International Affairs Committee

Once a month the committee meets to discuss strategic internationalisation topics at the university, to approve the granting of funds for international trips and projects by university members, and to make recommendations to the university management, departments and senate. In coordination with the departments and university management, the committee scrutinises and helps determine the medium and long-term steps that need to be taken to implement the internationalisation strategy.

The senate committee for international affairs is made up of elected professors, lecturers and employees in the departments, the President’s appointee for internationalisation (post currently vacant), a student representative, and the representatives of the International Office. Beyond this, guests are also welcome.


The Senate Commission for International Affairs is composed of elected professors, lecturers and staff of the faculties, the Rectorate representative for Internationalisation (currently vacant), a student representative and representatives of the International Office. Guests are also welcome.
