Working towards change
Personal development is something we value at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Predominantly the personal development of our students, of course, but also that of ourselves and the parties with whom we collaborate. You never become a world citizen by yourself, after all.
This is why we devote a great deal of attention to personal qualities, coaching and supervision.
Study & Career Centre
Prospective and current students can find answers to any of their questions at our Study & Career Centre (SCC). Prospective students can find out more about our degree programmes on Open Days and at the various information fairs. They can experience what a degree programme ‘feels like’ by shadowing or taking part in an Orientation Programme. And of course the SCC is available to provide consultations or workshops to help them make their choice. The SCC is also the first port of call for current students with questions. By providing information materials, tests, assessments and advice, the SCC assists students in making their study or career choices.
A great example of this are our Language Buddies: students who use their native language to help other students master that language, because they need it for their studies or future job, for example. These buddies help their pupils improve their fluency, assist with their assignments, work on presentations and prepare for examinations. In many cases they also earn credits for this themselves.
Students with a functional disability
There is a working group at The Hague University of Applied Sciences that has been set up with and for students with a functional disability. The aim is to make it easy to study and also to raise awareness of all the facilities offered by The Hague University of Applied Sciences. The working group advises on improvements and organises talks, debates and workshops to raise awareness of studying with a functional disability.
