For the past two years, Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has been the fastest growing institute of higher education in the Stedendriehoek region where it is located, encompassing 7 municipalities and home to more than 413 000 people.
Today directors Peter Birdsall and Maggie Feng officially signed the Act that removes the Dutch name “Hogeschool” from Wittenborg, which is now called simply Wittenborg University. Wittenborg was established in Deventer in 1987 under the name Wittenborg College, and became a recognized University of Applied Sciences in 1996, under the Dutch name Hogeschool Wittenborg. From 2007. Wittenborg has only offered English spoken international degree programmes, to students from the Netherlands and from around the world.
Als er niet binnen afzienbare tijd enkele tientallen woonruimtes worden gevonden voor studenten, kan Hogeschool Wittenborg in Apeldoorn een aantal nieuwe studenten niet inschrijven voor het komende schooljaar.
