New campus tour shows the difference between universities of applied sciences (HBO) and research universities (WO)

Delft University of Technology, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Inholland University of Applied Sciences are organising a joint campus tour which allows pupils to find out about the various teaching formats and degree programmes at the three institutions. Choose well, study better.

From Friday 10 December, prospective students can register for this campus tour via the Delft University of Technology website.

Best start of your studies

If you have almost attained your pre-university education diploma, people around you usually assume you will go to university as the highest attainable level of further education. Yet each year at least 100 first-year students change their mind and transfer from the Delft University of Technology to The Hague University of Applied Sciences or Inholland University of Applied Sciences. With this new campus tour, prospective students get an extra chance to find out at close range about what happens and is achievable at the Delft campus.

The right choice

No two people are the same. One person likes to learn in small groups, while another does really well in a lecture room with hundreds of students. And where one student is interested in the how, the other mainly wants to know why. Such factors are important when choosing a study. Prospective students often give a lot of thought to the degree programme they want to follow in terms of content, but they think less about the level of the study. At the Delft campus, not only can you follow many technical degree programmes at research university level but also at university of applied sciences level. There are also options to progress. 

Three teaching formats

From 10 December, secondary school pupils can take a guided tour around the campus every Friday afternoon at 3pm. They will get information about the various teaching formats and degree programmes at Delft University of Technology, The Hague University of Applied Sciences and Inholland University of Applied Sciences. They also visit facilities that students from all three institutions can use, such as the X sports and culture centre and the library at Delft University of Technology. Parents are of course also welcome to join the tour. Through this campus tour, the three institutions want to clarify the difference between universities of applied sciences and research universities, so that prospective students can make an informed decision about the level of their degree programme.
