VISION

Eight anchor points

What we are and what we wish to achieve as Van Hall Larenstein is anchored in the eight points below, which together form our vision:

  • VHL is the most sustainable university of applied sciences in the Netherlands and demonstrates this in every study programme, in the content of its research and in its operational management;
  • VHL chooses a clear profile with content that forms the framework for all our strategic choices in the field of education and practice-based research;
  • Every study programme at VHL contributes towards at least one of the priority areas of the profile, with all students learning to work in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary fashion;
  • VHL is focused on regional, national and international students;
  • Alongside regular education, VHL wants to meet the demand for training from the professional field;
  • VHL is a personal institution and therefore wishes to give space to individual students to develop their talents in an inspirational environment;
  • Through research and knowledge valorisation, VHL contributes to innovative and sustainable developments in collaboration with partners from the professional field;
  • VHL is a financially sound and future-proof organisation.
