Learn how to make your work environment more creative. To devise a more constructive, creative learning environment. Practice in a real-world setting during your work placement. Add your own “flavor” to your work. Have fun. And reach new depths.

The program in a nutshell

Your schedule for classes and workshops is published before the start of the exchange program. In addition to classes, you go on excursions. Present your work to the class and your lecturers. Work on practical group assignments.

You also participate in extra activities. To really test yourself on how far you’ve come. Finally, you complete a work placement assignment. Your chance for practical, hands-on experience. To put to use what you’ve learned.

Students as partners

Dutch way of learning

The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.

What about credits and grading?

At HAN we use the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, or ECTS. It’s the standard credit system used in higher education across Europe. How does it work? One credit = 28 hours of study. Think of contact hours. Time spent working on assignments. Preparing for exams.

One semester = 30 credits = 840 hours of study. To earn credits, you need to pass your exams. What counts as a pass? A grade of at least 5.5.
