About 264,000 Dutch universitary students have judged their degree programme and university according to the facilities, programme set-up, quality of teaching and lecturers, assessments and exams and internal organization and communication.
In addition, around 2,000 professors were asked which university programmes in their field they considered to be the best (excluding their own programme). The Bachelor's programmes in Chemistry, Theology and Philosophy taught in Groningen came out on top.
