Top Universities in Breda for International Students

These have been vetted by Beyond the States to be the best universities in Breda for international students. They are guaranteed to offer English-taught programs without any foreign language requirements.

Why should I study here?

Breda is a city in the west of the province of North Brabant in the Netherlands and has over 170,000 inhabitants. It is a very cozy and social city, partly due to the large number of students that live in the city. In the historical city center, you’ll find lots of interesting architecture and cultural delights. 

Breda is largely comprised of medieval buildings that have managed to remain intact to this day. For those individuals who may be major history enthusiasts, this would be the ideal destination for them. From Breda’s stunning castles to other major architectural monuments within the town, there are tons of interesting and fun activities to participate in and sites to see in the lovely little medieval town. 

The city’s main square is referred to as the Grote Markt. There you can discover the Church of Our Lady in the stunning Gothic style, along with an 18th-century city hall perfectly centered in town. The locals generally consider Breda the best in history, art, and shopping. It is a hub for culture in the Netherlands. With a population of less than two hundred thousand, the township of Breda is lively in comparison to the other cities of equivalent size in the surrounding areas. There are one hundred and twenty-two bars; eleven museums; one hundred and seventy restaurants; and one hundred and thirty-eight shops and boutiques in this relatively minuscule town. 

Most tourists have yet to see them all. With the vast number of cozy pubs and even the finer dining establishments that feature daily wine menus, there truly is something for every taste and budget available on the menu. The immense history and culture are absorbed deeply into the age-old and proven scrumptious recipes that are offered in Breda

Take a taste at one of the city’s small budget restaurants or go out on the town for a night of wining and dining. Either way, you are bound to have your cravings satisfied. Do not forget to also see the town’s Grote Market near the epicenter. It features all of the best boutique and village shopping experiences.
