VeSte is an active member of ISO (Dutch: Interstedelijk Studenten Overleg, English: National Student Consultation). ISO is a national umbrella organization for universities and applied universities in the Netherlands. The vision of ISO is that higher education offers students the opportunity to develop themselves as individuals. Equally important is the transfer of knowledge and skills that contribute to the advancement of the society and the economy. For VeSte, ISO is an important partner since it offers a link with the national politics and it opens lines with other Student Councils throughout the land. Within VeSte the Commissioner National is responsible for the contacts with ISO.
