Our profiling and performance agreements

In this section, we will provide an overview of the profiling and performance agreements that The Hague University of Applied Sciences made with the government on 3 November 2012: agreements about the quality of education and study success, study programmes, education differentiation, research and valorization / priority areas. The various agreements have been set out in the integral document entitled Profiling and performance agreements for The Hague University of Applied Sciences1. In this document, we described our ambitions in the form of the future profile. The same integral approach has been adopted in this annual report. In this part of the report, we will look explicitly at the results that we have achieved in relation to the agreements made. Reference will also be made to relevant passages in the annual documents.

The proposed strengthening of the three core qualities of The Hague University of Applied Sciences will play an important role when realising the profiling and performance agreements made. The core qualities are as follows: a stable, stimulating learning, working and research environment, at the heart of society and for a very diverse student population:

  • International orientation;
  • Partner to innovation in the professional environment.

The education framework for Bachelor degree programmes was adopted on the basis of these core qualities at the end of 2012 (see ' Educational framework'). This educational framework has been in use at The Hague University of Applied Sciences since the 2013-2014 academic year. The progress achieved in relation to these three core qualities is set out on the pages indicated below:

  • on ‘ ICT in education’, on ‘ Educational framework’, and on ‘ Our research’. On the pages mentioned above, we present the progress that The Hague University of Applied Sciences has achieved in the year under review and also set out what we have done to put in place a stable, stimulating learning, working and research environment.
  • on ‘International programmes’, and ‘ Internationalisation’. These pages contain information about international programmes and internationalisation policy. Emphasis is placed on international curricula, exchanges and international contacts.
  • On ‘ Our research’, and ‘ Our place in society’, you will read about the place of The Hague University of Applied Sciences in society and specifically about our role as a partner to innovation in the professional environment.

The progress achieved for the subjects on which agreements have been made has been described below:

  • Education quality and study success;
  • Study programmes;
