Welcome to Holland
Netherland (informally known as Holland) is a West European country that is beautifully situated in the Caribbean that is also considered one of the largest in the region.
Historically, England is one of the most suitable students’ destinations in the world, but the peaceful and opportunity-filled constitute the global competitiveness of most opportunities in the country.
The welcoming nature of the country places the nation in our list of best student destinations in the world, ranking due to the number of admissions offered to international students and the size of bursaries given out for these students through various scholarship schemes.
The Holland Scholarship 2021 is one of the factors of this consideration whose applications are currently being accepted from suitable candidates.

Cost of Living as a Student in Netherlands
Dream of pursuing a degree in Holland? The cost is a factor that must not be ignored.
Based on previous studies we have included the cost of study in this country, as an added advantage to this scholarship information.
This is because ascertaining the cost of living in this country will prepare your mind and resources to accept the € 5,000 worth scholarship or not.
Apart from the € 5,000 annual (once) offer, the average cost of tuition in most of the Universities in the Netherlands ranges between € 6,000 to 15, 000 per year as an undergraduate.
And on the other hands, we collected facts that tuition fees for Master in some of the schools range from € 8, 000 to 20, 000 per year.
The estimate above for tuition fee is for students outside EU/EEA who are the right candidates for the Holland 2021/2022 scholarship.
Paying the tuition fees in the country (and like any other country in the world) is not just enough as there are good number of other study requirements and life essentials.
This gave birth to a segment of the cost of study known as Living cost. The living cost in any country comprises of the following:
- Leisure and many more.
And in summarized figures, some cities in major Dutch student environments get the following projection:
Enscheda: Based on studies and data collected from students, it is estimated to cost a student from 650 – 920 EUR in a month.
Eindhoven: Eindhoven is another popular student city and it is estimated that a student may spend from 850 – 1,350 in a month.
Amsterdam: Amsterdam over the years has gained global popularity with the number of institutions and students dwelling therein.
It is estimated that a student may spend from 1,000 – 1,500 in a month, living in this city.
Delft: in this list, Delft is another rich student city where students might spend from 780 – 1,200 in a month for effective sustenance.
Rotterdam: from the observation, is clear that the estimation does not vary with significant figures, but they are all subject to the individual.
In this city, it is suggested that 760 – 1,250 in a month will be ideal for a student living in Rotterdam.
