The goal of the team Internationalisation is to stimulate internationalisation and to safeguard the inclusion of international students in policy plans and initiatives set out by the UT. The team Internationalisation supports the SU portfolio holder Communication, Internationalisation and Wellbeing. We aim to facilitate a safe, inspiring and nurturing environment for both Dutch and international students to feel at home, so they can flourish and make the best out of their time at the UT. The World Associations play a vital role in creating this community for our (international) students.

This is why we have Maaike van der Horst as our World Sector Officer. She is here to assist the boards of the World Associations at UT by giving advice on their policy plans, budget plans and by helping out with practical issues. Examples are opening a Dutch bank account, registering at the KvK, or communicating with Dutch governmental or commercial agencies. If you feel like Maaike can help your World Association out in any way, please shoot her an email at m.vanderhorst@utwente.nl. She looks forward to helping you out and make the international community at UT even healthier, happier and stronger.
