Fontys Hogescholen (Fontys University of Applied Sciences, or ‘Fontys’) is one of the largest Dutch universities, with campuses located primarily in the south of Holland. Despite the large student numbers, education at Fontys is organised on a small scale. At Fontys, internationalisation is a key issue. We offer English-language education to foreign students who wish to follow complete course programmes and/or to foreign students visiting us as exchange students. Quality is the key feature of the Fontys vision. We strive to achieve a level of quality that will match that of any higher education institution in the European context.
Fontys focuses particular attention on the parameters necessary for ensuring the smooth progress of studies, such as study career supervision, coaching and a ‘buddy’ system, education and examination timetables, feedback regarding assessments and assignments, study progress registration, information provision and the accessibility of teaching staff.
Fontys strives to be an educational institution that ‘inspires growth through support & challenges’. This is also something that you will notice throughout Fontys, i.e. in the course programmes, in the teaching staff, in the personal supervision that you will receive and in the facilities available. At Fontys, you will learn in conjunction with others and we will provide you with intensive supervision throughout this process. In short, selecting Fontys for your further education amounts to a good choice!
