Bachelor’s at universities of applied sciences

At universities of applied sciences you can enrol in bachelor’s programmes in a broad range of disciplines, such as economics, health care, fine arts, agriculture etc. Within each discipline there is a large variety of programmes, which can vary in content from one institution to the next.

Universities of applied sciences have a great deal of freedom in determining the content  and structure of their programmes. This has led to the introduction of honours programmes for talented students, of majors and minors, and dual programmes, in which you study for a while and then work for a period of time. Most bachelor programmes are structured around a first year (propedeuse), followed by the main phase of three years.

The focus of the programmes is on providing you with the necessary skills and competencies for an employement in a specific field. This means that you will get practical, hands-on experience through internships, in addition to classroom instruction, working on projects and group assignments. After obtaining a bachelor's degree you can enroll in a master's program or you can start working in your field of study.
