Dutch Placement Days in Southeast Asia

Publication date: Jun 12, 2017 12:41 PM

Continuing the success of previous Dutch Placement Days (DPDs), this autumn the Nuffic Neso offices in Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand will organise a new round of events in Ho Chi Minh City, Jakarta and Bangkok to help Dutch institutions connect with prospective students.

Placement Days and education fairs

The Dutch Placement Day (DPD) is a good channel to explore the study abroad markets in Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam. The DPD was initiated by Neso Indonesia and has been a regional event since 2015. Nuffic statistics show that incoming student mobility from these countries has increased by an impressive 50% since 2014.

Education fairs and DPDs play an important role in creating awareness among students with an interest in Dutch higher education and parents.

EHEF and OCSC are more traditional large-scale education fairs, which attract students who want to know more about studying abroad. In South-East Asia, face-to-face contact with institution representatives is still much appreciated.
