Sixth Formers will learn about the benefits of studying in the Netherlands; with low tuition fees, good transport links and the chance to experience its culture, proving increasingly attractive to UK students.
A representative of a consortium of universities in the Netherlands will explain more about the lifestyle, financial commitment and application process during a talk to Year 12 students on Thursday 2nd May in the Weston Theatre. Their parents and guardians will also be invited to a similar presentation from 19:00 that evening.
Teacher Mr Witt said: ‘This is a relatively new but rapidly-increasing pathway for British students to take; one of the main attractions, apart from the chance to spend time abroad and the enhanced employment prospects which that can bring, is that the tuition fees at Dutch universities are very much lower than for British higher education. Study in the Netherlands is becoming especially appealing to British students as the language used for most university courses there is English. Also as the Netherlands is an EU country, there is no issue surrounding student visas. As a result 15 of the best-known Dutch universities, including Amsterdam, Maastricht, the Hague and Rotterdam, are promoting their courses here.’
