Higher education

Amsterdam is home to two prestigious universities: VU University and the Amsterdam University offer well over 2000 places to international students every year. In the Region North of Amsterdam, colleges like InHolland and ROC are the leading institutions for senior secondary vocational education (MBO) and beyond.

In the region, education institutions and businesses work closely together, particularly at cluster level. As a result, students receive an education that is perfectly tailored to the demand from the job market, making them ideal employees for local businesses.
