Our message

Let’s change. You. Us. The world. That’s our message at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS). We want to empower our students to change and improve the world they live in, but this can only happen if we work together and if we evolve and change.

We constantly need to apply new perspectives and solutions to resolve present and future challenges. We’ll find the answers more quickly if we’re prepared to share and apply each other’s insights, skills and methods.

Global citizens

We encourage our students, lecturers and partners to develop into open-minded global citizens – to stand firm in their own convictions and face the world. We realise that our own professional commitment makes a difference and we must work together to develop and apply creative solutions.

THUAS is a secure, hands-on environment where we can develop and innovate as global citizens – to come together to share in development, networking and practice. This is how we plan to shape and change the world we live in, while we develop our own knowledge and skills.

These are the values that drive us

Personal development

Personal development

Personal development is something we value at THUAS. Predominantly the personal development of our students, of course, but also that of ourselves and the parties with whom we collaborate.
