Are you going to develop an interactive map about the impact of native exotics in our country, or design an app that calculates the shortest route to a charging station for electric cars? These are some examples of what you can expect to be doing in the bachelor programme Applied Geo-Information Science. This bachelore programme puts you in a position to provide insight into spatial challenges related to current topics, such as urbanisation, flooding and biodiversity, by analysing and monitoring geographical and other data. You use this method to convert data into information, and you develop tools like apps, infographics, dashboards and other online and offline applications that help users find answers to current social issues. In other words, you help improve our world.


This is a Dutch-taught programme. Students must therefore be sufficient in the Dutch language to enroll. Read the admission requirements on this page for more information.


About the programme

At Applied Geo-Information Science, you’ll explore the world of virtual and augmented reality for four years. You will be performing data analysis and data visualisation, for instance in infographics. And you will be taught a solid dose of geography. You will learn how to design information about place and time in an enticing and creative way, using new media such as smartphones, tablets and apps. You can do so for instance in the Geo Lab, where you will be working with the latest hardware and software on spatial solutions.

Be prepared

Admission Requirements

International students can apply for the Dutch-taught programmes if they have completed at least 6 years of secondary school and their diploma is an equivalent of the Dutch HAVO diploma. Once we have received your application, the level of your high school diploma will be evaluated by the International Office and the study advisor of the programme of your choice.

  • NT2-certificate Dutch


  • Proof that you have followed education in Dutch until 3 HAVO / 3 VWO
Ready for the future

Job prospects

What could be your job after finishing Applied Geo-Information Science? For example:  

  • Geo Expert
  • Intermediary
  • Policy Support Adviser
  • Project Leader BAG ('Basic Registration Addresses and Buildings’)
  • GIS specialist
  • Augmented Reality Service Manager
  • Graphic Adviser/Designer
  • New Media Specialist
  • Trendwatcher

Besides the jobs mentioned above, students and professionals are involved in a field of expertise which is still being developed. It could be that because of that new demand and positions arise. These new positions are in the future and therefore still unknown, but are most definite within reach of Applied Geo-Information Science students.

Where could you work? For example:

  • Authorities (Municipalities, Province, Land Registry, Government Service for Land)
  • Consultancies (Geodan, Arcadis, Grontmij, Kragten, Taken, Geon)
  • Infrastructure Companies/Transport Companies (Prorail, BAM, Heijmans)
  • Geo Companies (ESRI)
