Windesheim University of Applied Sciences is a Dutch vocational university institute for higher education and applied research. With approx.27,000 students and 2,700 members of staff, Windesheim is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. 

We pursue a personal approach where students work in small groups and where each talent counts. Lecturers are coaches as well and they challenge students get the best out of themselves. For extra talented students Windesheim has an honours programme where students can do extracurricular courses. Windesheim is also renowned for its innovative and entrepreneurial approach. We have many close ties with the business community and public institutes which makes the knowledge immediately applicable in practice. All students do internships at and projects together with companies and institutes during their study programme. 

We are proud to be the  number 2 applied University in the Netherlands for already eight years in a row, mainly because of our personal approach, small classes (15-20 students) and flexible learning pathway. We offer two different English taught business programmes (bachelor):

1. ‘International Business’, a programme for students with a broad interest. It’s about finance, marketing, logistics and human resource management. We have a lot of practice in the programme, an internship and study abroad, and we learn you a lot of practical skills. Here you can read more: www.windesheim.com/ib

2. Global Project and Change Management: a sustainable business programme for students who are interested in making the world a better place to live in a business-like way. Topics are climate change, pollution, eradicating hunger and disease, gender equality, etcetera. Would that be interesting for you?

Windesheim as it currently exists was formed in 1986 as the result of the merger of several education providers. The merger took place over a number of years with more and more institutions joining. The academy for Journalism and the academy for Social Studies from Kampen became part of the new institute as well as the School of Physical Exercise from Arnhem. Most of the education providers who joined were located in Zwolle: Higher Education in Economics and Administration (HEAO), Higher Education in Engineering and Technology (HTS), College of Education, School of Nursing, Academy of Journalism and Higher Education in Information Technology. These separate institutions all became part of Windesheim which then joined forces on an administrative level with the VU University Amsterdam. In 2012 this set up was discontinued and both institutions now have their own board and organization behind them. In September 2006, it changed its degree system to the bachelor/master system.
