There are over 90,000 international students in Holland. And more than 60,000 members of the Holland Alumni Network. How did studying in Holland change their lives? From now on, you will be able to read their stories on the EP-Nuffic website, in the new bi-weekly series ‘Thinking of Holland’.

The result of internationalising education
“I’ve become more relaxed,” says Indian student Hitoshma in her story. “Why? I think it’s because people are so direct here. There’s no reading between the lines. I know exactly what’s being asked of me.” It is one of the many examples of how studying in Holland impacted a student’s life and development: the tangible result of internationalising education.
