Founded in 2010, the Dutch Research University Consortium currently consists of 7 members who work together to give access to information about study options and systems in the Netherlands as well as their own institutions. Two collaborative partners were added in 2022 to broaden the scope of DRU, bringing the university of applied science perspective to the consortium.

The consortium produces a small number of targeted events each year, in addition to helping represent the country of the Netherlands within specific professional organizations around the world.  

DRU has created this website as an informative resource for all students, parents, teachers and counselors to help determine if the Netherlands is the right study destination for the student, manage expectations, and find the right fit programme.

Our members


Each semester DUC members collaborate on events for both students and counselors. Currently these are fully online. Check out what options are available in the coming weeks.
