NHL Stenden campus Meppel

Meppel is the most intimate of our campuses. It hosts the unique course in International Teacher Education for Primary Schools (ITEPS) and International Teacher Education for Secondary Schools (ITESS). Despite its intimate size and small student body (230), Meppel is highly international, with students and staff from a variety of countries.

An informal, warm and welcoming town

If you feel at home in a small-town setting, you will certainly feel right at home in Meppel, with its numerous parks and canals. The quality of the student life in Meppel can compete with any of its larger counterparts in the central part of the Netherlands.

In your spare time

Meppel has numerous dining spots, theatres and cinemas. The Lord Nelson dance club is a popular spot on weekends, along with the Ogterop Art Theatre. In addition, there are regular events, such as the Canal Festival, which is worth a visit, featuring live music and Canal Cruises.
