NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences is strongly anchored in the Northern Netherlands region with a ‘global network approach’. At the locations and with their worldwide partner network, they are always looking for innovative methods and ways to connect the professional field, education and research. Students, teachers and researchers work in small teams on real-life issues and test their innovative ideas in practice. Education is in line with current developments in the professional field. Regional, national and international.

The future calls for enterprising and resourceful professionals who convert their knowledge into innovative solutions. Who look beyond their own field with a well-considered vision and who dare to act.

That is the strength of NHL Stenden; in an ever faster changing world, our people make the impossible possible.


During the Corona pandemic, the locations were open very limited and could not be used for open days and introductions. Many students therefore had to orientate themselves digitally on a new study program and obtain information in the same way about the location where they came for the study programme.


To show the students (and their parents) what their new workplace would look like, Virtutec has delivered a virtual tour. This tour shows (part of) the innovative environment of the Emmen locations. Direct links have been made to the various research groups and lectorates, supported by film material and websites. In this way a digital counterpart has been created, which means that NHL Stenden is also present in the digital world.

The tour itself can also be taken via the link below, if desired also in VR:
