Information about the institution Zuyd University of Applied Sciences offers you the best of both worlds: a small-scale, intimate learning environment with all the benefits of a larger institution. You can choose from a wide range of courses and enjoy excellent facilities in modern buildings. Despite being one of the largest UAS’s in the country, all of Zuyd’s faculties are relatively small, tight-knit communities, where you find a personal and welcoming atmosphere. Lectures are interactive, with room for personal guidance as well as the freedom to develop into a skilled and creative professional. Zuyd’s project-based learning method allows you to work in small groups of no more than 15 students, supported by a tutor. This method encourages you to actively participate in group discussions and to enhance your problem solving skills.
