Study in Holland

Why study in Holland ?

There are many reasons why you should consider studying in Holland but ultimately the most important factors will be different for each and every one of you.

1. International work experience

Gaining international work experience is essential when looking to enter today’s job market.Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences recognize the importance of real-world experience. In fact, it is impossible to gain a degree from such a university without completing at least one work placement. This placement may be in the Netherlands, back in the UK or in a completely different country. Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences offer comprehensive support and advice when trying to arrange the best placement for you. Dutch research universities place a higher emphasis on the academic study but even here it is often possible to combine work experience with your studies and universities actively encourage this.

2.Personal attention and learning support

Dutch universities place a strong emphasis on good personal relations between staff and students. Most tutorials and seminars take place in small groups of around 15-30 students. Even the lecture theatres are rarely overcrowded. Additionally, students at Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences will work closely with their own personal study mentor. Your mentor will assist with any day-to-day issues you are having with your studies but will also help shape your pathway to graduation, ensuring you get the most out of your time at university.

3.Practical learning in addition to theoretical knowledge

Dutch universities include many practical elements in their degree courses. This emphasis on relevant experience is designed to prepare you for entry into the job market upon completion of your degree. The practical parts of your degree will be more pronounced in a University of Applied Sciences degree than at a Research University. During your studies, you will complete several practical tasks. You will work in small study groups with your fellow students, putting into practice the skills and theory you have learned in your lectures.
