Wageningen has the Netherlands’ best university
Wageningen University & Research (WUR), partner Think East Netherlands, has been elected the best university in the Netherlands for the 17th consecutive time. This is revealed in the latest edition of the Keuzegids. The fact that the ranking changed its measuring method this year has not affected WUR’s leading position.
The ranking includes student reviews, study success rates and an updated list of all the university bachelors. Moreover, it contains information on the employment market and comparisons with other universities offering the same study programmes. The National Student Survey is a key item in the Keuzegids. The results of this survey contribute approximately 70 per cent towards the universities’ scores. This makes the Keuzegids a valuable guide for prospective students and their parents in assessing the quality of education at Dutch universities.

Nine Wageningen programmes are awarded the label top programme, indicating that students who follow the programme are extremely satisfied with their choice.
