The Netherlands Education Group is the joint project of Stichting Libertas International and Utrecht Consulting Group. That’s why you see the address of our website – uconsulting.nl – where “u” comes from Utrecht – the city where we are based.
Stichting Libertas International started its work in 2010 and since then provides quality educational programs for participants from around the globe. From the beginning, we have decided to open our programs for participants from all countries and we already had people from more than 40 countries visiting our programs in Amsterdam, Moscow and other places!
Our main activity is providing short-term courses in the field of business and personal development. But in addition to that we offer the programs that help for the development of career in other ways – we have the course on the Career opportunities where we visit companies and learn about career opportunities in those companies; we have a course on Study in Europe where we tell our participants about different educational programs, scholarships and give them tips on how to apply for scholarships and be accepted; we have the Study Visit to UN-Headquarters in Vienna where we visit the organization and learn about its work and career opportunities at UN; we have a lot of other projects in various areas. Most of our programs are with an open call – we publish the event and people who are interested in are welcome to apply. But we organize the programs for organizations and groups as well. Usually, we are ready to organize a course for a group of 5 or more people who are interested in a particular field.
Formal education – the education you receive at school or at university – often can be great and provide you with great knowledge and skills that are necessary for a professional career. However, it happens that graduates even from the best universities are missing some key soft skills that are needed to become a good specialist in a chosen field! We established the Netherlands Education Group to close this gap! Our aim is to provide short-term courses that develop specific soft skills which are usually not taught at universities but still have crucial value for the future career!
Our main venues for the courses – Amsterdam and Moscow but sometimes we organize courses in Vienna and other locations. We have our own modern training center that can host students and where classes can be taught. For our courses in Amsterdam and other locations, we use the venues of our partners.
Stichting Libertas International was founded in 2010 in Amsterdam. In 2016 we moved to Utrecht. We are registered in the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KvK – Kamer van Koophandel) and our registration number is 51577453.
