    Sharp Increase in Numbers of UK and Irish Students Enrolling in Dutch Universities
    Recent figures released by VSNU [The Association of Dutch Universities] reveal a sharp increase in the numbers of UK and Irish students enrolled on programmes taught through English in Dutch Research Universities. There are currently 1235 British and 163 Irish students enrolled at these universities. Though Dutch universities have been promoting strongly in the UK in recent years, this has only just started in Ireland and Dutch Universities report a sharp increase in Irish appplications this year.
    These universities with the most enrolments in 2013, include University of Maastricht [393 UK and Irish students], University of Amsterdam [232], University of Leiden [232], University of Utrecht [146] and University of Groningen [131]. All of these universities are ranked in the world's top 100.
    In addition to students in all 13 of the Dutch Research Universities, there are also increasing numbers of British and, particularly, Irish students enrolling in the less academic-centred but highly employment-focused Universities of Applied Sciences, in institutions such as Saxion, NHTV Breda, Hanze. Hague and Stenden Universities of Applied Sciences.
    Tuition Fees in Dutch Universities are Eur 1906 pa with Full Tuition Fee Loans available from the Dutch government, and a contribution to living expenses
    In talking with British and Irish students at these Universities, EUNiCAS is receiving very positive feedback, paricularly in terms of teaching quality, student support and vibrancy of social life

    Students Spoilt For Choice For Medicine , Dentistry and Vet Science Programmes
    There are now over 50 medicine programmes, over 20 Dentistry programmes and 10 Veterinary Science degree programmes, taught through English, in Continental Europe and recognised by the relevant professional bodies.
    Particularly popular this year are the Med programmes taught in six Italian Public Universities. Students are sending back glowing reviews, particulalrly those programmes on in University of Milan and University of Pavia. Entry to all six of these programmes is through a common entrance test, and A-Level or Leaving Certificate grades are ignored. The deadline for registering for the test for entry this year is April 03, so students still have time. Tuition Fees in Italy are between Eur 600 and Eur 3800, and are set with reference to family income. Expect an announcement imminently of a new medicine programme in a private Italian institution.
    Other destinations that are growing in popularity include some of the Medical Universities in Bulgaria [for example MU Varna ], on foot of the availability of Tuition Fee Loans there, and Slovakia [for example PJSU, which has its entrance tests in Dublin and London on 26/27 April]
    The growth in numbers of UK, and particularly Irish students, enrolling on Veterinary Medicine programmes is marked. There were nearly 100 first years, from UK and Ireland, on these programmes in 2013. To date, these programmes have only been available in Central & Eastern Europe but U. Cardenal Herrera, in Valencia has launched a new Vet Science degree this year

    Most Popular Programmes
    The most popular programmes in Europe this year, as measured by EUNiCAS registrations by UK and Irish students are in:

    1. Medicine 2. Veterinary Science 3. Liberal Arts & Sciences 4. Psychology 5.Business 6. Life Sciences 7. Engineering 8.International Relations 9. International Law 10.IT/Game Design
    Amongst Irish students [but not so much amongst UK students] there is a strong interest in the Dutch Physiotherapy programmes.
    There is still time to apply to most of these programmes for final year students and, for Year 12 / 5th Year students, if you were to register now, you can avail of our services until September 2015.
    We strongly recommend that you begin researching these opportunities as early as you can, in your secondary school career
