Nationale Studenten Enquête and Elsevier: Top rankings for LUC The Hague
The Nationale Studenten Enquête 2014, a study of around 73,000 students, has named Leiden University College (LUC) The Hague one of the best university college in the Netherlands.
Prof. dr. Jos Schaeken, dean of LUC The Hague, is proud of the results: “This is a fantastic achievement for a college that has yet to celebrate its first five years. I am tremendously proud of our students and staff. This top position also shows that we chose wisely in 2010 when we launched our unique, interdisciplinary Global Challenges programme within the Liberal Arts and Sciences model that has since been implemented at seven university colleges in the Netherlands. One can no longer imagine Dutch higher education without university colleges, and Leiden University, the Faculty Campus The Hague and the Municipality of The Hague should be very pleased to be home to one of the best university colleges of them all.”
In addition to giving LUC high marks in the open questions posed by the NSE, students spoke lovingly about their college: “I never regretted my choice of LUC, not for one second. What a terrific programme!”
Nationale Studenten Enquête
The NSE is a large-scale, national study that yearly invites nearly all students in higher education to voice their opinions about their programmes of study. LUC achieved an impressing total score: 4.5 on a scale from 1 to 5. The college ranked number one in the areas of programme content, general skills, lecturers, testing and assessment, and timetable.
In the 2014 Beste Studies edition of Elsevier, available on newsstands this week, LUC proudly took second place. The college ranked number one in three of the six assessment criteria (educational programme, programme structure, and teaching staff) – more top rankings than any other university college. The Elsevier results are based on the NSE findings in combination with research conducted by ResearchNed among professors.
