All in a day’s work

Why would you want to travel to the other side of the world for a summer school? So many people, so many stories, so many things, just out there. See that world and experience. Talk, meet, sit, think. Be touched. 

We firmly believe that knowledge comes in various forms. We therefore focus on experience based learning, meaning that we balance academic and field knowledge. 
But you set the frame; the field of expertise, the balance between academic and applied science, the amount of program time and leisure time, et ceteras. We build together to the tailor made program you like. 

From landing to ending we are there, 24/7. We pick you up from the airport and we will take you back. We work with experienced student tour guides and often join the program ourselves to meet with the faculty, the students and our partners.
But our pre-fun starts already way before. We use social media like Facebook to start a platform weeks before landing in the Netherlands. We answer any questions and try to arrange any personal wishes from students. Such as concert tickets, a visit to a certain city, looking for cheap plane tickets or a rugby training with a Dutch rugby team.
