About universities in Netherlands

Higher education in the Netherlands follows a binary system and is delivered by two types of institutions: research universities (universiteiten or WO) and universities of professional education (hogescholen or HBO). WOs consist of general universities as well as universities specializing in engineering and agriculture, whereas HBOs have institutions that specifically specialize in a single field such as agriculture, fine and performing arts. Both types of universities in Netherlands can be either state funded or private, and both are authorized to award bachelor’s as well as master’s degrees. A bachelor’s degree course typically spans four years while a master’s degree in Netherlands may last one to two years.
 
Higher professional education in Netherlands:
 
Students who are interested in higher professional education in Netherlands need to enroll in the hogescholen or HBO. The hogescholen institutions are for students aged 17 and above.
 
Admission to these universities requires successful completion of a senior general secondary education (HAVO) certificate or an MBO middle-management or specialist training certificate or a pre-university education (VWO) certificate. Students must apply to the Central Applications and Placement Office stating their preference. HBO colleges in Netherlands can also opt to have a decentralized selection process but currently, they can allot not more than 50 percent of stipulated seats to this process.
 
State funded HBO universities in Netherlands offer courses in- Education, Economics, Behaviour & Society, Language & Culture, Engineering & Technology, Agriculture & Natural Environment, and Health Care. Private institutions may opt to offer only some and not all of the above mentioned courses.
 
A student completing a bachelor’s course from an HBO institution is qualified for admission to master’s programs at both HBO and general universities. Universities in Netherlands, however, may require the degree holder to complete a bridging program.
 
Universities in Netherlands:
 
Universities in Netherlands offer various degree courses. These courses are taught at 14 universities in Netherlands, including the Open University. The Universities of Technology at- Delft (TUD), Eindhoven (TUE) and Twente (UT) are three universities that exclusively focus on engineering and technology studies. Besides these, other approved institutions offer other courses like theological studies and other subjects like humanism. This program (called the WO bachelor’s program) spans 3 years.
Admission to universities in Netherlands requires a pre-university (VWO) school-leaving certificate or an HBO qualification or HBO propaedeutic certificate. Courses at universities in Netherlands primarily have an academic focus and are aimed at developing analytical and research capabilities in the attending students.
 
All students of an accredited full-time course, who satisfy the necessary conditions, are entitled to receiving financial assistance. Assistance is usually an allowance towards expenses such as living costs, books, study materials, tuition and travel. Financial assistance may include a basic grant, a supplementary grant and an interest-bearing loan and is, usually, performance-related. Besides financial aid, the government requires higher education colleges in Netherlands to provide vocational and research training guidance.
 
Post graduate education in Netherlands
 
Graduates of higher education universities in Netherlands, who are interested in a doctoral degree, can apply for posts such as research assistants (AIOs), research students (OIO) or grant-funded PhD students. AIOs and OIOs are appointed temporarily by universities and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) respectively. They conduct academic research and receive training that leads them to become full-fledged researchers or design engineers. PhD students receive a four-year grant for their four-year research training which concludes in a presentation of their thesis.
