Viaa is a University of Applied Sciences, with a distinctive character. We attach great value to qualitatively good education, advice, and research. Viaa is a Christian University of Applied Sciences. This means we, as staff and students, want to live as Christians in our daily contact and our supervision. Jesus’ love is the example for all of us. We want to live following Him. Therefore our motto is: ‘When you believe in your work!’.
(see: Viaa’s Identity Document)
As a University of Applied Sciences, our programmes focus on the students’ professional training. Theory and research are applied to the future professional context. The introduction to the future professional practice by means of internships already starts in the first academic year.
Education at Viaa can be characterised by a wide variety of teaching methods, involving a lot of interaction between lecturer and students. We make a strong appeal to the students’ independence and their responsibility.
Viaa is a small-scale university. Consequently, there is a lot personal attention for our students.
