Fontys provides education and research. As a broad-based university, we are the largest public knowledge institute in the southern Netherlands.
Fontys wants to be an innovation engine by linking its education and research to innovation processes within and outside the regions. Fontys has a large impact due to its education and research in almost all sectors of society.
Because of our representation in key positions in almost every sector, everyone who lives and works in the southern Netherlands comes into contact with Fontys, either directly or indirectly. We educate large groups of talented young adults in a great many professions. After their training, we meet them as colleagues, as internship coaches, as partners in cooperation and/or research or as professionals who wish to enrich or deepen their knowledge.
Our organization is in good order. Students and employees are satisfied and give us ‘seven minus’ and ‘seven-plus’ respectively. Fontys is financially healthy and the quality of our education is also in good order. The basic qualities that we demand of ourselves are sustainably anchored in the control and accompanying evaluation cycles. We regard ourselves as a knowledge and innovation partner of regions and professional fields.
Quality is the key feature
Fontys aims to be an educational institution that is ‘inspiring growth through support & challenges’ and to be an educational organization at which students can grow and learn to think more laterally, i.e. to ‘think bigger’.
Fontys aims to achieve these objectives through the provision of support and challenges to its students, staff and all relevant stakeholders.
The core objective is to promote an organization-wide mentality that will result in continuous attention for quality improvement in terms of education, content, and processes. Fontys focuses on Bachelor education and Master degree programmes financed by the Dutch government.
The education is organized well and provided in professional education environments. Fontys strives to achieve high quality, embedding its activities solidly within society, whilst achieving a leading position as a knowledge institution, both nationally and in its regional environments.
Quality is the key feature of the Fontys vision. Fontys strives to achieve a level of quality that will match that of any higher education institution in the European context.
