Holland, or more formally the Netherlands, is an internationally oriented and innovative country located at a central spot in Europe. It is bordered by Germany to the east, Belgium to the south and the North Sea to the north and west.
Once you have arrived in Holland, you will discover that many European capitals are within easy reach. Brussels is two hours away by train, Paris takes only five hours and a short flight from Amsterdam will take you to London, Madrid or Berlin.
The Netherlands is an increasingly popular study destination for students from around the world who are looking to earn a bachelor's or master's degree. Dutch higher education institutions together offer more than 1,500 international study programmes taught entirely in English. This makes Holland the front-runner in continental Europe. Holland was the first non-English-speaking country to offer courses taught in English.
