2018, the “Deutschlandjahr” at Hasselt University!

Hasselt University has declared 2018 as the “Deutschlandjahr” at the university. Together with the city of Hasselt and the province of Limburg, Hasselt University puts Germany in the spotlight for the whole year.

At the request of the German Embassy, our neighbour Germany will be in the spotlight this year. This entails the organisation of academic and cultural activities. In this way, the university, the city and the province will develop and deepen existing academic, economic and cultural ties with Germany. The organisation of the “Deutschlandjahr” fits in the vision of Hasselt University on international cooperation. The cooperation of Germany will be strengthened.

Every month activities will be organized. The “Deutschlandjahr” will end with a grand event, where the ties between Hasselt University and the “Fachhochschules” in Germany will be renewed.
