    One of the main advantages of studying environmental sciences in the Netherlands is that it can stimulate students to do relevant internships or graduation projects abroad.

    International students who study in the Netherlands will also benefit from our open and international culture.

    As an international student studying environmental science, you'll gain very relevant expertise on water management, soil quality, climate change and ecology.

    Two examples of career tracks are consultancy related to water/air/soil/ecological quality or working at governmental/regulatory bodies, for example, municipality/provincial departments tasked with environmental monitoring or legislation.

    The Netherlands is one of the best-reviewed countries for subjects related to the circular and biobased economy. Here, the students will study and live the applications of these concepts.

    Studying in the Netherlands is beneficial mostly because of the international scenario. Here, nearly everyone speaks English and is used to be in multicultural environments.

    A degree in environmental science means that international students can be ready to work in multidisciplinary fields. The study in environmental sciences prepares students to work in very different places, from scientific to consultancy; from farms to industries.

    I study Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy & Technology. The lecturers have a passion for the subjects they teach and want you to learn. The group-based learning is a great way to see different perspectives of the subject and gets you to think outside the box. It also prepares you for collaboration with different types of people in the future. The workload is not that much, it is more varying in degree depending on what time of the year it is. I like that it is not constantly too much work, as you're not constantly overwhelmed, and don't lose passion for the subjects over time.
