For universities of applied sciences Dutch: hogescholen - there are no general international rankings. But in Holland there are three national rankings for hogescholen: The Elsevier Ranking, Keuzegids Ranking and the Nationale Studenten Enquete (NSE).
Keuzegids is deducted and published by the Centrum Hoger Onderwijs Informatie (Higher Education Information Centre). Programmes are rated by universities of applied sciences (HBO) as well as universities. Considered are the perspective of students and that of the university. The ranking is essentially based on success key figures of the universities, expert assessments for the accreditation of the programmes as well as results of the National Student Survey (NSE).
