The Hague, the Netherlands
Let’s change!

Let’s change. You. Us. The World. That’s our message at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS).


We want to empower students to change and improve the world we live in, but this can only happen if we work together – if we evolve and change. We educate our student citizens to ‘think outside the box’ and apply these new perspectives and solutions to make changes to our world.

THUAS is an innovative environment where almost 26,000 students from more than 140 different countries and over 300 exchange partners come together every day.

Our education

The world needs global citizens who can make a difference and react to constantly changing situations. Our graduates are perfectly equipped to step out into a globalised economy and society with a desire for growth and development and the support of our enthusiastic, expert teachers.

The professional world is constantly reflected in our practical work. Our students go on internships to develop the teamwork and problem solving skills needed to succeed in their careers, mixing theory with practice.

Our research

As well as education, THUAS plays an essential role in practice oriented research. The innovations we make in our research contribute to education, professional practice and wider society. We work closely with industry and government institutions, both nationally and internationally.

We also offer an English Language Preparatory School for those would like to improve their English language skills before starting a bachelor’s or master’s programme of The Hague University of Applied Sciences or at other institutions of Higher Education in the Netherlands. www.thehagueuniversity.nl/prepschool

During the summer and winter students from all over the world join us to explore society’s future in the United Nations City of Peace, Justice and Security. www.thehaguesummerschool.com
