This section has been written with university-level students in mind. It describes the types of university – research-oriented ‘traditional’ universities and ‘universities of applied sciences’ – as well as the international programs and courses available in the Netherlands. Here you will also find information on qualifications for entering a university program, the credit system and the type of degree students obtain. Next, this second part goes into student life in the Netherlands; eating out, socializing, sports, as well as finding suitable housing, a job on the side and arranging a student grant.
