SAIL and FION are umbrella organisations that represent thirteen international education institutes in The Netherlands.

The SAIL Foundation, established in 1996, is the umbrella organisation of five specialised Dutch centres of higher learning, all of which are geared towards capacity building, education, research, and advisory services. The Dutch acronym SAIL stands for ‘Stichting Institutes for Postgraduate International Education in the Netherlands’.

These five institutes provide post-graduate training and education in the English language in a variety of sectors and subjects to mid-career professionals from developing and transitional countries.

The international education institutes support organisations abroad to develop their own capacity and institution in carrying out such training and educational programmes.

The institutes also engage themselves in research and advisory services in their areas of expertise.

Students from India regularly attend courses in the SAIL institutes.
