The academic Bachelor of Science Leisure Studies is a separate programme within NHTV’s Academy for Leisure with its own management. The core team not only teaches on the programme, but also conducts substantial research which is financed by third parties. Most of the lecturers hold, or are working on, a PhD.

Cooperation with Tilburg University

To be more effective, efficient, creative and decisive, NHTV and Tilburg University and several institutes have decided to combine forces on leisure research into a communal Centre for Knowledge called CELTH (Centre of Expertise leisure, tourism & hospitality).
