If you want to study abroad there are many things to take into account. For instance your tuition fee and funding, application and registration, your degree and living in the Netherlands. Here is a list of a few things to consider. Often there are different rules for European students (EEA students) and non-European students, so please note which information applies to you. 

Tuition fee and funding 

In the Netherlands everybody has to pay a tuition fee. The height of this fee depends on whether you are a European (EEA) student or a non-European student. There are different possibilities to fund you studies, for example by applying for a scholarship or grant.

Housing for your horse

Of course you want to take your horse with you for your study of Equine Sports & Business.

We assist our students in finding the right place by proving a list of stables in the neighbourhood and linking you to one of our current students that is willing to help you with finding the right stable.
