Netherlands Is Fast Becoming an Alluring Study Destination for Foreign Students

16 January, 2015

Study in Netherlands
A survey called Student Pulse, was carried out by involving over 2,000 overseas students from over eight countries, including China, Indonesia, Russia, Turkey, Brazil, India, Mexico and South Africa. The students from these nations were asked several questions about their interest in undergoing a higher education in Netherlands. This survey was conducted by the Dutch organization, Nuffic.

The survey result showed 76 percent of students wanted to complete their higher education, partly or wholly in the Netherlands. Some were interested in having a work experience there. The reasons which make Netherlands a hit among students from abroad are high standard of living, high quality of education and an open and internationally-adaptive society.

Many of those who took part in the survey were of the view that a diploma degree from a Dutch institution would pave the way for a brighter career prospect. Other interesting findings showed that one third of the surveyed students wanted to do an internship in Netherlands, 29 percent were of the view that they wanted to live in that nation even on completion of their studies while 81 percent assumed that their chances of staying back in Holland after graduation were quite good.

About 90 percent of those surveyed reckoned that scholarships and grants were necessary to support themselves financially. In a bid to attract more foreign students, the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science set apart 5 million Euros.
