Answer ( 1 )


    Dutch universities are known to be among the best universities in the world, competing with other famous UK and U.S. universities. You could say the Netherlands is one of the top non-English speaking countries where you can study abroad, get a quality education and find loads of degrees taught in English.
    I think I’m eligible to answer this question because I came to the Netherlands as a 17-year kid from India to pursue my bachelors here without knowing anyone in Europe. I did my BSc. International Business from Maastricht University and I’m still residing in the Netherlands. I always felt like home here which is rear these days as an immigrant considering the situations these days in other parts of the world (Anyway, that’s not the topic).
