Honourable third place
The Guide says the following about HZ:  “A wide range of study programmes can be found at HZ in Zeeland. You can study almost anything there, in study programmes that often have only one or two classes per year. Facilities are good and so are the contacts with the student. Study success is above average. However, the quality differs per programme. “The Selection Guide specifically mentions Social Work, Nursing (HBO-V) and Primary School Teacher as good study programmes.
