The Hague Summer School

Do you want to make a difference to the world’s big issues? Are you interested in looking at global issues from an interdisciplinary perspective? The Hague Summer School in the Netherlands is a cutting-edge two or four week modular course, which looks at solving global issues by connecting the public and private sectors. We look at these ‘wicked’ problems through the eyes of engineers, social scientists, entrepreneurs  and human rights and security professionals.

The Hague University of Applied Sciences encourages everyone to invest in change. We want to train students in becoming world citizens to improve the world we live in. There is no better place to learn and practice world citizenship than in The Hague, the International City of Peace and Justice and the political, cultural heart of the Netherlands.
