Dutch university applications from the UK increase despite Brexit vote

Since the Brexit vote last June, Study in Holland has been closely monitoring both the number of British students showing interest to study in Holland and the number of Dutch university applications from the UK. Greater uncertainty regarding tuition fees and visa requirements can prompt British students to postpone their applications to European universities. After Britain voted Leave, however, applications from the UK to some of the mainstream universities in the Netherlands if anything increases. For example, the University of Groningen has reported an upturn in its UK students for September 2016.

Responding to BBC's report that some Dutch universities saw a drop in UK applications and enrolments, Study in Holland explained that the figure could have been complicated by a number of British students entitled to other EU passports and using them when applying to Dutch universities.
