As a future Electronic engineer you are able to work in teams. In other words: you are a real team-player. Moreover you need to understand how to use high-tech knowledge in real-time situations. That’s why theory classes are always supported by practical assignments. As a student you also search for additional knowledge and skills to improve your own development. This requires a high sense of responsibility, a high level of analytical thinking and leadership qualities. It goes without saying that your communication skills and level of English are very good. At secondary school your grades for mathematics and physics need to be very good. You need to spend around 40-45 hours per week on study activities.

You will also get a chance to get practical work experience through internships or do experiments in laboratories, depending on the field of study.

Teamwork: Holland has received international praise for its teaching style, which centres on students working together as a team and on self-study and self-discipline. The teacher will act as a facilitator and guide in the learning process.

Admission requirements

As a prospective bachelor student you must have a diploma of higher secondary education that is equivalent to Dutch standards. Some equivalent international diplomas are the senior high school diploma GCE, British GCE-A-levels or the French Baccalaureat. Nevertheless, since every country has its own school system we will check your diploma once we have received it from you. In this way we can compare it to the required Dutch standards. The required English level must be equal to IELTS 6.0, TOEFL 550/80 or other equivalent tests. Applicants whose mother tongue is English will be exempted from the English requirement.  

Open days

We organise several Open Days in each academic year. On these days you can visit the campus and see the facilities, meet lecturers and students and attend presentations about the study programmes.


It is not always easy for international students to find accommodation in Holland by themselves. Therefore, Fontys FTB  offers a service to provide students with assistance in securing suitable accommodation (i.e. a student room) for the first period of their studies at Fontys. Although Fontys does not have its own campus dorms, it has established cooperation with a number of different accommodations or housing agencies and landlords
