Netherlands is another amazing place to pursue your education in. It has been always a popular destination with places like Amsterdam, Delft, Rotterdam, etc. and quality courses for technology, science and Engineering. With an impressive exposure such as the location for International Court of Justice in Hague, Netherlands promises to be a lucrative option for students coming there. Aesthetically also, Netherlands has quite a few places. This is because the country is quite small, and bicycles are the chief modes of commutation there.

However, unlike colleges in Germany, colleges in Netherlands are not free of tuition cost. As of 2016, Netherlands hosted close to 200k international students, with almost 7-8k of them being Indian. Therefore, the Dutch government is making active efforts to ensure that students find Netherlands quite lucrative. Some of those measures include introducing close to 5 million scholarships as of 2017, aims to increase Indian student base to about 15k etc. In the light of that, it is important to take a look at some of the most common scholarships in Netherlands. Apart from this, Maastricht University is offering students 24 full scholarships for those hailing from outside EU/EEA.
