As you might have heard, there are now over 1000 Irish students registered on degree programmes, taught through English, in Dutch universities, and this total includes an increasing number of students enrolling in programmes at UAS. These universities are popular because are more practical employment-focused institutions than the more academic research universities, and students appreciate a more practical, hands-on style of learning, including one or two internships.
They offer degrees in areas such as:
Dutch universities don’t select for entry, based on Leaving Cert points. In the Netherlands, you have a right to an education if you have the minimum entry requirements (EITHER 6 passes at LC, inc 2 x H4 OR a relevant QQI Level 5). Some 90% of programmes don’t even have a selection procedure: you make the minimum entry requirements, and you are in. Even for those with a selection procedure, grades are rarely a selection criteria. There is even an entry route for students, over 21, who don’t have formal entry requirements.
Tuition Fees which, at EUR2083, are already very low, can be recouped by way of an interest-free loan from the Dutch government. 15 years to repay, after you graduate. Not only can students take their SUSI Grant with them but there is further financial support from the Dutch government, though support towards Living Expenses.
Dublin Open Day is approaching – 2 Scholarships await you
Dublin Open day is just around the corner, April 14th 2019.
All students and their families will be able to attend our Open Day event and visit our University kiosks to hear existing students’ personal and study experiences from each university in each country. A presentation will also be given by our SME representative explaining the advantages of studying abroad. Because of the high demand, a special chapter of our presentation will be dedicated to the 4 year graduate entry. Following Dr Anil Sachdev, a graduate from a University in Romania will share his study journey and career experience.
Our presentation will conclude with a Q&A session and a lucky draw where two students will win a 50% scholarship each from one of our partner Universities for the whole duration of their studies.
After the presentation, the SME Team and University students will be ready to answer more queries on a personal basis.
