Top International Universities in the Netherlands

The Netherlands gets its name from the fact that around a quarter of this small northwestern European nation lies below sea level. Beyond its traditional associations (think windmills, tulips and clogs), it is one of the most developed and wealthy nations in the world, with a largely urban population. One of the most densely populated countries in Europe, it’s known for its tolerant and liberal ethos, and boasts a wealth of great student cities – none of which are more than a bicycle ride (the nation’s preferred mode of transport) away from some picturesque countryside.

The Netherlands is home to one of the world’s oldest and most highly respected systems of higher education, dating back to the 16th century. The QS World University Rankings® 2019 includes 13 universities in the Netherlands, all ranked within the world's top 350, and an impressive seven of these are within the global top 150. The nation’s highest-ranking institution is Delft University of Technology at 52nd in the world, with the University of Amsterdam and Eindhoven University of Technology not too far behind, at 57th and 99th respectively.

Combine this high quality with relatively favourable tuition for  the national students. the tuition for  international student is unfavourable  but plenty of English language courses (the Dutch are generally known for their fluency in English as a second language) and you can begin to see why the Netherlands is one of continental Europe’s most popular choices for international study despite the exorbitant fee.

Other Dutch universities ranked among the world’s top 350 include: Erasmus University RotterdamWageningen UniversityMaastricht UniversityVU University AmsterdamRadboud University Nijmegen, the University of Twente and Tilburg University .   Please drop your reaction and your thought about best university in the world.
