In this way, you learn not only to operate at an academic level, but also to work independently on real-world issues.

It is these very differences that make the UM learning experience unique.

Selectivity

IB Grades

UFP Grades

Less Selective, Selective

As the Dutch government equals the IB diploma to Dutch high school diploma, having graduated IB is enough to qualify for entry. However, some programmes might require additional subjects, please see the link regarding subject requirements.
Universities in the Netherlands are relatively easier to get in than UK universities, but they are more difficult to stay in. Next to graduating high school of course, students mostly have to prove themselves in their first year of university.

This depends per programme and has to be seen on a case to case basis.
