Thomas More Hogeschool is a Hogeschool (University of Applied Sciences) located in the centre of the multicultural city of Rotterdam, and its mission statement is to educate skilled teachers who never give up, who are well trained in urban education, and who are conscious of their world citizenship. Broadening horizons, expanding knowledge about other forms of education, and becoming aware of different cultures and customs are essential elements to acquire this. Students and staff are therefore stimulated to do research abroad and to share their knowledge on educational systems in the Netherlands with their international counterparts. Thomas More Hogeschool therefore highly values the importance of offering both students and staff members the opportunity to discover how education is organised abroad and to gain inspiration from these international experiences.
Sharing succesful forms of education will contribute to the quality of education in general and will have a strong influence on social and economic developments worldwide. We strongly feel that future teachers should contribute to this global process.
Thomas More Hogeschool is constantly developing, also internationally. It aims at creating a global network through which students and staff will be able to gain knowledge about international educational programmes and resources. We enable our students to study abroad by sharing teaching expertise with other higher educational institutes and/or by joining their research activities. The international programme will focus on our strongest point: our close connection with the education field in Rotterdam. We will therefore provide programmes at bilingual schools in an urban environment or in the region of Rotterdam.
Strategic partnerships will enable and intensify the synergy between exchange, research and development on the one hand and international courses and programmes on the other hand, so that they will be regarded as a model for future collaboration. It is our aim to organise this in close connection with the international higher educational institutes, so that we can focus on the needs and goals of our foreign students.
