Detailed info

General information

If you are looking for an internationally focused and globally recognised degree that will prepare you for a fulfilling career, The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THU) is for you. We have all the resources you need to step comfortably into the international labour market and enhance your CV, with our strong links to top international businesses and institutions.

A university of applied sciences

There are two types of universities in Dutch higher education: traditional research universities and universities of applied sciences. As a university of applied sciences, THU focuses on training and career preparation. Our bachelors take three or four years, while masters take 12 or 18 months. We put less emphasis on degree academic research, which means that you may be asked to take a bridging course if you go on to study a masters at a Dutch research university.

Specialization

THU runs nine bachelors programmes and three masters programmes taught entirely in English. International students can also get a taste for THU life and ‘dip in’ for a semester or two as an international exchange student. The programmes cover six broad fields that will prepare you for your chosen career path. These include technology, innovation and society; law, security and society; management and organisation; ICT and media; health and sport; economy and finance; and society and education.

You can polish up on your English skills on the English Language Preparatory School course beforehand.

Educational approach

THU’s vision

With lecturers, staff and fellow students from 146 nationalities you’ll grow as an independent thinking world citizen in a cosmopolitan environment. This diversity will enrich your personal growth and prepare you for work in a multi-cultural organisation. We believe that students develop their talents through teamwork, sharing knowledge and debate. International students that can prove they are a world citizen and contribute to our diverse community may qualify for our special World Citizen Scholarship.

Putting study into practice

We work closely with professionals to make sure that our programmes are cutting edge and relevant to industry. Businesses and institutions help design our curricula, which means they are hands-on, solution orientated and reflect market conditions. Our lecturers are working professionals, giving you a first hand insight into their field. During interactive sessions, they will ask questions, set assignments and encourage debate to hone analytical skills that are critical in business.

Work placements

During your chosen programme, you’ll step behind the scenes in offices and laboratories to gain hands-on experience on compulsory work placements. This is your chance to put your learning into practice at an international company or institution of your choice. This work experience and skills are in high demand by companies and organisations, which means that you will have a head start in your career.
