IRP speciality is UT-wide inter-institutional partnerships, and advice on the deployment and optimization of governance of EU and non-EU agreement processes. We monitor developments in credit - and degree mobility opportunities and explore scholarship programmes for (non) degree seekers (Ba/Ma/PhD) and staff. Our current portfolio extends beyond our current agreements with our UT-wide partner institutions well into Erasmus+ programme, our contribution to ECIUU university on mobility aspects, as well as policy advise on all matters of internationalization, and calamity expert advise regarding health, safety and security of our students world wide.
Internationalization, international collaboration and partnerships are key priorities for the University of Twente, which requires best practices and the available knowledge and expertise to be shared within and outside the university. Our UT country coordinator disseminates knowledge on Mexico, and on international strategic partner universities (ISP). The country coordinators create synergies within the UT and strategic value in our collaboration with international partners.
