Dutch Applied Universities want to meet students in Dublin and CorkEunicas

Following the large numbers of Irish students now enrolling in English-taught degree numbers in Dutch Research Universities, significant numbers are also now enrolling in the more hands-on, employment-focused programmes, in the Applied Universities (Universities of Applied Sciences, UAS) in the Netherlands, which offer programmes in:

Physiotherapy
Game Design
Business
IT
Engineering
Art & Design
Hotel Management
Global Development

Music & Media Management
Sports Management

and many more

A group of these Applied Universities are coming to Ireland this month in events in Cork (April 11th) and Dublin (April 12th). These events offer students and their families the opportunity to meet the universities and Irish students who are studying there. Though Leaving Cert or QQI students will no doubt be immersed in revision in April, they might be interested to know that many of these universities take applications into July and August. Of course, it is an ideal opportunity for 5th years and TY’s to become familiar with these options, ahead of key decisions in the coming year.

In the Netherlands, the philosophy is that our students have a right to an education, secured by:

Low entry thresholds– 6 passes at Leaving Cert (2 at H4 or 2 at H5): reflecting students’ right to an education in mainland Europe and sidestepping the need to obsess about Leaving Cert points. Importantly, students with a relevant QQI/FETAC Level 5 qualification qualify for degree programmes at a UAS.

Low tuition fees: Eur 2060 p.a., with a 35-year no-interest loan from the Dutch government, to pay these fees. There are other loans/grants available for living expenses. Also, if you qualify for a SUSI Maintenance Grant, you can take it with you. This all ensures that it is often less expensive to study in the Netherlands, than in Ireland.
