Facts & Figures

​Hanze University of Applied Sciences is a large, comprehensive university of applied sciences that has been educating skilled and committed professionals for over two centuries. Hanze graduates enrich those they come into contact with, both individuals and society at large. They share their talents and move the world. This world has changed over the past two hundred years and our university of applied sciences has changed along with it.

Despite all the changes, one thing has been constant from the very beginning: our desire to make a contribution to society. In 1798 six leading citizens of Groningen founded the Academy for Draughtsmanship, Architecture and Seamanship, which became known as Academy Minerva thirty years later. In the end, this became Hanze UAS Groningen. The aim of its founders was to 'give those of both limited and more substantial means an opportunity to receive easily available and more regular Education'. Even then the Academy's social and emancipatory role was already a central feature of the founding charter. But so too were entrepreneurship, self-fulfilment, application, usefulness, competence and expertise – all values that continue to be relevant to Hanze UAS today. They underpin our mission and are reflected in our motto – Share your talent. Move the world. Backed by this tradition, we train professionals in more than 70 degree programmes, from associate degrees to Master's programmes, both full-time and part-time. In recent years our teaching has become even more tightly integrated with applied research and professional practice. Within four research centres and two centres of expertise, we work on applied research that will benefit society.
