A beginner’s guide to Dutch academia

September 05, 2022

This guide, an introduction to Dutch research and higher education, serves as a support document for researchers and instructors who are unfamiliar with the Dutch academic setting.

2018, revised in 2022

Our aim is to offer essential information on Dutch academia: how it relates to Dutch politics and society, what the research and teaching culture is like, and how the funding system and academic protocol are structured. We also provide translations of key terms and a list of abbreviations and acronyms. In addition, the text is supported by quotes from an anonymous survey of early and mid-career international staff at Dutch universities.
