About the course

You are going to develop a hybrid or native app for a company. The focus is on the realisation of an app, leading to a maximum user experience on the specific mobile platform (Android, iOS or Windows Phone). During the assignment, you strive for a final product that can be launched into the market, be published in an app store and can be 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. The semester is further configured in a demand-driven way: depending on specific learning issues workshops are performed just-in-time. Some examples of workshops are Project management, Interview techniques, Time Planning, Stakeholder analysis and Research. Results of these workshops are directly applicable in the project assignment.
