10x Reasons to study in Eindhoven

Eindhoven has a vibrant and international student scene. An unconventional student town with a strong focus and high tech innovation and conceptual design. We’re known for being 'the most inventive city in the world' (Forbes).But there are a few more reasons why choosing Eindhoven could be your best decision ever.

This is where tech meets design

Home to Dutch Design and blessed with a world class technical university, Eindhoven is where engineers and creatives work together on trailblazing inventions. You may have heard of Amber Mobility, Shapeways or Additive Industries, to name a few.

Dazzling startup scene

The successful startup scene in Eindhoven has many fathers. Top notch mentoring programs for young tech companies is definitely one of them. The Netherlands is praised for its opportunities for entrepreneurs, innovators and great minds who think on an international scale.

De kracht van studententeams

You might have seen them winning the World Solar Challenge, excelling at the RoboCup or developing the world’s first drone to assist both medical professionals and patients. Our students teams are a great way to put your knowledge into practice. And make friends for life.

Free exercise everyday

The Dutch live on their bikes. With top-class cycling lanes it is a fun, fast and safe way to get around. We even have floating flyovers dedicated to cyclists.

Centrally located in Europe

But I don’t like bikes… Don’t worry, we’ve got buses, taxis, and trains too. And an international airport. We’re only an hour away from Antwerp, Amsterdam, and London.

Vibrant cultural events

Start your lazy Sunday morning at the Feel Good Market, dance the night away at STRP Biennale or mingle with art lovers at the Young Art Nights. Eindhoven has got you covered when it comes to inspiring events. A great way to get energized and meet new people.


Design capital

Once a year the city turns into the design capital of the world during the Dutch Design Week. The festival loves experimental design, innovation, and crossovers. It also offers a unique stage every year to the work of talented students in tech and design.

A city of pioneers

Eindhoven attracts a mixture of unconventional and pioneering folks. Academic frontrunners, entrepreneurs that help surgeons do the impossible and talented young people that decided to call Eindhoven their new home.

A place to stay

Our scientists may be world-class, fortunately, our renting rates are not. In Eindhoven, you are likely to find a room at affordable prices. Expect to pay around 40% less monthly rent compared to other student cities.

We speak English

… and Dutch, of course. Most of us are fluent in both. The Dutch are said to be friendly and open-minded. We like to meet new people. Weren’t we all new here at some point?
