Hanze UAS is a University of Applied Sciences with more than 2,700 employees and over 25,000 Dutch and foreign students who have enrolled in one of the seventy degree programmes in the fields of economics, technology, health care, education and teacher training, social work, labour relations, fine arts, and music. Hanze UAS is one of the largest and most all-round universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands.
Under the name of HanzeConnect, courses, training, workshops, and post-graduate degree programmes (Master programmes) are offered on a commercial basis. The aim is to make our knowledge and expertise available to the general public and more specifically to trade, industry and institutions in the field of healthcare and social work.
The general management of Hanze UAS is in the hands of the Executive Board, supported by a Staff Office. The members of the Executive Board are: Mr drs. Henk Pijlman, chairman and president, Ms drs. Marian van Os and Mr dr. J.H. de Ruiter.
Hanze UAS is for the major part housed on the so-called Zernike Complex, a campus-like area in the north of the city. Here you will find the buildings of the Executive Board and its supporting Staff Office, and most of our schools. The other schools (for example the School of Fine Arts and Design, the School of Performing Arts and the School of Health Care Studies) are housed in various buildings across the city.
Hanze UAS is leading with respect to the use of information and communication technology in education. We want to make sure that our students are well prepared for a professional career in the 21st century. That is why a student learns to work with digital communication tools, the Internet and other multimedia forms that are important in his or her professional field. Every student has access to the Internet and to the internal network of the university and gets a personal e-mail address. A student can also register for exams and consult his or her records digitally.
Electronic Learning Environment
All departments have introduced the electronic learning environment into their education. It provides the student with a wide range of information on the programme as a whole and the various parts that make up the programme. It also gives a survey of frequently asked questions and answers to these questions. The student can communicate with lecturers and fellow students, via e-mail, or via chat and discussion groups. The electronic learning environment is also used by students to work together on group projects and assignments.
Hanze Media Centre
Hanze UAS has an ultra-modern Hanze Media Centre with branches at the Campus and other locations. Hanze Media Centre's collections include: specialist literature, reference books, magazines and newspapers, audio and videotapes, software, information on CD-rom, student placement reports and student theses.
