Fontys is the largest exclusive university of applied sciences in the south of the Netherlands. Our mission: to provide inspiring, challenging and outstanding higher vocational education and to conduct practical research that is truly meaningful to society. Our education, and the research we carry out, is directly in line with current and future demands and needs of our students, the professional arena and (regional) society. Together with our partners, we want to formulate the questions of the future, put them on the agenda, pursue them and where possible, provide a solution.
Fontys is a foundation. The Executive Board, under the Supervisory Board is the unit responsible for results. Education and research are provided by our 28 institutes, each within its own market segment. Support activities such as marketing and communication, personnel & organisation, student facilities and IT are incorporated into seven services.
