Another extremely compelling reason to seriously think about an undergraduate degree in the Netherlands is the very reasonable annual fees, currently around 2000 euros per academic year, coupled with the excellent quality of life and affordable cost of living. The Dutch university system is also noted for its healthy promotion of intercollegiate collaboration and coordination – different universities in the Netherlands, and different departments of those respective universities, offer interesting opportunities to combine and amalgamate courses. There is also great emphasis on links with industry, government agencies and international organizations, enabling students to undertake internships and job placements, gaining valuable experience while they are doing their undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. In fact, in postgraduate Masters degrees it is generally mandatory for a candidate to do a placement, which is typically with a company in the private sector, a government agency, or a NGO – for instance, Greenpeace, IEA, and IRENA.
