Distance learning

The Open University is a government funded institute with 3 faculties and 15 regional centers. The public university has e-courses in English and provides several international Bachelor and Master programmes. The examinations however are in Dutch language so a good understanding of Dutch is necessary. Other popular e-schools are LOI, NHA, NTI and Laudius. An important difference with the Open University is that the e-schools are commercial companies. They offer lots of courses for a study at home. The LOI has the best courses and Laudius is often the cheapest. To get an idea of the prices in Holland visit the Dutch websites.
