International strategy

Internationalisation is one of the key focus areas in our study programmes and in our collaboration with partners all over the world.

Breda University of Applied Sciences opted for profiling itself as an international institution for higher education many years ago. The basis of this choice lies in the international curriculum, in which the content of the programme and practical cases are placed in an international perspective.

The internationally composed classrooms are a key learning environment which we consider to be enriching and extremely relevant to the future of graduates in the rapidly globalising world.

In the meantime, the majority of our bachelor and all master programmes are delivered in English and attract more than 1,000 degree seeking students from all over the world. The connection with the international industry is very strong as more than 50% of all students do their work placement and/or graduation projects and theses abroad.

A considerable number of staff members (15%) are from outside the Netherlands and many more have international experience either in the industry or in the academic world.
