Bachelor’s programmes

NHTV Breda University of Applied SciencesFor international students who wish to pursue an undergraduate course that is academically oriented, NHTV offers two Bachelor’s programmes. International Leisure Studies and the Bachelor of Sciences Tourism programmes are both taught entirely in English. These programmes have a 3 year duration and provide graduates with a Bachelor of Sciences (BSc) degree which can grant access to a wide variety of Master’s programmes.

International Leisure Studies combines disciplines in the Business Administration field, such as marketing, economics, and organisation, with sociology and psychology. Students taking this course will learn to research and implement new strategies and business models in the leisure industry.

The Bachelor of Sciences Tourism study is a joint course, offered in cooperation with Wageningen University and Research Centre. Its key modules include tourism and its connection to economic development and climatic conditions in target countries. Students spend the last year of this programme at Wageningen University and are then able to choose a minor based on their interests.

The application deadline for both programmes is May 1st.
