A university of applied sciences
There are two types of universities in Dutch higher education: traditional research universities and universities of applied sciences.
As a university of applied sciences, THUAS focuses on training and career preparation and it's working closely with professionals to make sure that programmes are cutting edge and relevant to industry.
Businesses and institutions help design our curricula, which means they are hands-on, solution orientated and reflect market conditions.
Most lecturers are working professionals, giving students a first hand insight into their field. During interactive sessions, they will ask questions, set assignments and encourage debate to hone analytical skills that are critical in business.
Key teaching and research covers mainly seven fields:
- Business, Finance & Marketing
- Health, Nutrition & Sports
- IT & Design; Management & Organisation
- Public Management, Law & Safety
