Protestant Theological University

MA Netherlands Amsterdam Groningen September 2017

The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is a university for theology based on a religious view of life, located in Amsterdam and Groningen. The PThU aims at profound and relevant theological education and research with regard to developments in faith, church and Christianity worldwide. Work in the university is inspired by its close association with the church and a fascination for what faith does with people – explicitly including the personal faith of its staff and s… [+] tudents. Committed type of theological practice The PThU stands for committed academic theological practice with particular responsibility for the Protestant tradition. The leading framework is the clerical and societal relevance of today, profound knowledge and elaboration of sources and respect for tradition. Education for the ministry of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands The Protestant Theological University has longstanding experience with education for the ministry. The PThU offers official education for the ministry, recognized by the Protestant Church in the Netherlands, for both congregational and pastoral care ministers. It also offers post-academic education to ministers and clerical workers. For more information on the Protestant Church in the Netherlands see Relation to the Protestant Church in the Netherlands There exists a mutual understanding between the PThU and the Protestant Church in the Netherlands (PCN). The PThU draws on the Christian faith in its work in the areas of education and research. Attending to the sources and history of the Christian faith, the study of the beliefs and confessions of the church and attending to learned faith and church praxis are all done in solidarity with the traditions that have united in the PCN. The PCN involves itself with the PThU by defining the requirements and objectives of the education programs and in the formation of those wishing to be accepted as pastors in the PCN. Administratively, this involvement is demonstrated by the Supervisory Council, which is charged with the supervision of the PThU Board under the oversight of and in accountability to the General Synod of the PCN. Commitment to society The PThU wishes to be a university committed to society. This is instanced by conferences, study-days and publications for a broad audience. Thus the PThU contributes from a Christian tradition to the societal discourse on faith, church and society. Some of these activities are initiated by the PThU itself, some by others. Established in 2007 The PThU has come into being after a merger of the official educations for the ministry of the Reformed and Lutheran traditions. When the PThU was established, a mono-faculty university management structure was opted for. The members of the Supervisory Board are appointed by the Synod of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands. This warrants the connection of the PThU with the church. Organisation Executive Board The Protestant Theological University (PThU) is run by an Executive Board, which is responsible for overseeing the preparation and implementation of the university’s education and research policies. In addition, the Board takes care of day to day tasks involved in the functioning of the university. The Executive Board is appointed by the Supervisory Council. This Council ensures that the Board abides by the obligations that apply to the university on the basis of legal and church rule in the exercise of its duties and powers. The Supervisory Council is appointed by the General Synod of the Protestant Church in the Netherlands. The Executive Board is assisted in its duties by the managing director, the director of education and the Advisory Council. PThU International Protestant theology is international by definition. Therefore internationalisation, understood as “the process of integrating an international, intercultural and/or global dimension into the goals, functions and delivery of higher education” is one of the key priorities of the university. The international, English-taught Master of Theology programme in Groningen, with students from Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania is a clear example of this effort to integrate an international and intercultural dimension into education by means of a real international classroom. But the PThU also seeks to facilitate true international experiences for Dutch students in Groningen ánd Amsterdam through student mobility programmes and the invitation of foreign guest lecturers. By developing sandwich PhDs and joint doctorate programmes the university also tries to further the internationalisation of its doctoral education. In the area of research, internationalisation for the PThU means active participation in international networks and conferences and publication in relevant international peer reviewed journals. More specifically the university has built up in recent years a strong network of internationally recognised partner institutions in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa. More intensive research cooperation is in place with strategic partners in South Africa, United States, Israel and several European countries. [-]

Hotelschool The Hague

Master Netherlands The Hague Amsterdam September 2017

Enter the doors of Hotelschool The Hague, and you enter one of the world’s most special universities. We are proud of the fact that Hotelschool The Hague is one of the last independent single sector Universities of Applied Sciences in The Netherlands. Hotelschool The Hague was founded and funded in 1929 by the hospitality industry to create a central place where industry partners could gain and share new insight, skills and knowledge. Since its foundation, t… [+] he Hotelschool has become an international school specialised in hospitality management offering a 4-year Bachelor’s degree in Hotel and Hospitality Management. This degree course is also available as the accelerated International Fast Track programme. Since the foundation more than 80 years ago the hotel school has become bigger, more internationally oriented and has professionalised immensely. But the original fundamentals stayed the same, like the dedicated focus on hospitality and the strong connection with the industry. Also the “core business” of the hotel school stayed the same; a centre where hospitality knowledge and skills are bundled, developed, researched, shared and transferred as realistic as possible in order to prepare young hospitality leadership talents for a successful career in the business. Hotelschool The Hague, at the heart of Hospitality. There is more to Hotelschool The Hague than meets the eye. You are welcome in our Hotels & Restaurants in The Hague and Amsterdam to experience our passion for hospitality.

Our Consultancy & Training division advises and trains hospitality business professionals, either in company or at our annual summer schools. The results from both divisions are quickly assimilated in our educational programmes so that our students learn from state of the art hospitality business cases; a continual programme of curriculum improvement. Governance In 2006 the General Assembly of the HBO Council created a governance code. Hotelschool The Hague has adopted this code. The code consists of, among others, rules for good governance. It also has a code of provisions and rules for the supervision and involvement of stakeholders in education and research. Statutes The statutes of the Stichting Hotelschool The Hague lay down the basic rules and provisions of the foundation. It describes the goals and the statutes of the school and the responsibilities and tasks of the Board of Directors and the Board of Trustees. Strategic vision Hotelschool The Hague will strengthen its ties with its hospitality students, employees, alumni and the industry. In the Strategic Vision 2012-2018 Hotelschool The Hague will focus on these core issues: - intensification of education - a stronger relationship with the industry - internationalisation Our Values Following a year of researching and consulting with our current students, faculty and management we recently introduced Hotelschool The Hague's new Values. It is a values-based ethical code, created by us for us. This means our values will be heart-felt not just head-stored, accentuating our identity and culture, our mission and vision, and not the least, our passion for the industry which needs leaders not only of high competence but also of excellent character. Our Values appeal to the individual's personal responsibility and moral competency, calling for all those in our community to make sound moral decisions based on values we can all identify with. To support the Values we have created a Manifesto for our students, faculty and management providing us all with a north star for our actions and behaviours. Our values are represented by the letters in HOSPITALITY: - H - We are Honest - O- We are Open - S - We are Sustainable - P - We are Professional - I - We are Integrity-Driven - T - We are Transparent - A - We are Ambassadors - L - We are Loyal - I - We are International - T - We are Trustworthy - Y - We are Yes-Minded [-]

At SLEM we do all this through research, teaching and applying new methods that are suitable for the future.

We teach our students to become competent global citizens who are engaged in evoking… [+] and making changes in our world and our society. We do this in a structural and realistic way, with a focus on global issues and sustainability. High student satisfaction For the fifth year in a row we have been selected a 'Top-rated' programme based on Student Satisfactory, low drop-out rates and expert evaluation by the composers of the selection guide for higher education (Keuzegids Hoger Onderwijs). For the third year in a row, Windesheim Honours College obtained a very high score in the national student survey (Nationale Studentenenquête), conducted by the independent website Our programme is also labeled ‘excellent’ by the NVAO, the Dutch independent accreditation organisation for Dutch and Belgian Higher Education. International staff Our lecturers are highly educated and have international work experience. This gives them and their lectures an extra dimension. They try to incorporate their knowledge and experience into their lectures as much as possible. They encourage you to be critical in class and join them in the discussions they have online and offline. An ongoing path towards Excellence Windesheim Honours College’s approach to excellence is based on the strength of a University of Applied Sciences education. The focus is on the profession, in this case a global project and change manager in a specified professional field. The BBA degree programme we offer, combines a strong focus on the development of practical and professional skills with the ability to apply these skills in a changing, complex and global professional reality. College graduates are trained to use and apply knowledge based on applied research in the development and design of professional products and services, contributing to the improvement of professional practices, methods and theories in a specified professional field. This way they become doers who think critically about what they do and why, and hence professionals with discernible added value on the (international) labour market. Real life experience We believe you can learn more through real life experience and from there construct your own knowledge. It is a problem-based and adaptive way of learning where we challenge you to integrate new knowledge to the existent knowledge you may already have. We do this using innovative procedures. Experiential learning You will gain knowledge and skills, and construct your own vision of the professional world in interaction with the environment during your learning process. We use different methods of instruction, such as problem based learning, experiential learning and Internships. At Windesheim Honours College experiential learning forms the backbone of the degree programme we offer. Experiential learning fosters critical thinking, and creates motivated and independent learners. The goal is to make you reach the highest order of learning. Educational concept Windesheim Honours College’s educational concept is strongly related to its mission and educational vision. The educational concept consists of three components: 1. The talented and motivated student Our education focuses on gifted and talented students with creativity and task commitment. We think it is crucial that our students are challenged to develop personal leadership through individual profiling in order to become independent career navigators. 2. The ‘College concept’: a small-scale and intensive educational setting with an international learning community Colleges are still a rare phenomenon in the Dutch context. Although the number of University Colleges is gradually growing, WHC is still the only Professional College in the Netherlands. WHC is a residential College. This enhances the close involvement between students and therefore the formation of a learning community. The international learning community is furthermore characterised by close involvement between lecturers and students and the engagement of both students and lecturers in socially relevant extra-curricular activities. 3. The way we teach Our way of teaching is based in the three pillars of honours education: community, academic skills and bounded freedom. - We create a learning community by working and co creating together - We take you an extra mile into your academic knowledge, understanding and skills; - We give you space for experimentation, risk taking, personal initiatives and pursuit of your individual interests.
