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 Arnhem Business School it’s even 1 in 2 students. Why do so many international students come here? 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.
