Our study programmes

Zuyd offers five Bachelor’s and seven Master’s degree programmes that are taught in English. It is an open invitation for you to immerse yourself in a truly international environment, with fellow students from all corners of the world. Experience and celebrate cultural diversity like you’ve never done before, both inside and outside the classroom. You will have the time of your life.

Small-scale and intimate 
We offer you the best of both worlds: a small-scale, intimate learning environment. 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.
