Would you like to know how it is like to study Political Science with a specialisation in International Relations and Organisations (IRO)? Then the ‘student for day’ events are just what you need.

You will spend the day with one of our talented student representatives. They will pick you up on the day of the event at 11:00 in the entrance hall of the Wijnhaven building (Turfmarkt 99, The Hague). The representative will lead the way to one of our seminar rooms, where you will listen to a short presentation about the program structure, what it is like to be an IRO student, to live in The Hague, what the classes and courses taught are like, how to master the application procedure, and possible career paths. You will be able to ask all your burning questions and all of them will be answered.

The representative will also show you around the Wijnhaven Campus. You will see the library, study areas, seminar rooms, computer rooms, the bike garage, the cafeteria and café, as well as the yard, where students have their lunches in summer and relax in the sun!

Then, it will be time for you to relax and regain some energy while eating the lunch that you brought from home or bought at the student cafeteria. Connect with the other participants and share your first impressions. After the break, you will meet again at 11:00, and your very first lecture starts! This semester we will start in Block 1 with the popular class Global History (on campus, in big Aula 2.01). The group will sit together in the lecture, and you can either just listen and observe, take notes, or even participate and ask questions to the Professor if you would like to.

The event ends after a last round of questions, shortly after 15:00

Afterwards, the representative will show you around the Wijnhaven Campus. You will see the library, study areas, seminar rooms, computer rooms, the bike garage, the cafeteria and café, as well as the yard, where students have their lunches in summer and relax in the sun!

Together you’ll walk to the seminar room, where you will listen to a short presentation about the program structure, what it is like to be an IRO student, to live in The Hague, what are the classes and courses taught, how to master the application procedure, and possible career paths. You will be able to ask all your burning questions and all of them will be answered. The event ends at 13:00.
