Student life

Most ISS students have never been to the Netherlands before. Others may have only limited knowledge of life in this country.

We are aware that some of you may feel a bit lost at the beginning of your stay here. In order to help you adapt quickly to life in the Netherlands, at the beginning of each academic year we organize a special introduction programme (for MA students only).

Throughout the year social and cultural activities are organized by our dedicated Welfare Office. Activities include a sports day, a Dutch evening, an International Food Fair, excursions, movies and performances in the ISS building.
