Netherlands-Asia Honours Summer School

The yearly summer programme organized by the NAHSS offers a group of talented multidisciplinary undergraduate students the chance to become fully aware of and able to capture the opportunities that arise on the Asian continent for the Netherlands. The summer programme consist of the following three components:

  • Academic programme; our students participate in an international summer school at an outstanding Asian university in Beijing, Chengdu, Hong Kong or Taipei for five weeks.
  • Business programme; they visit multinational corporations in both the Netherlands and Asia. Next to that, the participants conduct research and work on a project for one of our appreciated partners.
  • Cultural programme; the NAHSS offers a Chinese language and culture course during the preparatory trail in the Netherlands. Beside that, the so-called buddy programme links our students one-on-one to an Asian student for cultural insights and excursions during their stay in Asia.

The business and cultural week in Shanghai (the final week of the NAHSS programme in Asia) combines these three factors by facilitating our students to work on their project and academically structure their research, visiting Asian and Dutch companies and organizing cultural excursions. Next to that, all participants gather together in Shanghai this week, which stimulates them to exchange their experiences among each other to complete their Asia-experience.
