4828.jpg The particular appeal of this program is its multi-disciplinary approach to the MSc in Crisis and Security Management. Having a legal background, it was important for me to get different perspectives on this topic. Current issues in the field are addressed from a public administration/management perspective but the broad choice of classes also offer the opportunity to gain insights into legal, political, or social aspects of these phenomena, both at the domestic, as well as the international level. But not only the academic staff is specialized in different domains, but also the students come from diverse backgrounds and countries making the degree an extremely enriching experience.

Another perk of this program is definitely its location. Entirely taught on The Hague Campus of Leiden University it offers a great opportunity for students or recent graduates to pursue a career in one of the many international organizations based in the city or yet private companies in proximity of these institutions. The lecturers are particularly easy to approach and always open to give feedback on your work or give assistance on other academic matters.

The Hague as a student city

The Hague is a great city for international students. Not only is it the home to numerous international organizations but it also is a great melting pot of cultures where students from all over the world come together. As there is a lot more to student-life than studying or networking The Hague offers a wide choice of museums, music halls, restaurants and bars.

The city’s vicinity to the sea offers nice opportunities for sport activities or invites for long walks along the beach or through the dunes. The infrastructure and bikes make it easy to get around and discover the different parts of the city. Having lived in different neighborhoods I recommend to discover the unique features of each one of them. Within an hourly train ride of Amsterdam and Rotterdam The Hague is well located to undertake daytrips and discover other parts of the Netherlands.
