A university of applied sciences (in Dutch:'hogeschool') offers programmes that focus on the practical application of arts and sciences.
Getting practical work experience through internships (in the Netherlands and abroad) is an important part of the professional study programmes offered at these institutions.
Areas of interest:
A research university is mainly responsible for offering research-oriented programmes in an academic setting.
Many programmes at research universities also have a professional component and most graduates actually find work outside the research community.
Studying abroad takes a lot of preparation. HAS University of Applied Sciences understands that an international student has a lot of things to think about before moving to the Netherlands, like do you need a visa, or a residence permit, or how to find suitable accommodation? That is why we offer our international students several services: to ensure all of you have a smooth start! We offer you assistance in dealing with all legal issues, help you find a student room for your first year and organise an introduction week in which you get to know the city as well as your future class mates.
There is only a limited number of computers available for self-study at HAS University of Applied Sciences location Den Bosch. On our location in Venlo, there are no self-study computers available. You are therefore strongly recommended to use your own laptop. There is a WiFi network available.
HAS University of Applied Sciences is located in 2 vibrant student cities. Both in Venlo and ‘s-Hertogenbosch you can join various events in and around the cities and undertake a diversity of activities. In short, enjoy your student time!
