Practical teaching to turn your ideas into practical solutions.

We aim to help you put theory into practice as quickly as possible and we do this through Design-Based Education. It’s a concept that applies to the whole of your programme’s curriculum, a way of looking at what and how you learn. And it’s practical – on both a personal and professional level. Assignments from the business world mean you get to develop and test your ideas so that you get solutions that can actually be applied. Working in interdisciplinary groups helps you develop your team and leadership skills while guidance from your personal study coach will keep you on track so you are prepared for your future in an ever-changing world.

  • Design-Based Education (DBE) transforms ideas into practical solutions
  • Work in small, interdisciplinary groups on assignments from real clients
  • Put theory you learn into practice in our Learning Companies

Kyra Bär knew when she was 14 that she wanted to get into events management, to put her organisational skills to use. Being practically minded, she was careful to choose a university of applied sciences that would match her hands-on approach. Now in her third year at NHL Stenden, she considers herself an ambassador for its educational concept.
