Windesheim Honours College
Top rated University of Applied Sciences
Windesheim is one of the Netherlands' top universities of applied sciences with many top-rated bachelors' programmes. With well over 25,000 full-time and part-time students, Windesheim is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands.
Windesheim is a dynamic community that brings people together to exchange knowledge and expertise. We seek to educate students who are fully qualified professionals ready to enter the international labour market. To this end, we constantly invest in educational innovation and student development.
Windesheim has a growing student population and is highly regarded by students, experts and employers. The two main independent annual studies about the Dutch higher education sector, ‘Elsevier’ and the ‘Higher Education Selection Guide’, rank us in their top three for already many years in a row. One of our success factors is our personal approach: students work in small groups and each talent counts. Lecturers are not just teachers, but coaches as well. They challenge students to reflect, think critically and get the best out of themselves. We are geared to personalized education that meets the requirements of our students, the labour market and society at large. The foundation stones of our approach include competency-based learning and a personal development plan for every student.
Windesheim’s innovative and entrepreneurial approach and our close collaboration with businesses and institutions make our knowledge immediately applicable. Gaining practical experience through internships is an integral part of our study programmes.
