University preparation in Amsterdam and Groningen 

The Holland International Study Centre (ISC) saw a 110% increase in students confirmed for September 2015 compared with 2014. As a result of this expansion, the centre moved to a dynamic new location in the heart of Amsterdam. Here students enjoy a riverside setting, proximity to Amsterdam Central Station and panoramic views of the city.

In September 2016 the Holland ISC opened a second centre on-campus at the University of Groningen and Hanze University of Applied Sciences. Students who study here will be preparing for degrees at one of the two universities on-campus and will be part of university life while they are at the ISC.

Our programmes provide access to English-taught degrees at a range of Dutch universities. Our partners range from Times Higher Education top 200 ranked research universities to some of the best universities of applied sciences in the country. 

Graduates from a Dutch university have the opportunity to stay in Holland and spend a period of up to twelve months looking for a job. With Holland's economy among the strongest in Europe, it's a great place for international students to launch their careers.
