Why Holland?

When talking about Education and thinking about Holland then you should know that there are various reasons to consider this country as a study destination.

First of all, Holland is the place where many Nobel Prize winners started their career. On top of that, Holland is the best place to be, for people passionate about research.

This quality is achieved through a national system of regulation and quality assurance. The Bachelor and Master programmes that meet the criteria, are officially recognized by the NVAO (Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders).

The Times Higher Education Supplement ranks 11 Dutch universities among the Top 200 in the world. This achievement is extra impressive when you consider Holland`s small size related to the rest of Europe.

In the same time, Holland has received international acclaim for its brand new, groundbreaking Problem Based Learning System.  The system focuses on a student centered pedagogy with the goal of helping the students develop flexible knowledge, effective problem solving skills, self-directed learning, effective collaboration skills and intrinsic motivation.
