Primary Goal: To inform one's own educational objectives through an exploration and comparison of the Dutch educational system.

  • Study in the picturesque town of Leiden (a small, historically and culturally rich university town near Amsterdam)
  • Live in Webster University suites overlooking the harbor and windmills
  • Gain first-hand experience in Dutch schools and other educational venues
  • Enjoy day-excursions such as rowing along the canals, walking tours of Amsterdam, & biking to the North Sea

Special Considerations

  • Location is fixed in Leiden (multiple day trips, but no overnights)
  • Predictable daily schedule (class in the mornings, activities in the afternoons)
  • No real language barrier as most Dutch speak fluent English
  • Biking competency important for some outings
