Turning great plans into great deeds.
The ISO (Dutch National Student Association, or ‘Interstedelijk Studentenoverleg’) is the biggest nationwide student organisation of the Netherlands and represents the common interest of the almost 750.000 students in the Dutch higher education system. The ISO is the regular conversation partner of, amongst others, the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences, political parties and the sector associations of the research universities and universities of applied sciences.
The executive body of the ISO consists of an executive board and fourteen employees. The board, consisting of five fulltime board members, changes every year at the start of summer. Employees are usually active for a period of two years.
The ISO stands for the ambitious and critical student who is actively engaged with his own education. We are also there for students who are working on making these core values their own.
