About Hague University of Applied Sciences and Scholarship
The formation of The Hague University of Applied Sciences dates back to January 12, 1987, resulting from the merger of six municipal and nine special institutions of higher professional education in The Hague. Among these institutions, the Hogere Technische School voor Bouw- en Waterbouwkunde stood as the oldest, tracing its origins to the Haagsche Teeken-Academie, founded in 1682, later evolving into the Royal Academy of Art. The university officially commenced its academic journey on September 1, 1987.
Over the ensuing years, The Hague University of Applied Sciences underwent continuous expansion. In 2003, it merged with the Technische Hogeschool Rijswijk and relocated to the campus of Delft University of Technology, subsequently adopting the name The Hague University of Applied Sciences. The Delft campus was inaugurated in 2009. Concurrently, in 2003, the university initiated the Academy for IT & Design in Zoetermeer, established in collaboration with the local business community. This academy now operates as the Faculty of IT & Design.
The Hague University of Applied Sciences offers English Academic Preparation courses (Prep School) spanning six months or one year, aimed at enhancing English proficiency and preparing students for life in the Netherlands.
Recognizing the challenges faced by asylum seekers and their resilience in building a new life in a foreign country, The Hague University of Applied Sciences is extending an opportunity for them to become valuable contributors to society. In response to the increasing number of refugees in the Netherlands, the university, in collaboration with The Hague University of Applied Science Pro, is offering up to three Susana Menendez Bright Future Scholarships (BFS) for the 2023-2024 academic year. Open to all asylum status holders, the scholarship underscores the belief that international talent should not go untapped.
The university views higher education as a crucial tool in preparing refugees for the Dutch job market, facilitating the expansion of their networks, and enhancing their knowledge. The Susana Menendez Bright Future Scholarships cover the full tuition fees for successful candidates. Additionally, books will be provided, with the expectation of their return upon graduation. This initiative aims to empower talented individuals ready to embrace the challenge and enroll in one of the Master’s programs offered in English.
