Netherlands is One of Europe's Top Study Destinations
The Netherlands is still in the Top 5 of countries ranked the best choices for international students wanting to study full-time degrees in Europe.
In the 2018 edition of the Study.EU Country Ranking it enjoys an overall 4th place. It scores particularly well in terms of quality education and offering students and graduates a good quality of life and career prospectives.
The list is topped by Germany, followed by the UK and France. Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences’ main education partner, the University of Brighton, is situated in the UK. A total of 30 European countries were ranked based on scores in three dimensions: Education, Cost, and Life & Career.
In the education category, researchers looked at how countries performed in three of the most reputable university rankings (QS, THE, ARWU) as well as the number of study programmes offered in English. The quality of a country’s education system weighs the most when students consider their options in Europe.
Also considered important is the cost of living and average tuition fees. The last category looks at the quality of life and career perspectives for international graduates. This year the ranking also takes into consideration personal safety as a factor.
