The University of Groningen is a nearly 400-year-old international research university which offers excellent conditions for students and staff who have a passion for science and wish to work at the frontiers of knowledge. The University is renowned for its excellent teaching and research in a wide range of academic disciplines.
The University of Groningen participates since 1999 in the Network on Humanitarian Action (NOHA) and provides a 90 ECTS Master Programme on International Humanitarian Action. The Master programme is a three semester interuniversity, multidisciplinary programme that provides high quality academic education and professional competencies for persons working or intending to work in the area of international humanitarian action.
In addition, NOHA Groningen includes several research projects that are related to international humanitarian action. The projects share a focus on humanitarian issues, but differ in their disciplinary focus, research questions, and methodological approaches, thereby contributing to the multidisciplinary nature of NOHA Groningen. The projects are located at the various faculties and departments of the University but share an overall interest in matters of humanitarian action and organization.
