June is here and summer is around the corner. Although for many in high school it’s time to start winding down, ‘tis the season to start shortlisting universities! As they look around for options, the most popular country for education in continental Europe moves into the line of sight of many students: The Netherlands.

It’s a popular choice. With the highest number of English-speaking accredited undergraduate programs and its renowned quality of education for a fraction of the cost of other countries, it’s no wonder the Netherlands is on your shortlist.

In this week’s Unipod, University Counselor Robert Duff from Jumeirah Baccalaureate School tackles the most prevalent questions students have about higher education in the Netherlands.

Students at JBS apply to Netherlands universities each year, so Rob busts some application myths about this popular destination, as well as touching on a great scholarship opportunity!
