knowledge of Saxion and its home region. The current focus for new projects is on extending co-operation with a focus on UAS-related topics.
