At HKU, we understand the importance of connecting our students to the professional field during their studies. That’s why we organise various projects every year that help students to gain practical experience. Apart from just being enjoyable, these projects are also a great preparation for the future.

Every school has its own projects. Students of Art and Economics, for example, have their Imagining Tomorrow, where they think about innovative solutions for societal challenges. They do this for a company or organisation from the professional field, such as the Red Cross Society or the Ministry of Justice and Security.

Our students also present their works to the world through our projects. Examples are the Dutch Design Week or the Dutch Film Festival. Through these projects, students can already get a glimpse of the working life after their graduation. As well as an opportunity to show potential employers what they can!
