Good to know
A Dutch expression says “Become big by staying small”. Although the Netherlands is a small country, it has a rich cultural tradition and is today one of the most prosperous countries in the world. The country’s historical ties to other parts of the world have brought foreigners to settle here for decades, bringing their own ideas and cultures. This makes Dutch people commonly open-minded and tolerant. The Netherlands is now home to more than 190 different nationalities.
The number of places in Erasmus + is limited. The granting of a scholarship is therefore not automatic and the amount paid may vary. However, we invite you to apply because exchange places (excluding Erasmus +) may be offered. Please refer to the Erasmus+ section.
