Open University the Netherlands 

The Open University of the Netherlands (OUNL) is a state establishment founded in 1984. Its social task is to provide a second chance or second way to attend higher education (partly through distance learning) to adults who have not previously had this opportunity. The tasks of the OUNL, as stated in the Higher Education and Research Act (WHW), are to provide initial courses at university level in the form of distance education and contribute to innovation in higher education. By dispensing with formal admission requirements and offering considerable flexibility as regards place, duration and pace of study, the OUNL makes higher education accessible to a wide range of people. There are 12 study centres and 2 support centres in the Netherlands and 6 study centres in Flanders, which provide information, guidance and advice for students in relation to their studies. Although the OUNL is independent, it maintains contacts with other institutions of higher education.

Certificates and diplomas
Students who pass their examinations are awarded a certificate which can then be ‘traded in’ if they subsequently decide to follow a full OUNL programme. A full university degree can be obtained by completing one of the eight degree programmes.

Academic titles
The Open University of the Netherlands has the right to award students completing a degree programme legally recognised titles such as ‘BA’ and ‘MA’. It is also possible to obtain a doctorate (‘Dr’).

Additional information
There are no admission requirements for enrollment at the Open University. When someone is 18 years or older, he / she may apply for a training. The courses of the Open University are all recognized.

Leiden Educational Institutions (LOI) is a commercial institution that provides distance learning. LOI provides more than 900 accredited programs and courses.

Dutch Language Institute (NTI) provides distance learning over 70 years. NTI offers more than 850 programs and courses, from short courses to complete master's programs.

The National Trade Academy (NHA) has been offering distance education in 80 years. The NHA was founded by a teacher who wanted to make education affordable and accessible for everyone. High quality and low tuition fees, that is the mission of the NHA.
