Event description
A fantastic opportunity to find out about studying in the Netherlands, to meet Dutch universities and Irish students studying there

About this event

With nearly 2000 Irish students now registered on undergraduate and Masters degree programmes, taught through English, in Dutch universities, the universities come regularly to Ireland, to meet prospective Irish students and their families. Importantly, Irish students, currently studying in the Netherlands, will be available for a chat on the night. This year, we are meeting you on-line as the event moves to a webinar format. (Following the success of our most recent OMG event - all 500 tickets booked - it is suggested that you dont leave your booking too late.)

Launched by the Dutch Ambassador, Drs Adriaan Palm, speakers will outline the benefits of a Dutch education, including

  • an admission procedure that is not based on points or grades
  • low costs (at both undergraduate and Masters level)
  • generous student finance
  • an teaching/learning style that encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning
  • and, importantly, an excellent grounding for the globalised employment markets of the 21st century.

Of course, the stars at these events are Irish students already studying in the Netherlands, who share their experiences and challenges. They are the real experts!

Subject areas offered by participating universities, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level, include International Law, Psychology, Physiotherapy, Business, Game Design, Medicine, Public Health, Pharmacy, Biomedicine, International Relations/European Studies, Languages, Natural Sciences, Computer Science, Data Science, Engineering, Hotel Management, Music, Fine Art, Design, Teaching and many more.

Participating universities include:

  • Fontys UAS
  • Hanze UAS
  • Rotterdam Business School
  • NHL Stenden UAS
  • Radboud U.
  • U. Groningen
