Attend the ‘i am not a tourist’ Expat Fair for Internationals to learn everything you need to know about education in the Netherlands, from the education system to language courses.

Are you confused over which school to send your children to here and want to learn more about public and international schools? Or perhaps you are looking to get a Dutch diploma, but don’t know which of the colleges in the Netherlands would be best for you? Or you are curious about Dutch language classes and would like to attend a quick workshop?

This brief guide on how to study in the Netherlands explains why the Expat Fair for Internationals (Sunday 7 October 2018) should be your first port of call for information about education in the Netherlands.

Universities in the Netherlands

Expats looking to study in the Netherlands will find a wide range of Dutch universities and educational institutions offering international degree programmes. Many of the universities in Holland offer undergraduate and post-graduate degrees in English. 

Universities and educational centres such as Webster Leiden Campus and Regina Coeli Language School, will be present at the Expat Fair for Internationals in Amsterdam to answer your questions about enrolment, fees and more. Don't miss the opportunity to test the water before registering for a course, international school or applying to take a Dutch diploma.

Schools in the Netherlands

The OECD international rankings for school systems sets the Netherlands as one of the highest in performance, annually. The Dutch educational system is well balanced and requires children to attend primary school from the age of 4, before transferring to secondary school after 8 years. There are several different schools to choose from including:

  • Public (openbaar) schools
  • Private schools
  • International schools
  • Special schools
