Vision

Eight anchor points

What we are and what we wish to achieve as VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) 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.
