On nine campuses in the Randstad, we offer around 80 bachelor programmes in all fields of study: from healthcare to economics, from technology to education. In addition, Inholland is home to seven master programmes. All our courses are geared towards the needs of the professional field, resulting in top-quality degrees with contemporary and in-demand graduation tracks.


Our courses of study also include a solid research programme. Together with our research professors, we pay crucial attention to practical research in particular. Not only does this help us to strengthen the quality of our education but it also enables us to make valuable and important connections with the work field. Practical research helps us to be able to work on difficult issues with which society is struggling and to do this in a socially responsible manner.


To turn knowledge into economic growth and jobs is one of our greatest challenges. That's why Inholland University of Applied Sciences wants to cultivate entrepreneurship in its students. Inholland aims to have a close relationship with students, the market and society. Accordingly, entrepreneurship is not an optional subject but an integral part of our study programmes.
