Environmental impact

Our students get the opportunity to enrich their study program with an international experience. They can travel the world for an internship, an exchange or a study trip. We make a donation to Justdiggit (per travelling student and visiting lecturers) to compensate the environmental impact of these trips. Justdiggit is on a mission to cool down the planet within ten years by regreening degraded land in Africa and bringing back vegetation.
