Study in an international and practical oriented environment at NHL Stenden.

Course Overview

Starting from September 2018, we will present our joint selection of study programmes as NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences.

By combining our strengths, we are sure we can provide our students with the best possible education. Our brand-new organisation retains the rich history and experience of both institutions, dating back to the year 1845. This results in an internationally orientated institution, with strong ties to local communities and businesses.
