Windesheim University of Applied Sciences ranks first in Elsevier Weekly’s annual survey of the quality of universities of applied sciences. The survey awards a medal to twenty-one programmes in our university of applied sciences, including ten gold medals. This puts Windesheim in first place among all broad-based universities of applied sciences.

Gold medals

A total of ten programmes received a gold medal, which means they achieved exceptional scores on at least eight out of eleven items.

  • The programmes of Teacher Education in Physical Education and Finance & Control (Zwolle) were awarded a gold medal for the third year in a row.
  • Gold medals also went to the programmes of Human Resource Management, Speech and Language Therapy, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Spatial Development (Almere) and Spatial Development (Zwolle).
  • For the programmes of Global Project and Change Management, Accountancy and Psychomotor Therapy/Psychomotricity it was their first gold medal.

  • The Teacher Education in Geography and Teacher Education in Welfare and Health Care programmes received their first silver medal.
  • A silver medal also went to the Logistics Engineering and Logistics Management programmes.

Bronze medals

There are also seven programmes with a bronze medal because of their exceptional scores on four or five items.

Explanatory note to the medals

In the National Student Survey (‘NSE’) students are asked to assess various aspects of their study programme. Best Study Programmes 2023 compares survey results in the same sector. A programme gets a medal if they achieve a significantly-better-than-average score on at least five items. A top ranking for three years means a gold medal, two years is a silver medal and one year is bronze. For more information, see below.
