The Hanze is a good university with focusses on its practical approach to society. The staff is always helpful and willing to listen. Personally I am very active at my amazing student association AEGEE. Even in cases such as taking a gap year for a board term the school was supportive and helpful. Hanze lets you explore your own capabilities, they gently hold the brakes of your educational life, without harshly squeezing them for control. Also, Groningen is an incredible student city that lets you fully enjoy all the possibilities student life has to offer.
The university is nice. It’s a bit from the city center, but the bus is really fast. There are a lot of different studies and a lot of different people. The university is easy to go to from the Central Station. The bus goes from Central Station to the Hanzehogeschool almost every five minutes.
I rate Hanze University of Applied Sciences high because the studies are high quality, very practical. One semester lasting group projects require students to learn and understand the subjects they learn during the classes. PGroup projects are very practical and teach students how they can applied theory that they learnt in classes.
I really find the location of the university to be very serene and calm. It is close to the center around 2 km. The main building has a very good infrastructure. Classrooms are spacious and well equipped. The staff is friendly and cooperative. Professors are supportive.
The energy Barn located for renewable energy studies is top notch, with a lot of facilities for research and development.
The library could have been bigger, to allow more students to study. and timings could be extended.
I am currently finishing my Internship in Oulu , Finland – which I feel that the first 2 years in Hanze prepared me for qui’te well.
Prior to the internship I had very limited experience working in the field of game design.I had spent 2 years at the Hanze GDD course, the first being a quick introduction to 3 main areas of game design ; art,design and developing(programming). Whilst my second year was abit more useful in the sense that it taught to me to work to a brief and gave me more experience working in a time – I found that the 10 week period for projects was abit short.
I would love to be able to have more time and freedom to work in – however i do understand the strict time allocations of the first two years as they require the students to pick up alot of information really quickly.
In general the student teacher relationships are great and very easy going.
Bureaucracy arrangments/osiris/blackboard hand ins are a nightmare though.
I went to Hanzehogeschool Groningen on my Erasmus semester and I had the pleasure to enroll in their The Campaign Programme. Their exchange programmes are organized in order to have a complete and closed experience during one semester. This means that they offer a series of closed subjects regarding different topics. This is more rewarding as a student since you can specialize in a determined area of knowledge, but can be a bit difficult regarding the validation of subjects with your current University.
With The Campaign, the idea is to learn how to produce a communication campaign for an external client and produce it in the end. Usually, the project groups are international students from all over the world as well as Dutch students that decide to enroll that programme (all the classes are given in English, though). The mixture of students from different countries makes it very interesting and gives you the opportunity to learn about other cultures while you work together to achieve your final goal and present it to your client.
All the Erasmus paperwork was sorted out in a couple days and their teachers are very professional, down to earth and will always help you as much as they can, but always with the idea that we the students are adults and should try to solve our problems ourselves.
Definitely an amazing experience in a beautiful, student city full of cultural events and activities that I would gladly repeat.
