Industrial Design Engineering - English - 3 years - Full-time

Ever wondered how IKEA managed to become the largest and most popular furniture retailer in the world? Well, it might have had something to do with the fact they let groups of users share their experience of the products and create sustainable furniture to suit their needs. Co-creation has become a reality for every professional designer. And it’s second nature to our IDE ‘open innovator’ students at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS). Anyone can come up with a ground-breaking idea. But IDE teaches you to funnel your creativity by collaborating with all stakeholders, taking ethics and other cultures into account and making a positive impact with the launch of your project.

You have a non-Dutch diploma

To enrol for the IDE 3 year programme you will need a secondary school diploma comparable to a Dutch VWO diploma and a good command of English.
Also, you need to have passed your exam in mathematics.

Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll need to assess your secondary school certificate.
To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualifications.

Perhaps your academic background is not quite the right level. Or you need some help improving your English skills. Don’t worry. There might be some alternative options to help you get in, and prepare yourself for a successful start of your studies at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS).

21+ admissions test
If you’re 21 years old before 1 September 2020, but don’t have a diploma or a qualification that meets the entry requirements, you can take the 21+ Admissions Test. The 21+ Admissions Test is offered at several dates between January and the start of the academic year, and consists of a digital general capacity test. Please note that you can only participate if you have an EEA-nationality or residence permit for the Netherlands that is valid on the test date.

PREP school (English Academic Preparation School)
If your diploma grants admission to the follow up programme of your choice, but you have not quite reached the required level of English, we offer an English PREP school. On completion of this programme, you’ll not only be ready to join a degree programme at THUAS, but you’ll also have learnt a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and about our university.

The Hague Pathway College
The Hague Pathway College will prepare you for success in a 3-year English-taught Bachelor’s programmes at THUAS, if your diploma does not allow for direct admission. During the International Foundation Year you will enhance your subject related knowledge (like Maths, Economics or Physics, depending on the bachelor’s you’d like to study), improve your English language level and strengthen your academic skills. After learning the essentials, you’re ready to start the 3-year bachelor’s programme of your choice without the need to take additional tests like IELTS.

This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.

Bachelor’s candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.

All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language test.

Please check our entry requirements for more information.

If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above you might still qualify for exemption, if:

  • you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
  • you have a European or International Baccalaureate Diploma

Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.

There are no exceptions to the official admission requirements. The Enrolment Office is the only party that can make decisions regarding your qualification for admission based on official regulations. You can’t rely on any other sources of information for your qualification for admission.
