Study Opportunities in Holland

Financing your studies

Dutch higher education is subsidised and tuition fees are relatively low. There are many sources of funding available to you for studying in Holland.

Tuition fees

Annual tuition fees for a degree programme or course at a Dutch higher education institution start at approximately €1,950 for EU students. The costs of programmes and courses for non-EU students are generally higher. The average tuition fee for them for bachelor’s programmes lies between €6,000 and €15,000, whereas the costs for a master’s programme lie between €8,000 and €20,000.

Exchange programmes

Before you start searching for scholarships check if your institution has an exchange programme with a Dutch institution. This is the easiest and cheapest way to study in Holland.

As an exchange student from an EU country, you may be eligible to receive student financial support from your home country while you’re studying in Holland.

Some countries give their students financial support when they enrol in regular degree programmes abroad, either directly (in the form of a monthly grant or loan) or indirectly, through tax benefits for your parents.

Contact the international office of your university to check which options are available to you.


Our online search engine Grantfinder gives you a complete overview of all scholarships available for studying in Holland.

Organization Theory

Hi All,
Today is my 2nd day of YEAR-60-Anhtho_Andres Era (!)
Oh yes, I celebrated my 59th birthday yesterday, so in our Vietnamese culture, I am entering my 60th year cycle.

As usual, I just wanted to jot down my “Balance Sheet” of the past year achievement, after having done my Profit-Loss Statement, ROI on my educational investement of year 2015.

Well, based on my own assessment, the result is that for an investment in time, money and opportunity costs for my attendance of the Course on International Management (CIM) offered to Doctoral Students and Future Engineers of the most famous Engineering University in Paris (Ecole des Ponts et Chaussées) which has been the dream destination of most Vietnamese students of French colonial times, my ROI came out positive in terms of knowledge, network, job positioning, and a NEW ME.

The only grey zone in this “SWOT” exercise was that my competences in Finances did not seem to improve in spite of my nth time attending the topic, and as a result, the missing chapter “IPO Methodology for shares valuation of public companies” of my Doctoral thesis on Vietnamese SOE restructuring still remains kind of “vacillating”, so to say.

Indeed, the MAIN motivation that made me choose the whole course (worth 15 ECTS for 150 hours attendance in class) was to earn the missing 3 ETCS to fulfill the requirements of my thesis defence with UPEC. The “moment of truth” for me to sign up for this course on an impulsive and irrational vague motivation, was triggered by the perspective of gaining more knowledge in IPO and M&A, making me an “Expert in Privatisation Theory for Transition Economies” as I pompously chose the title of my research field.

Sadly, there is no magic transformation of cognitive competences without the necessary investment in time and basic foundation for such discipline or any academic subjects at all, within a 2-day refreshening course to a non-financial person like me. Dreaming of fulfilling the gap through an expeditionary learning process based on an illusory perception of job market employability, and unrealistic self-assessment of your own (in)competences is a suicidal academic learning experience.

Painful as it is, I have decided to go back to square one – my favorite theory – and learn from scratch again the foundations of accounting and finance. So, this was my New year resolution of 2016: to enforce my foundations in finance by going way back to my accounting course notes throughout the years.

Unlike young professionals who have the full scope of opportunities ahead of them, I am no more in my “twenties-or-so”, but am at the threshold of the 6th decade of my tumultuous life. So time is running short for me, not my fault, though, as I have kept the pace in cumulating the skills and competences mentioned in most job descriptions I came across during my past 40-year professional life.

But then, why do I keep on doing so? which led me to the usual reflection, for the nth time:”Why do people do what they do?”, “What do I want to achieve in life?”, “What is my definition of ‘Success’?”, “Is Success a premise to ‘Happiness’ if the ultimate objective is TO BE HAPPY?”

Having googled on “motivation theories”, I found this blog by Prof. Ozgurzan on ‘Motivation theory’, ‘Organisation Theory’, ‘Organisation Behavior, Leadership, Human Resource Management’ which helps me come to an important conclusion: TO SUCCEED, Motivation alone is not enough without the necessary competences. TO BE HAPPY is to attain the “Self-actualisation” state as defined in Maslow Hierarchy of Needs Theory.

In order to do so, I must know my own REAL competences, and my own limits, identify opportunities offered on my way, and avoid wrong motivation (the concept of ‘Delusion” in Buddhism), work my way out to attain my own wisdom (self-awareness leading to self-transformation) from lessons learned from people (theoretical knowledge), from learning by doing, and applying these theories into my own working environment (practical or managerial knowledge) and by sharing my experience with others, with by teaching or communicating to selective audience.

Here are just some thoughts of the day to share with those who come across my path, with A BIG Thank you to Professor Ozgurzan of Kadir Has University for the nice work done on this blog, and for providing the opportunity for sharing with your community.

Have a good year of 2016 and Best of Luck for the challenges facing your country.

Acceptable solution for bringing diaspora into SME finance?

This article is really inspiring for Vietnam’s economy also. Thanks for sharing.

Business Strategy in Balkans


It is the unfortunate situation in Serbia today that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) stagnate in the environment of weak consumer purchasing power, slow and uncertain collection of receivables and almost unworkable funding. Adding to this insufficient business knowledge of entrepreneurs and management as well as often outdated technology available to them, it seems to me that this crucial part of our economy is a long way to become a driving force.

A few years ago I participated in the international conference in Johannesburg on the topic of SME finance with delegates from the International Finance Corporation (IFC), banks from Europe, Africa and the USA with relevant experience as well as other parties. It was to my surprise to learn about the range of assistance – not only funds – that IFC provides to local banks all over the world for setting up a system of SME…

Hiểu chính mình

Một tháng nữa đang bắt đầu. Giờ đang là tháng 9 và chẳng mấy chốc sẽ đến Giáng Sinh và sang năm mới 2015. Đó là cách mà R liên hệ với thời gian. Đối với ông, khi tháng Chín đến có nghĩa là kết thúc một năm. Và đối với tôi cũng giống như vậy, một vòng quay của cuộc đời lại đi qua.

Ở Thụy Sĩ, bây giờ là thời điểm để thu hoạch vườn nho, mọi người đang chuẩn bị để đi đến “Lễ Hội Hái Nho” (Fête des Vendanges) được tổ chức trên khắp đất nước Thụy Sĩ để thúc đẩy việc sản xuất rượu trong năm. Đó cũng là thời…
