‘Good morning professor’ will still be a common greeting at the university in 2025. The best researchers will be teaching and remain in close contact with students. Lectures will be smaller in scale and more intensive. Students will be given more individual feedback and greater supervision, provided by a greater number of lecturers.
It is 2015. The Dutch universities are considering their strategic choices for the future. They have formulated a shared vision for the next ten years to ensure that the students and lecturers of 2025 will find themselves in an academic environment which has evolved to a new modern state. The vision which was presented today reflects the discussions about the future strategy which the universities have recently held with students, staff and other stakeholders. This future is not the same for all universities. The diversity between programmes, disciplines and ambitions is great. The universities therefore also pursue their own institution-specific agenda.
