European Leadership University (ELU) is a fully recognised European university established in 2015 with the official decree and approval by the Ministry of Education and Culture in Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
We have received Institutional accreditation in 2016 and achieved full programme accreditation in 2017 by the Higher Education Planning, Evaluation, Accreditation and Coordination Council, Nicosia which is represented at The European Association for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ENQA), the umbrella organisation for recognised government accreditation agencies in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA).
We are an international higher education institution and not a local Dutch university. We are constantly working to achieve further accreditation both in the Netherlands and Europe as a part of our international quality assurance goals.
We have chosen Amsterdam as our employability hub as it is one of the top 3 fastest growing economic regions in Europe with more than a hundred thousand new jobs in three years.
We are a partner of the Amsterdam Economic Board and an active member of its Corporate Network Council allowing us to connect our students with potential employers in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. Additionally we work in partnership with the Amsterdam Institute of Technology, which is a recognised sponsor for IND in Netherlands to facilitate employment opportunities for our students.
