Fontys is a large and broad-based public university of applied sciences with 46,000 students, 5.000 employees and locations in ten cities in the south of the Netherlands (Noord-Brabant and Limburg). Fontys is a foundation, which is led by a three-member Executive Board. Oversight is in the hands of the seven-member Supervisory Board.

The 25 individual Fontys institutes collectively offer more than 100 courses – bachelor’s, master’s, associate degrees, as well as training programmes and courses for the business market – and carry out practice-based research, each in collaboration with and for its own professional field. The institutes and the Executive Board are supported by seven departments in the areas of finance, IT, marketing and communication, personnel and organisation, accommodation and facilities, education and research, and student services.
