The main goal of our organization is preparing students for the business world. Learning theory is not enough on its own to get the best jobs. In order to get the most out of a study, the theory has to be turned into practice as well.

By giving our members this experience, we want to give them a head start in the race to the top. Helping our organization equals business experience and hard work. It is this experience that we want to bring to our members, all while they are studying.


GetConnected brings out the success in people. We guarantee students success in three different skills: Social development, professional development, and networking.

It is not only about building friendships; it is also about helping people that need our help. By doing something extra next to the studies, we can give something back to other students. This organization encourages all of our members to help students pass their exams, enjoy school, and help with all of the other activities others could need help with.

Additionally, we encourage professional growth. Our members are busy with budgeting, marketing, and events while growing in teamwork. We ensure professional experience in a safe environment, to prepare for the dangerous business world.

Our Journey

GetConnected started as a group of students that wanted to connect international students. It quickly shifted focus to events that contribute to professional success. As more events were successfully organised, the organisation became an official study association.

The organisation is financially supported by the Utrecht University of applied sciences to finance its activities. With this capital, the organisation is growing in size and value for the university, the students, and the city of Utrecht.

With the activities that GetConnected is performing, the organisation has been able to help international, and internationally orientated students to build on their personal and professional success while helping them to reach their goals.
