The AUAS bases the quality of its education on three factors:
The number of students who earn a degree within the agreed period (four years) has risen from 60% (2016) to 62% (2017).
Student satisfaction is measured annually in the Dutch National Student Survey, which is conducted among all universities and universities of applied sciences. The general satisfaction of AUAS students with regard to their degree programmes increased from 73.4% to 74% in 2017.
The position of graduates in the labour market is reflected by the HBO Monitor, an annual independent survey. Some 83% of AUAS graduates find paid employment within three months of graduation. Furthermore, 82% of graduates are employed at the university of applied sciences bachelor level.
Based on the above data, the AUAS considers the basic quality of its education to be in order. Nevertheless, we devote extra attention to education logistics to help improve student satisfaction and labour market success.
