Universities are no longer aggressively recruiting international students, according to the Financial Times.

After examining administrators at all 13 Dutch universities, the Financieele Dagblad reported on Friday that most of them have stopped aggressively recruiting international students. According to the paper, institutions are instead focusing on delivering information to prospective students who approach them. Eindhoven University of Technology is the only one attempting to attract more international students, with a goal of 25% international students each degree course. ‘We don’t achieve that % in most courses, so there’s still room for international students,’ a representative told the newspaper. According to the Dutch Universities Association VSNU, the shift away from direct recruiting has been noticeable for some time.

According to the Dutch Universities Association VSNU, the shift away from direct recruiting has been noticeable for some time. A spokeswoman added, “The growth in student numbers is putting pressure on the school system.” ‘Universities aim to retain quality while also reducing employee stress.’

The number of students from outside the EU who attended a Dutch institution fell by 4% last year. According to VSNU estimates, more European students enrolled in a Dutch university degree, bringing the total increase in foreign student numbers to 13%.
