Hanze University of Applied Sciences
Groningen, the Netherlands
If you choose to study at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, you will be joining
a learning community where we bring education, applied research and the business field together. And on top of that, you will be living in the best student city of the Netherlands.
Learning outside of the classroom
At Hanze UAS you are not just part of our academic community. You will apply what you learn to larger issues facing society. We focus on energy, healthy ageing and entrepreneurship. Regardless of which programme you choose, we stimulate and support you to specialise in one of these areas, for example, at EnTranCe, our energy transition testing ground; Health Hub Roden, our medical technology centre; or Cube050, our incubator and business accelerator where students can start and grow their own businesses.
Working together with the business community
There is only one way to find out what you want to do with your degree and that is gain real-life work experience. That is why you will do at least one work placement during your
programme. We have a strong network of national and international business partners in a variety of fields. Work experience not only lets you find out what kind of job fits with you, it also puts you ahead on the job market after graduation.
