Fontys: high degree of art and creativity
Journalist, visual artist, teacher, dancer, sports economist, musician, communications expert; Fontys in Tilburg offers a colourful palette of educational opportunities.
my daughter Sanne studied at Tilburg.
for students: Surfing the web to take a peek at what's going on in Tilburg? After all, you want to get more out of your time at University or College... You want to have some fun, too, and live decently.
The proportion of creative subjects is high. Consequently, the atmosphere is different to that at other Schools of Higher Vocational Education. This year, Fontys is even offering rock music as a subject at the only Rock Academy in Europe.
Fontys Colleges is the largest teaching organization for Higher Vocational Education in the Netherlands with courses in economics, education, health care, art, technology, and community care. The varied Fontys educational courses fit in perfectly with the new image of Tilburg. The modern industrial city is not only concerned with employment and industry, but also with well-being and culture. Fontys has splendid academies in these fields, such as the Academy of Visual Arts, the Brabant Conservatoire, the Fontys Dance Academy, The Academy of Architecture and Urban Development, the Academy of Creative Arts, and the Academy of Journalism and Information.
If you hear people saying something that sounds like "how do", they're not asking how you're doing, they're just saying goodbye. Spelled '"houdoe", this is the common word when saying goodbye in the provice of Noord-Brabant. Where it comes from? I don't know.
