Dutch universities support Turkish academics and students

20 July 2016

Our first concerns are with the students and staff affected by the political situation in Turkey. The association of universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) supports the statement of the EUA, in which European universities condemn the actions directed at Turkish universities and its staff. International academic values and the principles of academic freedom prevail for the VSNU. Science is eminently international. Academics and students should be able to move freely. The Dutch universities are ready to answer questions and concerns individual Turkish scientists and students in the Netherlands might have. The VSNU is following developments closely and maintains contact with relevant institutions and partners such as EP-Nuffic and the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education.

Students and staff of the University of Groningen can contact the International Student Desk and the HR Information Desk.
