Bronze medals for Delft master's programmes
This year‘s gold medals from weekly magazine EW (formerly Elsevier) go to 112 programmes in higher education. Their students are very satisfied with the content of their programmes, atmosphere, teachers and facilities. TU Delft picks up three bronze medals. The Master’s programmes Science Education & Communication, Life Science & Technology and Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering (in collaboration with Wageningen University & Research) are rated above average.
EW bases itself on the results of the National Student Survey by Studiekeuze123, in which 286 thousand students participated this year. Programmes receive a gold medal if they score clearly above average on at least eight questions. They have to outperform other programmes in the field of study in breadth.
Among universities, Wageningen is the top scorer: ten of its 49 assessed programmes were awarded gold. VU University Amsterdam and Utrecht University follow both with five programmes. Of the three other technical universities, the one in Twente has the highest proportion of gold medals: three out of 51. (HOP, HC)
