Skills and KnowledgeThe Dutch education system couples academia and industry and has broad international orientation.
The link between theory and practice is important at the different levels of education. Therefore, internships are a major part of this - students undertake internships for various durations, from full-time for several months up to combining work and studying at school.
The Netherlands cherishes the values of excellent workmanship and uses such methods as bilingual education, international internships and international partner schools to encourage young people to think beyond their national borders. The world is the Netherlands' playing field and all young Dutch people must be trained for an international job market. The Made in Holland- Skills and Knowledge gives you an insight in the way the Dutch organise their education together with their national and international partners.
