Structure, Internship, Business Culture, Studytrip

How our education is structured

Two parts in a college year

Every full-time college year consists of a lecture period and an internship period. In the part-time program there is one lecture day a week. During the other days, the student works as part of the internship.

How our lecture days are structured

During a lecture day 1 unit is always central throughout the whole day, for example the unit ‘Management Accounting’. This way we can go into depth.

For full-time students, in the morning we focus on the new theory (Think) working college (theory combined with small exercises). In the afternoon we put all theory into practice by making assignments, projects work (Act) supported by the lecturer. We finish with a ‘end-of-day-test (EDT). This way you as well as the Lecturer gets feedback on the individual learning processes. If you work hard, work will be finished at the end of the day and you are free to relax, do sports etc in the evening. At the end of the unit there will be an exam training. This way you are well prepared for the internship (Grow).

For part-time students, the focus during the lecture day is mostly on the theory since the rest of the week is already in practice during work / internship. Instead of the EDT, there is a kick-off-test.

Online students do not take lecturers but have limited lecture support.

The unit assignment and assessment

At the end of the BTEC unit there will be a theoretical exam. Next you will receive an assignment brief. Here you apply the theory into practice. You will draw your own conclusions and formulate advice with a critical eye. You submit a concept, and you receive feedback from the lecturer. Next you hand in the final version. There always is a presentation part within the assignment.

Internship: now for real

The internship is an important part of our education: learning on the job. Again we say THINK – ACT – GROW. You work on clearly defined assignments (BTEC3), a business project (BTEC4) or a research project (BTEC5 and TOP-up).

You can do your Internship with an international working company in The Netherlands or abroad.

Preparing for Business Culture

Time is time, a deal is a deal. These are the primary rules at Kronenburgh.

We see the theoretical lectures as a meeting within the business community (mobile phones are switched off). The chairman (the lecturer) has the floor and expects a contribution from all participants (the students) during the meeting.

The practicum is the moment of the day where you work and learn as an individual or in groups. You deliver quality when performing the tasks that have been assigned to you. If necessary, you seek collaboration with other employees (students) and look for the feedback from your team leader (the lecturer). You receive feedback on the quality of your work every day (end-of-day test / kick-off test), but you also receive a regular review after finishing a job (the unit assessment).

Thursday is business suit day (for full-time students) where we finish the day at Plein in The Hague. Also, during business visits, if we welcome external speakers and during assessment presentations, we all wear a business suit.

Study trip: building further

For many students, the study trip in the first year, is one of the highlights of the program. The theme is “Doing business abroad”. We visit (Dutch) entrepreneurs: What are their experiences being an entrepreneur in another country?

Students also appreciate the study trip of course because they gain new joint experiences, for example during the “cultural program” which also includes exploring the city in the evening hours.
