Studying in The Hague

For our students, studying in The Hague can make a big difference. The Hague is proud to be known as the international city of peace and justice.

 With the presence of the government, parliament, ministries, national and international courts, countless European institutions, embassies and companies, The Hague has a prestigious international stature. 

The Hague offers a broad choice of appealing academic programmes in an international environment. Students broaden their view of the world and quickly develop a substantial network of international contacts. But at the same time, The Hague is a compact city, where just about everything is close to everything else. What students learn during their studies they can often put into practice straight away in the international environment offered by The Hague. The teaching is supplemented by guest lectures given by highly respected professionals who work in and around The Hague and by the many opportunities for internships offered by the city.

All our programmes in The Haue have their own study association. These associations organise study trips, lectures and numerous social activities. This means that students can quickly build up a group of friends based on their stidy programme, and they start to build a network that will stand them in good stead for the rest of their lives. 

The Hague is an attractive place to live.  There are good reasons why it is rated as one of the most attractive student cities in world rankings.  There is so much going on in The Hague.  The Hague has eleven kilometres of sandy beach within cycling distance of the historic city centre. This is the perfect place to take a breather.

The Hague is a fantastic place to combine studying with a lively social life, personal development and an investment in building your future.
