Primary goal: To explore the historical, cultural, political, and economic forces that shape educational issues

  • 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 firsthand experience of Dutch culture via an in-depth exploration of education in The Netherlands
  • Enjoy day excursions such as rowing along the canals, walking tours of Amsterdam, & biking to the North Sea
  • Visit local schools in order to compare cultural differences in educational access and opportunity (including for students who learn differently)

Special considerations:

  • No real language barrier as most Dutch speak fluent English
  • Biking competency important for some outings but alternative transportation possible
