Fontys is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands and offers a variety of bachelors and masters programmes in English. We have a larger number of international students than any other university in the Netherlands, with students of more than 80 nationalities from all over the world.

History

The name Fontys was given to this University of Applied Sciences on 1 September 1996. The name derives from the Latin word ‘fons’ which means ‘source’, a source of knowledge for students. Fontys is a merger of several Dutch Higher Education Institutes located in the south of the Netherlands. Some of these institutes were founded in the early 1900s and have a long and profound educational history.

Fontys offers suitable study programmes for every student. Our prospectus is multifaceted and varied: from full-time to part-time programmes, from Associate degrees to Master's degrees, and from minor's to honours programmes. We also offer education for working people, as well as bridging and career development programmes for intermediate & higher vocational education (MBO-HBO) and higher vocational education & university education (HBO-WO). 

Research

The Fontys Research Agenda forms an integral part of the Fontys Quality Agenda for education, whereby research has been positioned in such a way that it contributes to the continual improvement of the quality of education. Fontys opts to link all research to education.

Housing services

As most cities in the Netherlands, Eindhoven has a shortage in affordable student accommodation. This means that finding accommodation in Eindhoven can be difficult and time-consuming. It is very common to find accommodation through Facebook groups for rooms in Eindhoven and Tilburg.

Alternatively, if you are a new (first-year) student, Fontys International Office can help with finding accommodation for one year. After that year arranging accommodation is your own responsibility.

Library services

Library TF provides in a large number of (subject-specific) education tools that can be divided into a printed and a digital collection. The collections are compiled and maintained in consultation with the educational content experts from the three institutions.

There are a large number of computers in the Library. On these computers standard software is installed. 

Medical services

Everyone in the Netherlands must have insurance cover for medical expenses. The type of health insurance that you will need will depend on your personal situation.

In the Netherlands, the ‘huisarts’ (doctor, general practitioner, GP) provides full medical assistance in accordance with the standards designated for the practice of medicine by medical professionals in the Netherlands. 

Campus life

Our international English-taught bachelors and masters programmes are conducted at our campuses located in Eindhoven, Tilburg and Venlo. All campuses are equipped with excellent computer facilities, libraries and student restaurants. Wireless Internet is available throughout the campuses, enabling you to bring your laptop to Fontys and to work, study, search for information and check your e-mail wherever you happen to be at Fontys.
