Minister wants more control over internationalisation

Minister of Education Ingrid van Engelshoven says higher education in the Netherlands must be able to internationalise further, but only if it improves the quality of education and if Dutch students are not displaced, writes Janene Pieters for NL Times.

According to reports from ANP news agency, Van Engelshoven is therefore giving universities and universities of applied sciences more room to internationalise, but this will go with clearer conditions and stricter supervision

Dutch universities are increasingly popular with foreign students, also resulting in more courses being given in English instead of Dutch. This development resulted in dissatisfaction among student unions, who complain that Dutch lecturers and students are not proficient enough in English to perform well and that Dutch students are being displaced by foreign ones.
