Teaching in The Hague is firmly based on research. Alongside bachelor’s and master’s programmes, the University provides school children, professionals and others with an interest the opportunity to develop.

The University aims to expand its range of programmes in The Hague. The plans are described in the strategy 2020-2030 and the implementation agenda 2022-2023. The programmes that are offered fit within the five main themes of Campus The Hague:

  1. International law, peace and security
  2. Globalisation and international relations
  3. Politics, public administration and public finance
  4. Urban issues
  5. Health and patient care

Developments in society have a direct impact on our teaching and our teaching will eventually have a major impact on society. Students can already contribute during their studies, for example with projects for the community (service learning) together with social institutions such as municipalities and schools, and by paying attention to social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
