Six VU Bachelor programmes awarded 'Top programme'

24 November 2022
Six Bachelor’s degree programmes at VU Amsterdam have been given the 'Top Programme' quality seal according to the Keuzegids (Choice Guide) 2023, published today. In the guide, Bachelor students annually rate their programmes on content, teachers, assessment, preparation, career and atmosphere.

In this year's list of broad classical universities in the Netherlands, VU Amsterdam ranks fourth in the Choice Guide. VU Amsterdam receives the same score as last year with good ratings for earth and environment.

Earth Sciences and Biology
VU bachelor students Earth Sciences and Biology once again give their programmes very high ratings, earning them the Top Programme designation. Earth Sciences at VU receives 89 points, putting the programme at the top of the rankings. Biology receives 86 points, which also puts it in first place among biology bachelors at Dutch universities.

Sociology newcomer as Top Programme
The Bachelor’s programmes Greek and Latin Language and Culture, Medicine and Joint degree Liberal Arts & Sciences also prolong their title as 'Top Programme'. The Bachelor of Sociology is the newcomer on the list and receives the 'Top Programme' quality mark this year for the first time since the Keuzegids was redesigned.

Crown on the work
"I am immensely proud of this result. As a university, we work hard at our education and research to create a better world and train our students to build a sustainable future. It is great to see that we are again well rated this year by students of programmes in the field of sustainability. A wonderful crown on the hard work of involved teachers and support staff", says rector magnificus Jeroen Geurts.

Since 2021, there has been a new survey design and the assessment themes are different from previous years, making the new rankings of the best-scoring universities not comparable with the results of the 2021 Keuzegids. The Keuzegids Bachelors is compiled annually by the Centre for Higher Education Information and compares all accredited Bachelor's programmes at Dutch universities. The assessments in the guide are compiled in part from student opinions and accreditation data using information from the National Student Survey. These assessments help prospective students make an informed choice of their programme.
