The bachelor programme in Econometrics Erasmus School of Economics (ESE) has topped the league table of Keuzegids Universiteiten 2013, which is published by the Centre for Higher Education Information (CHOI).
Furthermore, Erasmus University Rotterdam figures amongst the top universities in the Netherlands, with its Business Administration and Psychology programmes in Rotterdam also achieving first place. Keuzegids Universiteiten 2013 reviews and assesses university programmes each year, and is therefore a “consumer guide” for university education.
The Keuzegids league table compares the bachelor programmes offered by universities in the Netherlands, on the basis of the opinions of students and experts, and ranks them according to their category. Students give their views on course content, the quality of lecturers, academic development, practical focus, workload, availability of information and facilities.
The editors of the Keuzegids have compiled the league table on the basis of the 2012 results of the National Student Survey (NSE). When only a small sample of students is available for a given programme, the results of the 2012 and 2010 surveys are both included. The expert appraisals are based on the reports and accreditation decisions released of the NVAO, the official accreditation body in the Netherlands and Flanders. Information drawn from the Central Registry for Higher Education Programmes (CROHO), and research results drawn from the 2011 WO-Monitor (University Education Monitor) by the VSNU/IVA university associations, is also used.
