How many international students are currently pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree in the Netherlands and how has this changed over time? Which programmes and fields of study are popular amongst international degree students? What effect do developments such as the war in Ukraine and Brexit have on incoming degree mobility?

During the session we will answer these questions and more, based on the findings of our just-published report: Incoming degree mobility in Dutch higher education 2022-23.
