International education in the Netherlands

Until recently, this website was managed by the International Education Foundation (Stichting Internationaal Onderwijs – SIO), which has been liquidated as of 1 June 2023.

Some of SIO’s activities, including providing information on international education in the Netherlands and managing this website, are continued by UWC Netherlands.

UWC Netherlands is part of the global UWC organisation that aims to bring people, countries and cultures together through education for a peaceful and sustainable world.

This website presents an overview of international schools in the Netherlands. There is also extensive information on laws and regulations related to international education. This vademecum aims to be helpful for parties considering setting up a new international school.

On the occasion of its liquidation and the 70th anniversary of Stichting Internationaal Onderwijs (SIO), a book was published:

Beyond frontiers, 70 years for international education in the Netherlands.
