About The Hague

THUAS is located right in the heart of The Hague, so you will get an all-round cultural experience, from galleries packed with Dutch masters to idyllic beaches and parks and buzzing nightclubs. 

The Hague is known as the International City of Peace, Justice and Security and is bursting with international legal institutions. Since 1913, the Peace Palace has been a centre of world justice, hosting the permanent Court of Arbitrations and the International Court of Justice. You'll also find the International Yugoslavia Tribunal, Europol and the International Criminal Court in The Hague, along with many other courts, tribunals and NGOs.

You will feel at home straightaway in The Hague. The city has all the benefits of a big city - the museums, restaurants and transport links - with a welcoming village feel. The Hague itself has many cultural highlights, including Mauritshuis and the Municipal Museum. The city also boasts excellent theatres and music venues.

About Holland

Because we are a Dutch university of applied sciences, you'll experience a hands-on, open-minded and interactive learning environment. We employ a problem-solving approach, just like the professional world, with exercises that nurture personal and leadership skills, like games, debates and group work.
