Double-Accredited Programmes and Ranking

Double Accredited ProgrammesRanking - rankings of universities of applied sciences

Universities of Applied Sciences (UAS) are not included in worldwide university rankings, which are largely based on research journal publications. The Netherlands has a binary higher education system, and unlike, for instance, the UK, it differentiates between ‘pure research’ universities, and ‘applied science’ universities, such as Wittenborg. Although UAS institutes often carry out research, this is not on the scale or focus that research universities do - hence the exclusion from world rankings.
