Avans is best University of Applied Sciences once again!

For the 10th time in 12 years, Avans has taken the number 1 spot in the list of best large universities of applied sciences in Keuzegids hbo (higher professional education options guide). President of the Executive Board Phillipe Raets feels this is a great achievement, especially during the coronavirus pandemic. "A big compliment from our students". 

It was unclear what the results would be this year. The big question was: to what extent would being forced to study from home negatively affect student satisfaction? The list in the Keuzegids hbo is partly based on the results from the National Student Survey, which had not been conducted for two years, partly due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There is a slight decrease in the rating for all universities of applied sciences, but apart from that, Avans has earned the highest scores for student satisfaction. In fact, Avans scored higher than last year, which means it is slightly further ahead of the number 2 Windesheim University of Applied Sciences.

22 of Avans' degree programmes were highlighted as being the best in the country. These include the English-language Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology.
