The Faculty of Social Work and Health is member of the 1998 founded international Social Work Network (SocNet 98), a union of faculties of Social Work, Social Services and Social Education at European universities (overview of the Network Partners).

Every year students and representatives of the individual universities meet at the International Week, to work together and discuss issues of social work, to discuss and exchange ideas and experiences. The International Week (International University Week - IUW) takes place in April / May and is held simultaneously at least four locations.

IUW 2017 took place from 1st till 6th of May in: Groningen, Helsinki, Leuven and Linz.

The IUW offers students the ideal framework to discuss and exchange ideas on Social Work or Social Education in the European context on an international level. The common language during IUW is English.

In 2016, our University of Applied Sciences in Emden has been one of the three venues for IUW.
