Universities of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands

Universities of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands offer higher professional education. These universities are characterized by their practical orientation. An internship forms an integral part of the curriculum. This is not always the case with traditional research universities. Students at universities of applied sciences are being prepared for careers in a range of sectors; from finance to health care management.

Degree Programs Offered by Universities of Applied Sciences

The degrees awarded by Universities of Applied Sciences differ from the ones awarded by Research Universities. The first difference is that bachelor degree programs take 4 years to complete at Universities of Applied Sciences. At Research Universities they take 3 years.

Another difference concerns the status of the diploma.
