Study programs in the Netherlands

Netherlands is one of the most welcoming countries in the world for international students. It offers more than 2,000 programs taught in English and even more programs in Dutch. In 2002 it introduced three cycles of higher education: bachelor, master and doctoral studies. However, in the past Netherlands had two distinctive types of higher education institutions: research universities and universities of applied science, with the former providing research-oriented education and the letter specializing in professional education. This distinction exists even today, but become less important, because both types of universities use the same three cycles system.

In some cases international students who are not eligible to study in the university of their choice may choose to enroll in a preparatory year.
