You are here

Imagine learning not only while you’re sitting in class, but also while exploring the Van Gogh Museum, trying your first Stroopwafel, or on a bike ride for daily errands. This is what it's like to study abroad in the Netherlands!

With us, you'll take learning outside the classroom as you visit world-famous sites and immerse yourself in the relaxed and progressive culture, making the Netherlands a perfect host country for study abroad.

To top it all off, our excursions take you throughout the region to explore sites such as the vibrant countryside tulip fields and the stately streets of The Hague. What’s not to like about studying abroad in The Netherlands?

Amsterdam

As the capital and largest city in the Netherlands, Amsterdam—with its picturesque canals, open-minded residents, and amazing arts scene—is very easy to get around in (especially by bike).

Top places to see in Amsterdam
  • Van Gogh Museum

    The Van Gogh Museum has attracted more than 2 million visitors since it opened in 1973. The museum boasts the largest collection in the world of the artist's work. It is separated into five chronological sections of van Gogh's career, such as "Early Life," "Paris," etc.

  • Anne Frank House

    This extraordinary museum is not only dedicated to Anne Frank, but also the millions of people who lost their lives in the Holocaust. Frank's House, the "Secret Annex," is preserved as it was when she lived here many years ago; many of her posters still hang on the wall.

  • Boat Tours

    The Amsterdam boat tours are incredibly informative and reasonably priced. There are several companies that offer different tours: jazz cruise, night cruise, architecture cruise, red-light cruise, and more. The tour, which is presented in multiple languages, points out main museums and sights.
