Collaboration possibilities

Education in collaboration with partners, such as civil society organisations and companies, is growing. The University of Utrecht wants each student to have the possibility to receive transdisciplinary education during their studies.

This creates a win-win situation. Civil society organisations and companies receive help from students. At the same time, students gain valuable experience and the opportunity to create impact during their studies.

Different types of cooperation are possible, from one-off guest lectures and/or hackatons to long-term cooperation and constructions in which students from University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and the University of Utrecht work together. Challenges can also be used within graduation projects or within a PhD framework.

Specific challenges can be submitted to existing courses. Using the 'U-Collaborate in Education' tool, you can see courses that are looking for challenges and the conditions that are attached to it. Do you have a challenge but does not fit into one of the courses? It is possible to submit your challenge as an 'open challenge'.

Below are examples of possible collaboration types. Want to know more? Don't hesitate to contact us to discuss possibilities.
