The Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR) is the oldest and largest of the Dutch academic institutes abroad. For more than a century, the KNIR has been committed to high-quality research and interdisciplinary education in the humanities, and served as a bridge between Dutch universities and the academic world in Italy.
The KNIR offers courses for students in every subject area and at every level, and provides scholarships and accommodation in Rome for outstanding students and researchers in a range of disciplines.
Housed in a beautiful stately villa and boasting a unique library collection and a diverse programme of conferences, lectures and cultural activities, the KNIR is truly the gateway to the Eternal City for Dutch students and researchers eager to immerse themselves in an international academic setting.
