Economics

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

The study of economics is one which is very valuable to today’s society. Economic principles can be applied to a broad range of institutions, including health care, government, finance, business, politics, and even religion. All of these agencies require time and expenses, and thus can be view with an economic outlook.

The Netherlands is a constituent country of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, consisting of twelve provinces in North-West Europe and three islands in the Caribbean. English speaking students will have no problems finding suitable courses. For international students applying to universities in the Netherlands, several scholarships are available.
