College Night 2023 : EducationUSA / Fulbright The Netherlands’ college & university fair

What: College Night

When: Monday 25 September 2023 (18:00-21:00)

Where: Jaarbeurs Utrecht

Netherlands College Night is an annual event organised by EducationUSA and the Fulbright Commission, and the successor to the annual fair initiated in 2012 and organized until 2019* by Ivy Circle, Fulbright Commission/EducationUSA, the U.S. Consulate General in Amsterdam, and (host) the International School of Amsterdam in Amstelveen. During the COVID pandemic, the fair was held twice as a virtual (online) fair for the Benelux, in collaboration with partner fairs in Brussels & Luxembourg.

College Night is for students (and their parents) from 125+ International (Baccalaureate) and bilingual secondary schools, as well as 650+ regular secondary schools (Dutch VWO & HAVO) in the Netherlands, who want to know more about undergraduate education opportunities in the USA. At the fair, students will have the opportunity to talk to university representatives and learn more about standardized testing, scholarship opportunities and visa applications.

*The last fair organised by Ivy Circle in 2019 drew 200 students and parents from 31 secondary schools in the Netherlands as far as Emmen and Eindhoven, who came to meet admissions representatives & alumni from 35 colleges & universities! See details here, as well as photos.


Full details, including participating colleges & universities, are available on the Fulbright The Netherlands website.


Admission is free. To register please go to the Fulbright The Netherlands website.


To enable you to make the most out of your European recruitment, the Netherlands fair is part of a coordinated schedule including EducationUSA’s Regional Forum and its fairs in London, Brussels and Luxembourg.
