Event description

Description

With over 2000 UK and Irish students now registered on degree programmes, taught through English, in Dutch universities, the universities themselves are starting to notice.

On foot of a recent series successful OMG events, accross the country, organised by EUNiCAS, eight Dutch universities are back for more, They are visiting Belfast, to speak to prospective Istudents and their families. Importantly, students, currently studying in the Netherlands, will be available for a chat on the night.

So why the Netherlands? Guy Flouch of the Irish-based EUNiCAS application support service, comments that:

“Dutch Research Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences have a very high global reputation. Despite the fact that they are not particularly interested in your Leaving Cert points [or your grades, for postgraduate progrmmes] for entry, since they embrace the notion of you having a "right to an education". Tuition Fees which, at EUR2060 (2018), are already very low, can be recouped by way of a low-interest loan from the Dutch government. Add to that, the attractiveness of graduates from these institutions, to employers, in an increasingly globalised employment market, it is definitely worth thinking about”

Speaking at the event, in addition to representatives of the universities, and their students, will also be mulinational employers.Importantly, you will also discover the implications of Brexit and how you can avoid them.

Subject areas offered by these institutions, 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, Engineering, Hotel Management, Music, Fine Art, Design, Teaching and many more.
