On eight campuses in the Randstad, we offer around 80 Dutch and 6 English bachelor's degrees in all fields of study: from healthcare to economics, from technology to education. All courses are geared towards the needs of the professional field, resulting in top-quality degrees with contemporary and in-demand graduation tracks. 

Observing, listening and speaking up when needed are key skills you learn at Inholland. We teach students to persevere where others stop. We help foster an eagerness in students to become life-long learners in our ever-changing world.


Our courses of study also include a solid research programme. Together with our research professors, we pay 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.

Student Reviews

Inholland University of Applied Sciences Rotterdam
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

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

HEI is an organisational mess. Halfway through they suddenly decided to restructure the program, which lead to an awful lot of confusion among the students. Also, there's little to no support for students. If you try to get in contact with the right people, you're just sent from person to person. Information is not properly centralised. Teachers are ok, education material...

To be recommended!
