As a professional, you have to deal with complex social issues. About healthcare, quality of life, social quality and loneliness. But also about parenting, inclusion, poverty and aging. Working on these issues requires groundbreaking and creative thinking and acting. That’s what we do here at the School of  Social Studies.

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. Why? Because the Netherlands has excellent, affordable higher education. It also has a thriving economy (18th in the world) so there are plenty of job opportunities. What’s more, the Dutch are open-minded and almost everyone speaks English.
