That’s up about 7.3 percent
Translated by Thomas Ansell
As reported by the GIC, the number of new Hanze students is up to about 8,000 people, or about 7.3 percent more than the year before. According to the Hanze, this is because more Dutch high-schoolers have been awarded the necessary diploma to go to a Hogeschool and due to a lack of gap years take by school leavers due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
The rise in student numbers applies at both Bachelor and Master level, whilst the number of new International students is around the same as last year with about 1,000 incoming students. In total the number of students at the Hanzehogeschool is about 31,000.
Extra growth has come in courses on education, which is up by 42 percent. In the ‘PABO’ (primary education) course, numbers are up about 35 percent, and in the ‘ALO’ (physical education) section student numbers are up by about 70 percent.
