Did you know that international students contribute greatly to the Dutch state treasury? They boost the Dutch knowledge economy by a whopping € 1.57 billion annually. And did you know that they also raise the quality of higher education?


We think it’s time to put these international students into the spotlights. We will do so during this year’s edition of the Week of the international student that will take place from 13 to 17 November 2017.  

Let’s talk!
Based on the current media attention for international students, a few things clearly need to change. In order to bring change, we need to talk first. Only through dialogue can we begin to understand each other, change points of view and start solving problems. Therefore, this week is all about encounters and exchanges between international students and their educational institutions, their teachers and professionals.
