International Schools

Primary and secondary international schools in the Netherlands can be both publicly and privately funded. They are subsidized by the Ministry of Education, and they offer education in English within the Dutch educational system. However, within this framework, primary international schools’ curricula may be based on any one of three programs:

  • the British Curriculum for Primary Schools
  • the International Primary Curriculum (IPC)
  • the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP)

Private schools can follow curricula from the country of origin. In public secondary international schools, students are prepared either for the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) or the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IBMYP). Students who finish this stage can then start the two-year International Baccalaureate (IB). After getting the IB diploma, students are qualified for the higher education programs.

More info about international education in the Netherlands can be found at Dutch International Schools and Stichting Internationaal Onderwijs.
