News about education in the Netherlands RSS

Elsevier Magazine publishes a ranking of Dutch universities of applied sciences and research universities every year. The score of each university is heavily based on the results of the annual National Student Questionnaire (Nationale Studenten Enquete, or NSE).


Our society is based on electronic technologies. Medical robots help to diagnose and cure diseases. Sensor systems automatise production. Web applications enable communication from anywhere in the world. That is why engineers are on the edge of social progress and results of their work directly affect our lives.


Gaining new knowledge is an important part of studying, but only learning theory is not enough to prepare for a career.

That is why Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences combines lectures with project weeks, internships, and graduation assignments.
