There is a vivacious student society and numerous fraternities and sororities, which organize a wide variety of activities. The combination of its rich history and numerous present-day activities makes Breda an inspiring city! The city's charming historical centre is not that big (it's easy to find your way around), but very cozy and lively and students love it.  

Studying abroad for a few months, gives you an opportunity to broaden your horizons. You live in an international environment, meet people with different cultural backgrounds, gather international knowledge and accumulate important contacts useful in you future career. In addition, you will considerably improve your command of modern foreign languages. The long and the short of it is that studying abroad is a wonderful opportunity... Why not seize it?!

These internships provide you with on-the-job-experience and allow you to learn as you work at an international company that matches your interests and ambitions; a company which may even become your first employer!

Official statistics show that for the year 2015, 80 % of the Bachelors graduates of a Dutch University of Applied Sciences, found a suitable job in their specific field and level, within 3 months of obtaining their diploma. 

These indicators are considerably lower for graduates from a Dutch Research University. The reason for this is that the education system of the Universities of Applied Sciences is more practical and directly related to a certain profession, whereas the education philosophy of the Research Universities is more general and scientifically orientated.

With the Dutch economy recovering and growing at a fast pace in 2017, these indicators for the Universities of Applied Sciences are expected to have improved significantly in 2018. In fact, for some fields of study, students are at the moment already offered suitable jobs before graduating.
