About the course

You are going to develop a hybrid or native app for a company. The focus is on implementation of the app, leading to maximum user experience on the specific
mobile platform (Android, iOS and/or Windows Phone). During the assignment you strive for a final product that is ready to be marketed, published in an app store and used by a real user group. 

Practical matters

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you get study credits that can count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So coming to Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your studies. You make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.

Every spring and autumn

The exchange programm App Development starts twice a year in spring and autumn (February and September). The application deadline for admission for the autumn semester is June 1st and for the spring semester is November 1st.

Theory will be learned on the job. To back this up, the semester configuration is demand-driven: workshops are offered just-in-time to support specific current learning issues. Some examples of workshops are Project management, Interview techniques, Time Planning, Stakeholder analysis and Research. The Workshop results are directly applicable in the project assignment.
