The Netherlands has a population of around 17,000,000 and a student population of around 329,000. Students come from all over the world to take advantage of the country’s excellent education system.
The Netherland has a robust economy with lots of national and international companies looking to take on graduates. International students can apply for a post-study Orientation Year residence permit, which allows them (and their partner/spouse) to live and work without restriction in the Netherlands for a year after their graduation.
Education in the Netherlands is much more cost-effective than other English-taught programmes in the UK or US, for example. Average tuition fees are about €2000 for students from the EU and around €10,000 for non-EU students. The Dutch education system is very highly regarded globally, so students will receive high-quality teaching and an internationally recognised degree with a lower price tag.
