HZ University is located in the city of Vlissingen, along the beautiful Zeeland coastline in the Southwest of the Netherlands.

Its modules are oriented around providing students with personalised study programmes that are custom built and flexible in order for them to acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare them for the challenging career ahead.

With 7 Academic Faculties, HZ offers 26 English Bachelor programmes that are split into six semesters- each of which lasts 6 months, and two of which require students to carry out a work placement in a field relevant to their studies. The University only offers Bachelor programmes and is distinguished for its programmes in Chemistry, Water Management, Civil and Industrial Engineering, International Business and Management, and Vitality and Tourism Management. Other strengths of HZ University include that it is very easy for students to find internships for Water Management and Civil Engineering, since the University has developed collaborations with the government, and that it also has a high employment rate for Water Management, Civil Engineering and other related subjects.
From the moment students attend HZ University they are made to feel at home. With an active student community, welcoming staff, and numerous leisure activities and projects to be involved in- there is always something for students to do there.
