Why study in the Netherlands?

The Netherlands has a large population of international students so you won’t feel alone. In fact, 1 in 10 students is an international student. At the International School of Business it’s even 1 in 2 students. Why do so many international students come here? Because the Netherlands has excellent, affordable higher education.
