Fontys University Of Applied Sciences

Introduction

The Fontys University of Applied Sciences is one of the largest higher educational institutions in The Netherlands. The key features of Fontys include the following:

A small-scale approach

Despite the fact that Fontys is one of the largest higher educational institutions in the south of The Netherlands, its teaching is conducted in small-scale environments at the various Fontys locations. As a result, a great deal of attention is given to your personal development and at the same time, you can profit from the huge diversity offered by Fontys as a whole.

Practical orientation

At Fontys, teaching is geared towards developments in society and in the labour market. The course programmes are highly practically orientated. In the English-language programmes, use is made of a variety of didactic techniques. Of course, students are supervised, counselled and trained by excellent teaching staff to help them to ultimately become all-round professionals. During your course programme, you will complete an internship and a graduation term, in which you must prove that you can adequately analyse, tackle and solve problems.

Student-centred education at Fontys

As a Fontys student, you may design your own study path, i.e. you may determine your own route through the range of course programmes available, formulate your own learning requirements and reflect critically on your own strengths and weaknesses.


Majors & Minors 

Bachelor degree programmes at Fontys are broken down into a Major and at least one Minor. The Major offers broad-based education for your future profession, whilst one or more Minors will provide you with the opportunity to focus on specific subject areas, whereby you can broaden your career prospects, or decide to focus on your area of specialisation. In principle, you can select from the entire range of Minor subjects on offer at Fontys, or you may decide to select a Minor to be conducted at one of the Fontys partner universities within, or outside The Netherlands.


International orientation 

As a student entering an English-language degree programme, you will interact with individuals of other nationalities, thereby starting to build your international network at an early stage in your student life. Working in multicultural teams is an experience in itself.
