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 professional organizations around the world.  

DRU has created this website as a resource for all students, parents, teachers and counselors who wish to learn more about studying in the Netherlands at one of the DRU member institutions. 

Our members


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