Unlock the world at NHL Stenden 

These are exciting times! Stenden University of Applied Sciences and NHL University of Applied Sciences have merged. As of 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.

Our educational concept combines an interdisciplinary approach with a practical focus. This means you get real-world assignments to solve. The practical application of your own innovative solutions is at the core of this method. This way of working has been in the DNA of both institutions, so continuing down that fruitful path is the obvious choice to make.  

If you enrol at NHL Stenden, you will join both Dutch and international students like yourself. It is a truly international experience. You will be prepared for a dynamic world, and ready to cross borders. We are looking forward to guiding you on your journey towards becoming a full-fledged professional.

Welcome to NHL Stenden!
