The learning process is central

    A modern school reflects modern society. The study programme offers students a real home, and lecturers create a safe practice ground for the future role in the actual, professional practice and in society.

    They offer students education including long-term knowledge and skills for their careers.  Education that reflect the common values of the school such as: professionalism, a critical attitude, democracy and respect for one another. During their education students learn that academic knowledge is different from views or opinions; they can practice holding debates and dealing with differences.

    Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences wants to be a school that invites participation. An inclusive community of higher education, where students and lecturers can be who they are. Where students are acknowledged and where attention is paid to the learning process and the specific context of all students. Where the surroundings are comfortable and small-scale, and the available facilities are well taken care of.
