Tio University of Applied Sciences offers you the option of accelerated studying in a pleasant and safe environment. You are surrounded by motivated students and lecturers with extensive practical experience in their respective field.
Tio University of Applied Sciences offers both bachelor programmes and vocational training programmes. That means you get to study in small groups – circa eleven students per lecture, on average – and receive plenty of personal attention and guidance. As opposed to subsidised education, Tio offers students the opportunity to complete their studies in less time. Here is an overview of the various benefits of a private education, compared to one subsidised by the government:
Small-scale and personal education
Lecturers teach small groups and know their students by name. This makes personal guidance possible.
Lecturers stimulate you to bring out the best in yourself. You receive optimal supervision and guidance to master both theory and practice.
Tio offers accelerated studying: bachelor ‘s degrees in just three or four years and vocational training programmes in one or two years. So you have your degree faster, which allows you to start off your career sooner or you can continue studying for a master’s degree.
Lecturers from the industry
Lecturers use their experience in the industry to create links between the theoretical knowledge you acquire and its practical applications.
Every Tio study programme has been awarded top marks by the Higher Education Guide. Tio offers e.g. the best hotel school degree, the best stewardess, tourism and business degrees and the best Commercial Economics study programme! Tio wants to instil the same drive towards excellence in its students. On top of that, Tio has an honours programme for talented students who want to excel.
You are in your last or second-to-last year of your general secondary or pre-university education and you face an important choice: what will you be studying next? What do you want to be later? To help you make this major decision, we have asked some new Tio students how they reached their decision and why they chose Tio.

Study choice check
If you want to be sure that you are making the right choice, the Tio study choice check is perfect for you. To find out whether a study programme is right for you, you can sign up for a non-binding study choice check from Tio. This study choice check may consist of e.g. attending an open day or a trial study day, tagging along with a Tio student for a day, conducting a personal meeting or a financial consultation. Once you have been accepted at Tio, you may be called in for a non-binding meeting with your future study coach to discuss your study choice.
If your prior education does not tie in sufficiently with the study programme you wish to enrol in, an intake interview and an assessment will be scheduled. Based on the outcome of this interview and the assessment, you may be accepted into the study programme after all.
Even after 1 May
Tio’s study choice check is available even after 1 May. During the holiday periods and in the summer months, Tio is open every working day. You are hereby invited to stop by and experience Tio for yourself.
