The Netherlands



Zuyd is a university of applied sciences offering highly rated education and applied research with a strong orientation to professional practice.  The university offers over 40 bachelor’s and 12 master’s degree programmes, a number of them taught in English. The fields of study offered in English include:

•    International Business
•    European Studies
•    Hospitality Management
•    Interdisciplinary Arts (I-arts)
•    Music

Inspired by its strategic location in the heart of Europe, Zuyd trains students for international careers and we actively facilitate international work placements and study abroad programmes.

Despite the large student numbers - Zuyd has over 14.000 students of more than 40 nationalities- the  programmes feel comfortably small-scale and personal in set-up. Students work in small groups with approachable lecturers, to stimulate interaction and active learning. Programmes offer a well-balanced mix of lectures, project work, group and individual assignments.  All programmes taught in English have international classrooms where students are challenged to experience the values of cultural diversity.
Zuyd  is located in the southernmost part of the country, where the borders of the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium meet. At this crossroads of countries, cultures and languages it offers you an international and vibrant learning environment.
