Interested in cooperating with Clio?

Some background information

Clio, founded in 1988, is the Study Association for all students of International Relations and International Organization (IRIO). This English-taught programme approaches issues in the field of International Relations from a historical, political, economic and legal perspective, with additional training in a modern foreign language. The Bachelor's degree in International Relations and International Organization is a quota study (numerus fixus), meaning that only a limited number of students are accepted. Clio also represents the students that do a Master's in IR. They can decide to explore different areas of International Relations or specialize in for example International Security or European Politics in a Global Perspective. With over 1000 members, Clio is the biggest study association of a Dutch Faculty of Arts and one of the biggest study associations in Groningen. 

What can Clio do for your company?

Clio offers various opportunities to promote your company to IRIO students, such as online advertisements on our website or Facebook or promotion during an event. These opportunities often include a small and negotiable fee. This money goes directly to Clio and its committees to make sure all kinds of events are organized for IRIO students. Please contact our Commissioner Corporate Relations Wyona van de Poel via if you want to cooperate with Clio. For more information, you can also check out the cooperation possibilities below!
