Week of the International Student 2019

more about:
During this week higher education institutions and vocational education and training institutions in the Netherlands put students with international experience in the spotlight.

This includes Dutch students who study abroad.

We celebrate The Week of the International Student every year around the Day of the International Student (17 November). This year the week takes place from 16 - 22 November.

An international experience adds to the personal and professional growth of Dutch and international students. This is this year’s theme: what are the benefits of international experience?

Students who spend time abroad share a similar experience that makes them stand out. And that’s exactly what unites them. Let’s make the most of that connection. This week is the perfect moment to enthuse other students to take that leap as well!

Join us!

Please join us to make this another successful Week of the International Student!
