List of Universities in The Netherlands - Universities of Applied Science

Universities of Applied Science

Universities of Applied Science in the Netherlands is the official English term for institutions of tertiary education that in Dutch are called hogeschool. Their focus is towards professional education rather than scientific research. They are accredited to confer bachelor's, master's and, prior to the Bologna Process, professional engineer's (abbreviated ing.) degrees.

While the literal translation of hogeschool is "high school", the level is equal to that of a Vocational University. They can also be compared with colleges, polytechnics, and universities of applied arts. Dutch Universities of Applied Science are not accredited to confer doctorates (PhD) degrees; PhD studies can sometimes be conducted in the context of a university of applied science, however, the title will be granted by one of the research universities, and a full professor of that university will be appointed as principal supervisor (promotor). In international contexts, the phrase University of Applied Sciences is used for the majority of these schools, as suggested by the Dutch Minister of Education. Some specific exceptions have been made. For example, tertiary art schools and schools of education use an internationally recognisable name of choice.

Famous quotes containing the words science, universities and/or applied:

    The whole of science is nothing more than a refinement of everyday thinking.
    Albert Einstein (1879–1955)

    The rush to books and universities is like the rush to the public house. People want to drown their realization of the difficulties of living properly in this grotesque contemporary world, they want to forget their own deplorable inefficiency as artists in life.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    Standards of conduct appropriate to civil society or the workings of a democracy cannot be purely and simply applied to the Church.
    Joseph Ratzinger (b. 1927)
