Fontys is a leading European University of Applied Sciences and offers international programmes in English, Dutch or German. It is based in the south of the Netherlands near the border with Germany and Belgium, one of the most dynamic regions in Europe. With more than 200 study programs, over 3.000 employees and about 40.000 students Fontys is one of the major Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences and one of the largest educational institutions in the Netherlands. Over 4.000 students are from abroad; they come from more than 70 countries in the world.

Fontys Hogescholen (Fontys University of Applied Sciences, or ‘Fontys’) is one of the largest Dutch universities, with campuses located primarily in the south of Holland. Despite the large student numbers, education at Fontys is organised on a small scale. At Fontys, internationalisation is a key issue. We offer English-language education to foreign students who wish to follow complete course programmes and/or to foreign students visiting us as exchange students. Quality is the key feature of the Fontys vision. We strive to achieve a level of quality that will match that of any higher education institution in the European context.

Fontys focuses particular attention on the parameters necessary for ensuring the smooth progress of studies, such as study career supervision, coaching and a ‘buddy’ system, education and examination timetables, feedback regarding assessments and assignments, study progress registration, information provision and the accessibility of teaching staff.
We strive to be an educational institution that ‘inspires growth through support & challenges’. This is also something that you will notice throughout Fontys, i.e. in the course programmes, in the teaching staff, in the personal supervision that you will receive and in the facilities available. At Fontys, you will learn in conjunction with others and we will provide you with intensive supervision throughout this process. In short, selecting Fontys for your further education amounts to a good choice!

Tuition fees for Bachelor Programmes are € 2,080 per year. EU/EEA students who are not entitled to full study grants for a Dutch course in higher education can apply for a loan to pay their tuition fees. You repay the sum you borrowed after your studies.
