Growing numbers of foreign students head for Holland

The number of foreign students arriving in the Netherlands to study this year is expected to rise, particularly from Spain, Greece, Italy and Portugal, according to internet site StudyPortals.

Earlier this year, 2,200 Spanish, 1,750 Italian and 1,550 Greek students completed their studies at Dutch universities. No figures are available for Portugese students.
The Netherlands is growing in popularity with foreign students, partly because the fees are lower than in other countries, and partly because many university courses are taught in English, says StudyPortals.
