BUas’ campus is located a short walk away from the city center of Breda, encircled by trees, walkways, sports fields and several renovated modern structures, the campus brings a charming and relaxed atmosphere to students. BUas key values of their campus are “transparency & openness, connecting people, sustainability, togetherness and using technology and assets in the most efficient method possible. 


Breda is a historic city that gives its inhabitants an illustrious combination of historic attractions and lively modern activities. Despite Breda’s historical significance, the city has been molded by large international companies, start-ups and shops that are open seven days a week. 

Breda University is internationally accredited by the European Consortium for Accreditation in higher education (ECA) with the Certificate for Quality in Program Internationalization for its Hotel and Tourism Management programs. BU’s Hotel and Tourism programs are also accredited by the International Center of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE), the UNWTO Tedqual certification system and the World Leisure Organization (WLO). 

BUas offers master’s programs at academic (‘wo’) and professional (‘hbo’) levels in the areas of Leisure & Events, Games, Logistics, Media, Tourism, and Imagineering. The Master of Science Leisure & Tourism Studies challenges studies to view the value of leisure and tourism in an ever-changing society from different perspectives. The course is centered around a multidisciplinary approach, essentially building on the knowledge and expertise from various disciplines. 


The Masters in Imagineering aims to equip students with the expertise to innovate, participate and lead processes of collaboration and creativity. The program focuses on “designing strategic narratives through engaging people in a creative manner”. 

BU offers 4 different master’s programs scholarships: StuNed Scholarships; VSBfonds Scholarship; LPDP Scholarship; and the Colfuturo Scholarship-Loan Program. The StuNed Scholarship focuses on mid-career professionals and aims to contribute to the development of Indonesia as part of their bilateral cooperation. 


The VSBfonds Scholarship is awarded to a few Dutch students annually and serves as financial aid for international study. The scholarship is worth €7,000 – €10,000 and enables students to travel abroad and complete a Master’s degree or perform research after their graduation in the Netherlands.
