Under the umbrella of internationalization platform UniTe, there are two new world associations: the Romanian Student Association and the African Student Association. ‘This could be a bridge to share our culture with the entire UT community.’
With the ongoing internationalization of the university it is logical for UniTe, the umbrella organization of international associations, to take a more advisory role towards the UT. 'We want the voice of the international student to be heard,’ says Nynke Tilkema, chairman and ATLAS student.
This year’s Henk Zijm Award went to Yonas Negash, the president of UniTe. This annual award is given to a UT student or organization that makes a special contribution to the internationalization of the university.
On the 6th of May the ‘open podium 2014 - the international edition’ will take place at the UT campus. This event, which will feature many different performances including theatre, dancing or choir, is organized by Apollo in partnership with UT’s platform for internationalization UniTe. UT Nieuws spoke to the representatives of the two organizing associations, Ajay Kumar from UniTe and Jord Bolhaar from Apollo.
