The Netherlands, or less formally Holland, was the first non-English speaking country to offer courses and degrees in English back in the 1950’s. This experience along with a unique teaching approach involving more teamwork and problem-solving compared to other countries has helped Holland become one of the leading alternative destinations after studying in the UK, Australia and the USA.
The Netherlands (Holland) is in North-west Europe across the sea from the UK and with borders to Belgium and Germany. It is easy to visit other countries during your studies as the country offers extensive transport links by airplane, train and bus into most European countries and almost everyone in the country speaks fluent English as well as their native Dutch language. You will also find the Dutch people very welcoming and happy to help you on your travels.
Education in the Netherlands is intensive and whilst in some circumstances you may be able to complete some part-time work you should expect to commit most of your time to your studies.
