Students: Register for the World Class Cohort before September 24th!

Are you interested in topics such as peace, justice and international relations? Do you want to learn more about The Hague, the international city of Peace & Justice? And are you interested in getting to know other students from different universities in The Hague? 

If “yes!” we suggest registering for the World Class The Hague Program. 

World Class The Hague is a one-year program for students in The Hague interested in international relations, the peace and justice sector, and the international community in The Hague. You will learn more about what The Hague has to offer as a global leader in the field of peace and justice and the opportunities for development in The Hague.  

From October to June, the program offers unique lectures, from a variety of professions. Former speakers include, H.E. King Abdullah II of Jordan, H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon (former Secretary-General of the United Nations), Madeleine Albright (former Secretary of State of the US), and Frederik Willem de Klerk (former President of South Africa). Following each lecture, there is a networking reception for students to get to know one another, and the speaker.  

Additionally, World Class offers extra events that range from guided tours at international institutions, city tours, informal debates, access to interesting conferences or other events, and networking drinks. 

The World Class The Hague program is conducted in English and is open to students from all backgrounds, nationalities, and study programs within The Hague. Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a prestigious certificate signed by The Hague’s Mayor and Deputy-Mayor for International Affairs.
