They're Back!! Dutch Universities in Ireland to Meet You
Written on Friday, 17 May 2019 00:00

They’re back! Further to the successful 'OMG We're Going Dutch' events, over recent years, a large group of Dutch universities are returning to Ireland in October, with events in Cork, Galway and Dublin. The fact that they are taking the trouble to come back to Ireland to meet Irish students (and their families), so soon after the recent events, is unsurprising in the context of the fact that over 1000 Irish students are currently enrolled on programmes in the Netherlands.

This is another great opportunity to meet and talk to Dutch Research Universities and Universities of Applied Sciences (see individual event details for those universities travelling) and.most importantly, to share experiences with Irish students currently studying in the Netherlands, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. You will be able to discuss a wide range of matters, including teaching and learning styles, programme content, entry requirements and financial concerns. Most importantly, many of the universities will be bringing with them Irish students who are already studying in the Netherlands. And remember, not only are Dutch Universities very highly ranked but, they DON'T DO POINTS!!

To book for these events, which are available at no charge, go here:

21st October 2019 CORK

22nd October 2019 GALWAY

23rd October 2019 DUBLIN

EUNiCAS will of course be at all these events to deal with any questions that you may have, about studying in the Netherlands, or elsewhere.

At most of these universities, you have a Right To An Education provided you meet their minimum entry requirements (In Ireland, that is six passes at Leaving Cert, inc 2 x H5 or, for Dutch Universities, six passes at Leaving Cert, inc 2 x H4). Some programmes have subject requirements and most of those in the Health Sciences have an entrance test. Note that those described as UAS (Universities of Applied Sciences) will take a relevant FETAC Level 5 as meeting their entry requirements 

Contact us now so that we can assist you with programme choice, ensure that you apply correctly and can assist you in a range of areas, such as student finance and accommodation

Some programmes, for which you might have missed the deadline (e.g. the Liberal Arts & Sciences degrees in the Netherlands) have a second start date in February, and you can still apply to these.

If you want to be a primary school teacher, you might consider enrolling In the B.Ed. International Teacher Education programme, taught through English, in NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences.

With the demand for primary teachers at international schools worldwide currently high. It is a superb opportunity to be trained to teach at international schools throughout the world. The programme contains a high level of practical teacher training and n your second and third year, you choose two specialised subjects, attending classes either at NHL Stenden’ s campus in the Netherlands or at one of their partner colleges in Denmark or Norway. Specialised subjects include: Art & Culture; Inclusive Education; Religion & Intercultural Understanding; History & Geography; Science & Technology and Physical Education & Health

In the context of the current teacher shortage in Ireland, and the increasing availability of English-taught programmes in mainland Europe, it is no surprise that the International Teacher programme (ITEPS) at Stenden University of Applied Sciences is gathering a lot of interest from Irish students at the moment. Two of the Irish students currently on the programme share their experience: 

“If your dream is to be an international teacher, studying ITEPS at Stenden will help you realise that dream. A huge bonus of the programme is the many teaching practice periods you will undertake, with the opportunity to travel all over the world. I would recommend studying ITEPS to anyone who has the same dream as me.” (Brian)

“Undoubtedly studying on this programme has been an incredible experience. The staff and  the lecturers have been extremely welcoming and supportive. One aspect of the  course   which I have found quite intriguing, and most welcome, is the power shift between    students and lecturers. The lecturers don’t view themselves as an unquestionable authority. (Jon)”

Application for this programme for entry this year are still being accepted until 15th August. Entry requirements are only six passes at Leaving Cert, two at H4 (they wont look at your points!) Fees and cost of living is lower than Ireland. So, give it a go!

Should you prefer to teach in Ireland, rather than travel the world, you should note that. in accordance with EU Directive 2005/36/EC, people who qualified as teachers in one EU member state, are entitled to have their qualifications recognised in all other member states. This recognition may be granted subject to conditions, including making good any shortfalls. The Teaching Council is the competent authority in Ireland for assessing applications from people who qualified as teachers in other EU/EEA countries, and they require students to complete an Irish language programme. To qualify to teach in Ireland.

If you prefer teaching at international secondary schools, Stenden also offers International Teacher Education for Secondary Schools (ITESS) programme that prepares you for an adventurous career in the rapidly growing world of international secondary schools.
