Detailed info

Specialisation

Avans also has courses for Erasmus exchange students and English language foundation programme. Courses include elements of theory and practice to ensure students are prepared for a working environment upon graduation.

History

The merging of Hogeschool Brabant and Hogeschool ‘s-Hertogenbosch gave birth to Avans University of Applied Sciences on January 1st, 2004. Currently there are 20 Avans schools that can be found throughout the southern Netherlands in the cities of Breda, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, and Tilburg.

Approximately 29,000 students follow studies offered at Avans University. Three main tenets, security, inspiration, and sincerity, build the foundations of Avans University’s mission to help future graduates become socially responsible, highly qualified professionals.

Educational approach

Within a welcoming atmosphere in which students can become qualified professionals of the corporate sector, Avans focuses on teaching students via project-based learning (PBL). This type of learning helps students gain the knowledge, skills, and attitude necessary for real work situations. Students are also expected to do work placements throughout their programme in a variety of international companies around the world to gain experience.

Avans ensures foreign students feel at home at this institution with the help of a buddy system. Each foreign student is given a study buddy who is already familiar with Dutch culture, knows the campus, and is interested in the culture and home country of the foreign student. This facilitates the integration and adaption of the foreign student at Avans.

Awards and Rankings

In 2015 many of Avans' Bachelor’s programmes are voted first in their respective categories by the National Student Survey.

Elsevier, the Dutch news magazine, has ranked Avans 1st in the category of medium-sized professional universities, as 70% (26 out of 37) of the courses are considered ‘above average’ according to student satisfaction. Keuzegids HBO 2016 has also named Avans UAS the best large-sized university of applied sciences in the Netherlands.

Avans maintains top positions in both rankings since 2006.
