In the Elsevier research in to the ‘Best study programmes 2019’ HAS University of Applied Sciences is in 6th place in the category ‘Specialist universities of applied sciences. Problems with carrying out the National Student Survey, under the responsibility of the Studiekeuze123 Foundation mean that for the first time since the first edition in 1994, this year’s survey does not include the current student assessments. A programme has been set up in order to rectify this, but the universities of applied sciences are not participating in it and so no student scores will be made available. As a result, Elsevier has used alternative information to assess the universities of applied sciences, namely different research carried out between 2014 and 2018.
