Windesheim remains a solid runner-up in the ranking of 'Best major universities of applied sciences' of the HBO Keuzegids 2023.

Windesheim University of Applied Sciences is the runner-up in the ranking of 'Best major universities of applied sciences’ of the HBO Keuzegids 2023, with Avans University of Applied Sciences in first place. Avans comes out three points ahead of Windesheim, as it did last year. As many as eighteen Bachelor's programmes and two Ad programmes are given the ‘Top Programme’ designation. These top programmes have scores of 75 points or higher and are assessed as significantly better than the national hbo average, which is 60 points. In the ranking of Associate degrees (Ads), our university of applied sciences also takes second place, right behind Saxion University of Applied Sciences.


Executive Board President Inge Grimm: 'I am proud of this honourable place in the ranking of major universities of applied sciences in the Keuzegids. This position confirms the quality of education we offer in the Almere and Zwolle areas, which we also aim to improve continuously. Above all, such a high ranking is a token of appreciation for all our lecturers and staff, and of course also the professionals in the field we work with. Collaboration between all these committed people makes it possible to give concrete substance to our 'Closer to you’ principle. Taking note of this second spot is for now a moment to celebrate intensely and after that, as far as I’m concerned, it's back to work and full steam ahead. With a focus on fine challenges in lifelong development, educational development and intensifying our relationship with the local area and the labour market.'
