Strengthen bileteral relations

When it comes to internationalisation, Neso India is focused on quality. “We’re not just looking at sending Indian students to the Netherlands. Internationalisation has to be a two-way street. (…) We are looking for students who can contribute to the economies of both countries and strengthen the bilateral relations.”

“Alumni are our most important stakeholders”, she concludes. “They are our ambassadors. They come back (from The Netherlands, ed.) with a wealth of information and are ready to spread it across Indian society.”
