Oldest Universities in the Netherlands

Introduction

What are the oldest Universities in the Netherlands? uniRank tries to answer this question by publishing a list of 54 Dutch Universities ordered by year of establishment and meeting the following uniRank selection criteria:

  • being chartered, licensed or accredited by the appropriate Dutch higher education-related organization
  • offering at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees)
  • delivering courses predominantly in a traditional, face-to-face, non-distance education format
Our aim is to highlight which Dutch Universities have the longest history and tradition and how this correlates to their uniRank University Ranking.
