ounded in 1636, and home to more than 30,000 students, Utrecht is one of Europe's finest universities. The University's classroom facilities and library are located in historic buildings in the city center. All participants will be housed at the Apollo Hotel Utrecht City Centre, in the heart of Utrecht, just a few minutes walk from the train station, classroom buildings and library. Students are housed in shared double rooms, with color TV, bath and shower, and direct dial phone. The hotel provides a daily buffet breakfast and Internet access in each room at no extra charge.

Courses are taught in the mornings and early afternoons, four days a week, with one day of each session used for a field trip to international institutions at The Hague or Brussels and the last Friday of each session for exams. The schedule provides time for class preparation, as well as socializing and travel to nearby cities, such as Amsterdam, Berlin, and Paris. In addition to visits to the international institutions in The Hague and Brussels, a variety of social events and sightseeing trips are offered as part of the program.

Scheduled activities include canal boat excursions, kayak trips, bicycle tours, and outings to the beach
