Study a Governance degree in the Netherlands in 2024

As an academic field, governance involves the understanding of the framework of laws, powers and language of a society, which are normally handled by a government, market or network. In an increasingly globalised world, it is important to continue the development of governance policies and activities. As a student of governance, your knowledge and understanding will become integral to the evolution and growth of the systems of the future.

Modules you study might include international law, religion and world politics, global economy, and human rights. Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and tutorials, as well as group projects. Depending on your course, you may also be presented with the opportunity to take part in a work placement.

Study in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a great choice for international students, as it has a very large international population that would be ready to make any new international students feel at home. The Netherlands was also one of the first non-native English speaking countries to offer courses taught in English to international students. The Dutch people have a long standing reputation of being tolerant and open minded, meaning you will feel welcomed and comfortable as soon as you arrive in the country.
