School of Computer Science
The School of Computer Science provides both a Bachelor programme and a Master programme in computer science. Research and education focus on five main areas:
- information systems and business processes
- software technology
- distributed systems and communication technology
- mathematics and artificial intelligence
- human and social aspects of computing.
Most of our programmes aim strictly at people who have an adequate command of the Dutch language, because study materials are generally in Dutch. That is why there are a few difficulties foreign students might encounter at our university. Although more and more courses are in English, most professional or academic titles are out of reach for those without a good command of the Dutch language. All examinations, whether standard or computerised, are administered in the Netherlands, generally at one of the study or support centres of Open Universiteit.
For English speaking people in the Netherlands, who would like to start or continue an academic course or degree programme, the British Open University might be a better option. At the study centre of the Open Universiteit in the Netherlands in The Hague a local office of the British Open University offers service to their students.
