University preparation in Amsterdam

Following a period of extended growth, in 2015 Holland International Study Centre moved to a dynamic new location in the heart of Amsterdam. Students benefit from purpose-built classrooms, a riverside setting, proximity to Amsterdam Centraal station and panoramic views of the city.

Our programmes develop English language and academic knowledge, while helping students adapt to the Dutch education system. Students can progress to a range of English-taught degrees at one of our Dutch partner universities. Our partners include research universities ranked in world top 100 (Times Higher Education World University Rankings) and 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.
