Netherlands

‌The connections between the UK and the Netherlands are well known but did you know that 60-80 Dutch students come to the University of Glasgow every year, starting their studies at a world top 100 university in one of the best student cities? You could join a long line of graduates, that include Eliza Vonck, our first Dutch / Indonesian student, who graduated in Engineering in 1915, returning home (if you want) to be a leader in industry, academia, business, law or media, amongst others.

It’s not just the desire to study in the country that has more world-class universities per head of population than anywhere else, but perhaps our shared inventive spirit, love of art, football...and gin (!) that is so alluring. Interested? The University of Glasgow could be the place for you!

Meet Us

Students who choose to be counselled by an agency should expect the following standards of service:

  • Representatives will support students throughout the application process, providing advice and assistance in the preparation/submission of documents. It is, however, the applicant who must remain ultimately responsible for their account and the management of communications.
  • Representatives will have full access to student data contained within the application form and may manage a student application by discussing all aspects of the application with the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives should be honest and accurate in communicating information about the University to the student and vice versa. At no time should representatives disseminate false or misleading information to the student or to the University.
  • Representatives will conduct themselves with fairness and integrity at all times and are subject to a rigorous selection and ongoing training process by the University of Glasgow.
  • Representatives are paid by the University for their services and will not pass on charges to prospective students.
