Universities take steps to manage influx of international students

08 February 2024

With immediate effect, the Dutch universities will be taking their own measures to manage the influx of international students and improve Dutch language skills. They are committed to reducing the intake of international students, reducing the percentage of English-taught Bachelor’s programmes, increasing the number of Dutch-language degree programmes and strengthening the Dutch language proficiency of both lecturers and students

Jouke de Vries, president of the Board of the University of the UG: ‘Internationalization is very important for the Dutch universities and Dutch society. We highly value the contribution of our international talents to science. At the same time, we realize it brings about challenges. To preserve the added value of internationalization, we want to tackle these challenges in earnest.’
