Leiden University also has a location in The Hague. Six of the University's seven faculties are now active at Campus The Hague.
Teaching and research in The Hague closely reflect the profile of the city – city of peace, justice and security – and the many other opportunities offered by the city. Our teaching and research at Campus The Hague centre on four key themes:
The Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs is located exclusively in The Hague, as are our Leiden University College and International Studies, the biggest programme taught by the Faculty of Humanities.
The town is beautiful and there are lovely restaurants and bars. The university is highly ranked and has a good academic level. The exams are quite regular, however you get used to this and learn to just study throughout the course of the whole year. The teachers vary in how interactive they are; some give you extensive feedback where others don't tend to interact much...
The university isn't state of the art, but also not bad. The facilities are fine, the subteachers are not always fully educated to teach what they are teaching, that is a big con.
