Detailed info

General information

Originally named the Dutch Scientific Institute for Tourism (NWIT), NHTV Breda University was founded in 1966 in the city of Breda, about 100 km from both Amsterdam and Brussels. Initially focused on tourism, it quickly evolved to encompass recreation, languages, economy, and transport studies.

In 2001, the name was officially changed for the 3rd time to NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences UAS, and in 2009 academiс Bachelor’s programmes in tourism and leisure sciences began to be offered alongside the other Applied Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes already available.

With nearly 12% of the student population being from abroad, and many of the programmes taught in English, the institution prides itself on being international in many aspects.

Specialization

Founded as an institute mainly focused on management programmes in tourism and leisure, NHTV Breda now has a variety of programmes available for students, both at the Bachelor’s and Master’s level.

Developing this focus throughout the years has allowed NHTV Breda to extend into other fields, while still maintaining its top spot in tourism and leisure as the leading institution in the world. Students can now choose from five faculties of study, all dedicated to real, hands-on work experience throughout the course of their programme.

The specialist disciplines of NHTV are: Digital Entertainment, Hospitality & Facility, Leisure, Tourism, Urban Development, Logistics & Mobility.

Educational approach

NHTV Breda University uses an ‘action learning’ educational approach, that designed to get students to learn by doing realistic work-based assignments. Instilling values like integrity and sustainability, NHTV Breda teaches its students how to become responsible and innovative members of society.

Awards and Rankings

The Dutch government has also awarded NHTV Breda’s International Hotel Management programme a label of excellence for their close work with the hospitality sector.

Alongside these accomplishments, NHTV Breda became a World Leisure Centre of Excellence. It makes NHTV Breda the third Centre of Excellence in the world, and the first one in Europe.

NHTV Breda’s programmes are often ranked highly in national rankings published by reputable sources such as the Dutch new magazine, Elsevier, the National Student Survey, and the Keuzegids student guide.

In 2013 NHTV Breda was ranked as the first best university among small-sized professional institutions in the Elsevier ranking, while Keuzegids HBO Voltijd 2014 placed it on overall 3rd position. Both rankings placed university degree programmes among the best in The Netherlands.
