Seven University of Groningen Bachelor’s degree programmes have been awarded the ‘Top Degree Programme’ quality label by the Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities (Keuzegids) 2020, placing them among the top in Dutch academic education. We are very proud that our Liberal Arts and Sciences programme is one of them! Furthermore, the University of Groningen is in fourth place in the category best Broad-based General University.

The Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities 2020 has awarded the ‘Top Degree Programme’ label to Bachelor’s degree programmes that earned a total score of at least 76 points. Of 64 degree programmes around the country that were awarded this label, 7 belong to the University of Groningen.

Dean of University College Groningen (UCG), Hans van Ees, shared this message:

The University College Groningen is proud to announce that the scores demonstrate that the Liberal Arts and Sciences-programme of UCG can be labeled Top rated proramme for the fourth time in a row. On behalf of all UCG, the faculty board thanks the students for the confidence in and appreciation of the programme. In addition, the NSE scores indicate areas where further improvement of the result is possible, which is important feedback for UCG to continue working on the quality of its education. The information provided by students is really valuable in this respect and the faculty board invites all students to participate (again) in the upcoming NSE survey in 2020.


About the Dutch Higher Education Guide

The Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities 2020 was published on Wednesday 27 November. The guide shows off new statistics regarding study success, new expert and student assessments of all university Bachelor’s degree programmes and information about the feasibility of a degree programme and its language of instruction. The Dutch Higher Education Guide for Universities is published annually by the Centre for Higher Education Information (CHOI; Centrum Hoger Onderwijs Informatie) and is intended for school pupils and deans who want to inform themselves about university Bachelor’s degree programmes. The assessments provided in the guide are based on student evaluations (National Student Survey 2019), data from the national degree programme database Studiekeuze123 and visitation reports by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). There is a separate guide for Master’s degree programmes.
