Ceren Genc

My name is Ceren Genç. I'm Turkish and I am currently the Team Leader for International Student Admissions at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. I have over 15 years of experience in international higher education, in various positions. I have served the Admission and Recognition Expert Community as Chair for the last two years, and I am now standing for a second term.

I strongly believe in the power of the EAIE, as a member-driven organisation, to provide an excellent platform for sharing ideas, know-how, innovation and solutions within our field. Admissions and recognition specialists benefit greatly from belonging to this international community since our daily work relies on up-to-date knowledge and insights into higher education systems around the world. My leadership style is based on spreading trust. I love building bridges and my greatest professional satisfaction comes from connecting people and creating new opportunities for sharing successes and challenges. You may say I’m a dreamer, but at the same time I insist on data-driven analysis and I always strive to create real impact and quality. The Expert Communities are the heart of the EAIE, and it would be an honour to serve as Admission and Recognition Chair for another two years.
