Student life

The Hague is the international city of peace and justice, home to many international organisations, embassies and multinational corporations but also a fun student city filled with music, cafes, museums and the most popular beach in the Netherlands!

"Studying in the Hague is an unique experience! Here, not only you can find lovely canals and modern urban architectures, but also an international atmosphere. Dutch professionals and expats from around the world make it a lively city to explore."

''I love the mix of high rise and historic buildings in The Hague. There is a lot of greenery around the city and the beach is nearby, which is great.''

The fact that I can study in the Peace Palace library and do research in places where history was made in international law is amazing. I cannot believe that I can do that on a daily basis. We are located closely to the political center, so we often see prime-minister Mark Rutte pass by on his bike on this way to work. Furthermore, you get a lot of opportunities to meet important people, because they visit The Hague. Recently some students got the chance to meet Ban Ki-moon, secretary-general of the United Nations.

The Hague student city
