DUTCH HIGHTER EUDUCATION SYSTEM

 About Dutch Universities

There are two main kinds of universities in the Netherlands: research universities and universities of applied sciences (hogescholen in Dutch). Research universities offer more academically rigorous education that focuses on specific subjects. Universities of Applied Sciences offer profession-orientated programmes that are designed for students who are looking to enter a particular career upon graduation. In addition to the two main public university types, you can also find a limited number of private universities in the Netherlands. These typically specialise in particular areas such as hospitality and tourism or business and charge higher fees than other Dutch universities.

a. Research Universities

Undergraduate degrees at Research Universities typically take three years to complete and usually do not include work experience. There are 13 Research Universities in the Netherlands but some do not teach bachelor degrees in the English language. Currently, only the University of Groningen and Maastricht University offer courses in English in more than five subjects although most universities have plans to increase undergraduate education in English.

Some research universities offer most of their teaching in English at their University Colleges. Universities such as Utrecht, Leiden and Amsterdam, have established colleges which are separate from the parent university but still very much part of that institution from a recognition and reputation point of view. University Colleges offer a liberal-arts style of education which is very different from the British single-subject bachelors degree approach to undergraduate education and has more in common with elite, American colleges. Here students are expected to study a range of subjects before going on to specialise at a later stage. They are perfectly suited to you if you have a wide range of interests and do not wish to be constrained in your choice at this stage of your higher education. Some University Colleges will have an emphasis on a particular field, such as the social sciences or technology. For example, Academy of Technology, Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) at University of Twente may be perfectly suited for you if you are interested in the interface between technology and the humanities.

University Colleges are residential, meaning that students will be expected live together as part of an academic community for the three years of their study. Other universities offer Liberal Arts & Sciences as a degree programme without the residential element. Here you would study a similar curriculum but still be part of the wider student body. Examples of this kind of degree can be found at Erasmus University Rotterdam, Tilburg University and University of Groningen.

b. Universities of Applied Sciences

Undergraduate degrees at Universities of Applied Sciences typically take three or four years and will always include a work placement and usually a period of time studying abroad. It is possible therefore to spend up to 18 months of a four year degree in the UK but this is not recommended. There are 41 universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands although they vary in terms of their size and focus. Some are very small and specialise in a particular area such as agriculture, design or teacher training. These smaller, specialised universities may offer one or two courses in English in their area of expertise.The largest universities of applied sciences typically offer a range of courses in English.

Universities of Applied Sciences typically offer smaller class sizes than Research Universities (although not University Colleges). The style of education is more practical and there is a strong emphasis on group work and teaching skills necessary for the work place. The type of subjects you can study at Universities of Applied Sciences is very different to Research Universities. Some examples of the kind of degrees on offer are Life Sciences at HAN University of Applied Sciences, Process and Food Technology at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, Hotel Management at Stenden University of Applied Sciences and International Game Design and Architecture at NHTV Breda. These degrees are highly practical in nature and you should be highly employable upon completion of such a degree.

Universities of Applied Sciences focus almost entirely on teaching although some have limited applied research activities. This means that they will never feature in global league tables of universities as these focus heavily on research outcomes. Universities of Applied Sciences may be the right choice for you if you are more concerned about improving your employment opportunities than continuing with your studies beyond undergraduate level.

 HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT COURSE

 It should be said, applied technology research universities and universities no gap between good and bad, are subject to the Dutch government supervises higher education institutions, issue the same bachelor's and master's degree. Difference between the two lies in the direction of culture and ways, will depend on your personality, more like the way what kind of further selection. If you are a social-type personality, outgoing, good interpersonal relationships, like speeches, like the hands making things, then go to university research may not be the best choice.

U class school class focusing on research, undergraduate courses rather than H and more. If you really pay attention to school fame, that you can graduate to U class graduate.

And in terms of looking for a job, you need to look professional and be, would have been a lot of students want to apply for U class but read to The Hague a year H H class university to know that is not so good mix, let alone a U, H class something very useful to teach the most important is the opportunity to exchange learning and practice, and this practice is very important, directly decide in the future if you can stay in this company, in addition to a lot of the teachers are also working employees, a lot of practical experience and work resources, many students are introduced through mentor work.
