The Dutch education system features two types of institution of higher education: research universities and universities of applied sciences. UAS Leiden is a university of applied sciences.

 

We offer Bachelor's and Master's programmes, minors and (post-graduate) courses and we perform applied research in a variety of domains ranging from healthcare and social work to economics, and from technology to education. Our education is focused on competencies, offers freedom of choice and challenges students to realise their potential. We encourage and support students in developing their knowledge and skills so that they are well prepared for their future careers.

 

Applied research

UAS Leiden has associate professors (lectoren in Dutch). These associated professors occupy chairs, and are at the centre of a network referred to as a    kenniskring (or 'knowledge circle'). Our associate professors conduct applied research in a specific area of expertise and maintain contacts with the relevant branch of business or industry. The areas of expertise of our 12 associate professors are Anthroposophical Healthcare, Mental Healthcare, Inclusive Education, Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship, Innovative Molecular Diagnostics, Youth Care and Youth Policy, People with Chronic Illnesses, Talent Management and Future Research in ICT, Nature and Development Child, Professionalism and Productivity, and PR & Social Media.
