Going on Grand Tour means you will follow a part of your study at one of our International Branch Campuses, in South Africa, Qatar, Thailand or Bali. At each campus we work on a modular basis with our Problem Based Learning system. Our teachers and students make studying at one of the branch campuses truly an international experience! There is a whole range of elective modules to choose from for students in our bachelor programmes.

In addition to the Bachelor in International Teacher Education for Primary Schools (ITEPS) at the Meppel campus, Stenden offers 13 other Bachelor's degrees in English at Leeuwarden and Emmen campuses, and two Master’s degrees. Problem Based Learning is the cornerstone of our education.
