Study Abroad in the Netherlands Reviews

  • "I made lasting friendships that I can confidently say that I will keep for a long time. I stepped outside of my comfort zone while knowing that there is a support system, whether it be the friends that I made or the CIEE staff that will be there to help me. I learned so much about public health, not only in the Netherlands, but the field of study in general and may decide to pursue it as a major."

    Wen Long Y., Yale University
  • "Lots of fun and very educational."

    Nimit G., University of Arkansas
  • "They did a good job of keeping us busy enough during orientation to facilitate friendships and sustained their involvement throughout the program which was nice."

    Alma P., Wesleyan University
  • "There is a lot of freedom to explore and adventure independently, which allows students to be interested in their own fields and follow those interests. While there are some structured trips and a regular class and classroom, it's nice to have some guidance, but also freedom to continue in certain areas of interest."

    Jillian M., Wofford College
