Why study in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a country in western Europe with a multicultural population of approximately 17 million people. It has a very rich history in international trade, education, art, literature, design and sciences. This tiny country is famous for the great Dutch Masters, painters like Rembrandt and Van Gogh. They transformed the word around them just like today's masters: designers, concept developers, futurists. The Dutch creative industry of the 21st century is growing rapidly and plays a leading role in strengthening the innovative capacity of the country. The Netherlands strives to be the most creative economy in Europe by 2020.
