Company profile

StudyPortals is the European Study Choice platform. It brings transparency for students to the wealth of study opportunities in Europe's unifying Higher Education Market. We are determined to stimulate and inform students on (inter)national study choice and help Universities with easier and more effective international marketing & recruitment.

StudyPortals started out a little over 3 years ago as MastersPortal. We are a spin-off from a couple of large international study associations that saw a massive information gap for finding international masters in Europe: was born and proved to be an overwhelming success. In 2009, the company was further professionalized by founding StudyPortals BV, a private enterprise, which now also publishes,, and The team consists of 20 people spread over 5 countries, with the centre of our operations in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

International Student Associations are still our key partners in further developing our services, as well as informing students about the assistance our portals can give them. Almost all large international student associations are our official partners, see the list here.

We currently have over 950 participating universities in 39 European countries. We cooperate with and are supported by the European Commission and many national institutes such as the DAAD (Germany), Nuffic (Netherlands), British Council (UK), SUI (Norway), OeAD (Austria), (Spain) and many more.

The following developments have driven the need and motivation to create the original

Europe is unifying their University systems: powered by the Bologna Process, 48 nations in Europe aim to unify their systems in a three tier system of Higher Education: Bachelor's; Master's and PhD. In 2010 the European Higher Education Area was supposed to come to its full effect.
Mobility is key: Students and Researchers are encouraged and supported to relocate themselves to another university in another city or country when moving to a next level.
We found that there is no comprehensive internet source where international degree programmes could be found and compared across the countries of Europe:

Despite the wave of newly created (master's) programmes, of which many with an international focus, there were very little information sources available and those existed were at best at national level.
Finding and comparing programmes in Europe is was time consuming and strenuous activity.
Through our investigation on the topic we have received many complaints from students in and outside Europe about this lack of information, which even left them to stay at home, or study in other continents, primarily the USA.
We consider international study experience extremely valuable to students´ development. Through our portals we try to fill the information gap that hinders students from finding and starting their international studies in Europe. On this mission, there´s still a lot of work to be done, but we are working enthusiastically and welcome cooperation with students and universities.
