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.

The Dutch Museum You Can't Miss

by Makai

In line a man, not older than twenty-five, holds a royal blue lantern in his left hand. It’s almost 3 p.m. on a Friday. A girl in sunglasses walks by with a packet of french fries slopped in mayonnaise, the Dutch classic. It’s a surprisingly warm day in Amsterdam, as is illustrated by the old man biking by in nothing more than a metallic silver speedo.

Don't Make Me Leave

by Makai

As terrifying as it is to admit, here in Amsterdam we’re reaching the end of our study abroad experience. With only about one more month to go, it’s impossible not to let your thoughts spiral out of control a bit. Did I do everything I wanted? Have I wasted my time? Where do I still need to go? Will I ever see any of these wonderful friends I’ve made again?

A New Way to Travel

by Makai

    When you plan on studying abroad, more likely than not one of the main things you’re thinking about is travel. Whether it’s within different parts of whichever country you pick or somewhere different entirely, studying abroad is seen by many as a opportunity to visit the places you dreamed of while growing up in the States. Admittedly this was a big reason I wanted to study abroad as well, having never been to Europe before now.

At the Movies

by Makai

    I’ve found myself at a movie theater near the center of Amsterdam twice recently. I always get very into going to movies with my mom when I’m home for the summer. Usually I can’t follow through on all the trailers I planned on seeing that upcoming fall because of school stress but I’m happy to say that that hasn’t happened yet here. It’s a nice, familiar pocket to visit.

How to Grow a Home

by Makai

    It’s hard to explain to someone else what it feels like to be abroad. I’m constantly in awe of the space around me. Sucked into these new cultures but somehow simultaneously overstimulated to the point where I can barely tell you what I do every day. I’ve been here for over a month now, and while some of the novelty of the city has begun to ware off I find myself still so taken by the city and it’s people.
