WHY STUDY IN HOLLAND?


8 reasons to study in Holland!

Did you know that 1 in 10 students in Holland is an international student? Holland has more than 90,000 international students and that number is increasing every year. So why should you study in Holland? 

1. There are 2,100 + programmes in English

Dutch universities offer the largest number of English-taught programmes in continental Europe. Also, 95% of the Dutch speak English, so it’s easy to communicate in daily life.

2. Get high quality education and value for your money

The quality of Dutch institutions is well-recognised. The tuition fees and cost of living are considerably lower than in English-speaking countries. Also, there are lots of scholarship opportunities.

3. Be part of an international community

Holland’s many international students come from more than 160 different countries. Dutch society is strongly connected to other cultures, the business community and the world. The Dutch are open-minded and direct, so it is easy to meet them and exchange ideas.

4. Develop valuable skills and be more successful

The Dutch teaching style is interactive and student-centred. Studying in Holland means developing your own opinion, an open mind and increasing your international orientation. You will develop valuable skills such as analysing, solving practical problems and creative thinking.

5. Live in one of the safest and happiest countries in the world

Holland is one of the safest countries in the world, according to the 2016 Global Peace index and belongs to the top 10 happiest countries in the world. Read more about the good Dutch standard of living in the OECD’s Better Life Index.

6. Have the rest of Europe at your doorstep

An international trip is just around the corner. In just three hours you can be in Paris. London and Berlin are just a five or six hour train ride away. Holland is the gateway to Europe!

7. Get plenty of international career opportunities

Holland is the 17th largest economy in the world. Some of the world’s biggest multinationals, including Philips, Heineken, KLM, Shell, ING and Unilever, are Dutch. Holland is a world leader in many areas of expertise, including agriculture, water management, art & design, logistics and sustainable energy.

8. Start a career in Holland after graduation 

The Dutch government wants to attract knowledge and retain talent. International graduates can therefore apply for a residence permit of one year to find a job, or start a business within three years of graduation.
