The Keuzegids Universiteiten (Guide to Dutch Universities) is published annually by the Centre for Higher Education Information (CHOI; Centrum Hoger Onderwijs Informatie) and is intended for secondary school pupils and counsellors who want to find out more about higher education. The assessments in the Guide are based on student evaluations, the national degree programme choice database Studiekeuze123 and visitation reports. There is a separate Guide for Master’s degree programmes. It is published in February.
