Study in Netherlands



We all are aware of the fact that studying abroad is a dream for every Indian student who aspires of doing great things in life. And also one needs the proper assistance of “exactly how” to study in foreign countries. To be more clear, many students lack assistance, in the sense which country to choose?, which college to study in?, which combination to opt for? And many such basic and common questions which tricks the mind of students. Today, education systems have evolved immensely, in different countries differently and this also is the case with Netherlands, which is known for its three-tier education system in higher studies that is, MBO, HBO and WO.


Netherlands is best known for its varied courses which are provided by the different universities and colleges in Netherlands which are University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University, Leiden University, University of Groningen and many more.

  • University of Amsterdam: University of Amsterdam provides with different courses of management, engineering, sciences and many more. It is mainly known for its public research courses. This University provides with courses such as Actuarial Science, Ancient Studies, Archaeology, Business Administration and many more.
  • Utrecht University: Like University of Amsterdam, Utrecht University is known for Studies in Research. It is also admired for alumni who are scholars and well-versed in their field of profession.
  • Leiden University: This University is popular for its broad space for exploration for students especially for international students. The social environment is student friendly and this provides with emotional and moral support to the student.


The Universities in Netherlands are open for students during two months in a year, namely, the first in-take happens during the month of September and the second in-take is conducted in the month of February. The September in-take is more student-friendly especially to the international students who aspire of getting into the top colleges of Netherlands. The in-take in the month of September is the main in-take which happens in Netherlands, but the second in-take or the winter in-take is conducted for the students who have missed the whole procedure of admissions, as other country’s follow different pattern of academic year. This is what makes studying in abroad different from studying in India. They are also completely student-friendly, because in Netherlands they are providing students with two opportunities to get into Universities and colleges. The deadline for applying in colleges and universities is 1st of April for autumn in-take. The deadline for admissions in the winter in-take is 15th of October. After applying, the universities and colleges in Netherlands hear back within four to six weeks. An academic year consists of two semesters, like we have in India. The duration of under-graduation and post-graduation is same as in India, three years for under-graduation, which will result in gaining a bachelor’s degree and 1 or 2 years for post-graduation, leading to gaining a master’s degree.


The first question that strikes into the minds of students for studying abroad is the question of “what documents are required for a student visa”. And we have the answer below:

1. Passport that is valid.

2. A form of application which is being completed.

3. Academic-related documents like scorecards which are the ultimate proof for completion of secondary and pre-university level education.

4. Proof of financial assets that support the students education (financially), which gives an assurance that the student will be able to afford his/her education and living costs.

5. Two passport size photographs

6. A complete study plan stating the previous education of the student.

7. Birth Certificate

8. Travel insurance policy document

9. Medical insurance policy document

10. Document of acceptance from any University or college.

11. Proof that the student has paid the visa application fees.


There are varied courses offered by universities and colleges in Netherlands. It can vary from science in one university/college to humanities in the other university/college. Some universities like University of Amsterdam provide with courses like, social and behavioural science, management courses, law, humanities, medical science and dentistry, politics, psychology, law and economics-PPLE. There are other courses as well that are offered in this college. Other colleges like Leiden University provides with courses like, Bachelors in Archaeology, Bachelor of African Studies, Bachelors of Art history, Bachelor of Astronomy, Bachelor of Bioinformatics and many more courses. This varied and broad structure of courses offers a student with variety of options which helps them to choose what they want rather than forcing them to study a particular course. Some universities also provide with courses like Sports Management, Law, Fashion, Philosophy, humanities in different varied subjects and varied courses of businesses and management studies. This itself gives out a reason for a student to study in a country like Netherlands.
