Houses for Expats: There are many homes in the Netherlands available for expats looking to
buy or rent, that is why we introduce this year at the Expat Fair ‘Houses for Expats’. Getting
an understanding of tenants’ rights and property law is a must. At the fair you will find
among others real estate agents, short stay residences, mortgage advisers, and notaries to
help you find answers to your questions regarding housing in the Netherlands.

Education for Expats: The Netherlands is committed to choice in Dutch education and expats find a
huge range of schools and universities in the Netherlands to consider when enrolling their child into
the Dutch education system, including numerous international schools of which some are also
subsidised. The Dutch school system, however, is quite unique and the choice can be confusing for
internationals. During the Expat Fair Amsterdam expats can meet several schools and universities
follow presentations to help them to understand the Netherlands education system. So they can
make their choice from the multitude of schools to enrol their child into the Netherlands school
