Study Abroad In The Netherlands!

Are you looking for a unique experience? You might know that the Netherlands is famous for its tulips, cheese and windmills, but there is a lot more to see and experience! An exchange to study abroad in the Netherlands offers WEP exchange students the unique opportunity to experience one of the more fascinating countries in Europe. Explore a country below sea level and see towns and cities surrounded by windmills, castle walls and canals.


Upon arrival in the Netherlands WEP students spend the first week of their program with other exchange students in an orientation week. You will be introduced to the Dutch tradition of cycling and the use of a bicycle is included in all programs! As there is no language requirement for the program this week will concentrate on the Dutch language as well as their culture.


Each semester WEP’s partner in the Netherlands organises a trip that is included in the program fee. These trips include activities such as a trip to Utrecht (ice skating) or Amsterdam (hike ‘n’ seek and inline skating in the famous Vondelpark). In November a trip is also offered to Paris for an extra cost.

One very famous traditional festivity in the Netherlands is ‘Sinterklaas’ on 5 December. It celebrates a man from Spain, who visits the country every year and brings the children lots of presents. Another traditional festivity is Queens Day or ‘Koninginnedag’ in honor of the Queen’s birthday, where cities, towns and villages across the country hold street fairs, games, parades and flea markets.

Does this sound like the best program for you? Can you imagine yourself living the life of teenager, living with a local family in the Netherlands? If so, keep on reading to find out more about your options to study abroad in the Netherlands!
