Welcome to the international information page of Communication & Multimedia Design (CMD) from NHLStenden University of Applied Sciences.

On this page (and its links) you'll find all the information you need about your study at CMD as an exchange student or as a not Dutch-speaking student.
Since 2022 we have also an international program, totally in English and focused on internationalization. More info can be found here:
International Track

Also, exchange teachers or people who are interested in our educational system can find some information on this page.
Almost all the CMD minors are open to exchange students since they are in English as soon as one foreign student joins the minor. However, the minors Art 'n' Sound and BAD are ALWAYS in English and some minors are less suitable or are open only one semester per year for exchange students. For more information about the different minors, you can approach the minor owners of each minor, or the CMD coordinator internationalization Protected email address.
