EDUCATION

HIGHER EDUCATION • Third-level education is offered at a vocational level (HBO, a ‘university of applied sciences’ or hogeschool) and at an academic level (WO, at a universiteit). • Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees are available at both HBO and WO institutions, but only universities offer PhD programs. Nuffic (Netherlands organisation for international cooperation in higher education; www. nuffic.nl) includes extensive information about the Dutch higher education system. • There is a small, third branch of higher education offering international education (IE), comprising advanced courses suited to international students. • Institutions are either government-funded, or government-approved. HBO • Nearly half a million students are enrolled at ‘universities of applied sciences’ or hogescholen/HBO that provide practical-based four-year programs. • Here, students prepare for particular professions in one of seven sectors: agriculture, engineering and technology, economics and business administration, healthcare, fine and performing arts, education/ teacher training and social welfare. • For more information visit www.hbo-raad.nl.
