We challenge students to dare to learn. We take a personal and accessible approach, operating on the conviction that success and adversity are twin catalysts for professional and personal development, for both lecturers and students. Diversity is an asset in this regard. 

We offer students an environment in which they dare to learn and gain the confidence to experiment and try things out in a learning community which is located in the heart of society. We give our students the flexibility and resilience that they will need later on in their work: as professionals who are not afraid of change and who can deal with both success and failure. Our approach is personal and accessible, and diversity is our strength.

Housing services

At Inholland University of Applied Sciences we know that finding the right accommodation is very important for our students. Choosing a place to live which suits your needs and budget can be a challenge. 

Unfortunately, Inholland cannot guarantee accommodation for our international students. The shortage of student rooms makes finding accommodation very difficult and we advise all students to start looking for accommodation at least 4 months prior to arrival. In some cities, Inholland offers a limited number of rooms for international students. 

It is your own responsibility to find a place to live prior to arrival, but we will do our utmost to help you in the process!

Student Life

Campus life

Selecting a university of applied sciences is not simply a case of finding a degree programme that suits your talents and career choice. It is also about finding a place that makes you feel at home.

Our programmes are spread out over eight campuses across the cultural, political and industrial heart of the Netherlands: the Randstad. These locations are strongly linked but each of them has its own individual character.  Our English bachelor's degrees are taught in Amsterdam/Diemen, Delft, Haarlem and The Hague.

Inholland Diemen has an informal atmosphere with lots of pleasant study rooms. 

Student clubs

Inholland contributes to local and international challenges in professional practice. We do this through education and by conducting applied research for professional practice. Leading the way on the themes of sustainability, health and creativity, students and lecturers work on real-life issues from professional practice. They do this in consultation with businesses, not-for-profit organisations and education and research institutions.


Only degrees awarded by the programmes published on this website are recognised by all the authorities in the Netherlands and Flanders.

Internationally, the Qrossroads website lists accredited programmes from European countries. All Inholland programmes are accredited.

Program is okay, organisational structure of the University is really bad. Teachers are never available and entire programs get reformed all of a sudden, leaving students with a very big challenge to actually pass classes. Also nobody ever responds to their emails
