An Open Day is a great way to visit our campus; get acquainted with current students, lecturers, and meet our team of study advisors. You can also attend presentations by our lecturers. They will introduce you to our interdisciplinary and intercultural vision of what we like to call Global Citizenship. You can pick up an overview of our courses and projects, speak with a foreign language teacher, find out about Work Placement opportunities and extra-curricular activities, and map out options for your foreign exchange.

Trial Study Day
Sign up for a Trial Study to get a full preview of European Studies. This is your chance to catch a first glimpse of how ES readies you for an international work environment. You can follow interdisciplinary lectures on the public and private sector – and how they work together to solve problems. You will get a skills workshop on research and communication skills, including training in rhetoric and negotiation. Finally you will also get a taste of the international classroom you can expect at ES, where all classes have a mix of nationalities, different backgrounds and different perspectives.
Student for a day
Shadow a current European Studies student and experience what it is like to study at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. You will join discussions with existing workgroups and attend useful lectures. Lectures, for example, that could help you decide whether your main interest lies in international policy-making, or would you be more interested in writing a business plan to help a company like Coca Cola better its market position in Latin America.
