While windmills and wooden clogs may first come to mind when pondering the Netherlands, the land of tulips has much more to offer. As the first non-English speaking European country to offer study programs in English, Netherlands is known for its openness towards the international community. Its strategic location, excellent higher education and international learning environment, makes it an idyllic destination for students seeking a true multicultural academic experience. Higher education in Holland has a worldwide reputation for its rich quality. Dutch universities consistently earn top spots in international rankings based on everything from research, innovations to funding opportunities for scholars. Studying in the Netherlands provides outstanding value through a combination of low tuition, top-notch universities and a multicultural lifestyle that embraces international students. Dutch Higher Educational Institutions offer more than two thousand English taught study programs. In recent years the country has been a home for more than one hundred thousand students from all over the world and currently students constitute around thirteen percent of Holland’s total population. The most popular degree programs for international students are in engineering, management, economics, social sciences and languages. Types of Universities The main two types of universities in Holland are Research Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences. While research universities are mainly responsible for offering research oriented programs, universities of applied sciences offer programs focussing on practical applications of arts and sciences. The Netherlands has 13 research universities, 39 universities of applied sciences and 14 other institutions. The QS World University Rankings 2014-15 includes 13 universities in The Netherlands, all ranked within the world’s top 400 and an impressive six in the global top 100. Education in Holland is not free, but tuition fees are reasonable. The Dutch government is attempting to make Dutch higher education as accessible as possible to students and mid career professionals from other countries. In Holland, higher education is subsidized, which means that tuition fees can be kept relatively low, especially when compared with the United Kingdom and the United States. There are several possibilities for obtaining funding. After graduation at a research university or university of applied sciences in the Netherlands, foreign students do have the possibility to extend their stay for a period of one year, in the next block of 3 years, to search for a job as a highly skilled migrant. Nuffic Neso India, the official representative for promoting Dutch Higher Education Institutions in India, has a database that lists over 2100 international study programmes taught in English. This database can be accessed online on . Students can find more information on life and study in Holland at
