The new course season has started! What challenge are you up to?
WELCOME TO VOLKSUNIVERSITEIT DEN HAAG
Volksuniversiteit Den Haag is an institute for adult education which offers all adults opportunities for further development and training in languages, arts, culture, science and creativity. The course programme does not aim for formal qualifications or official certificates, but offers possibilities to spend free time in a useful way. Volksuniversiteit is open for everyone, regardless of previous training, age, religious, cultural or political background. For most of our courses a basic knowledge of Dutch is required, with the exception of the courses in Dutch as a foreign language. Visit Volksuniversiteit and enjoy lifelong learning!
COURSE PROGRAMME AUTUMN 2021
The new programme for courses starting from September is online and enrolment has started. Most of our courses are held on location. If in case of force majeure (such as a lockdown due to government measures) the courses cannot continue on location, they will be transferred to online lessons as soon as possible. A number of courses are only offered online. This is stated in the course info.
Employees, teachers and students of Volksuniversiteit Den Haag need to stick to the corona-virus protocol. Read more here.
Language courses are an imoprtant part of the course programme of Volksuniversiteit Den Haag. Would you like tot learn Spanish, English or French? Or perhaps even Chinese or Arabic? We offer about 25 different languages. Levels and teaching methods vary per course, but having fun is always a priority.
Art can touch and shock us and builds bridges between different cultures. On the course programme of Volksuniversiteit Den Haag, you'll find film, literature, architecture, painting and music, both in courses and lectures. We sometimes combine an introductory lecture with a visit to a museum or film.
Who are we? Why are we on this planet and in this universe? Why do we act as we do? How do I get to know myself? How do I keep developing myself? The courses in the category Man & Society try to find answers to these questions.
Experienced teachers help to acquire insight into historical and philosophical movements and bring out the best in yourself, including your career.
For some, working with the computer, iPad and smartphone is a breeze. For the other person, it is a challenge to deal with this well. We regularly offer novice users various courses to learn how to use the computer. For the skilled user, it is possible, for example, to learn to create a website.
Being creative is relaxing and gives new energy and inspiration. Both for beginners and experienced creatives, the Volksuniversiteit Den Haag offers a nice range of courses. This way you can (better) learn to draw and paint, goldsmithing, writing or photographing.
The City Academy The Hague started out in 2009 and provides intensive courses in art subjects for ambitious students. The training consists of three years of drawing & painting lessons. You have classes once a week (on Saturdays) and are taught by different, experienced teachers.
Volksuniversiteit Den Haag restarted music education in cultural centre Zuid57 with Music School Zuid57.
In small groups you can learn to play popular instruments such as piano, guitar and singing. Most courses (both evening and daytime) consist of 14 or 16 weekly lessons which are held in the music studios of Zuid57.
If you prefer to take lessons (alone or with someone else) in an instrument which is not in our regular package, please contact us and we will try to arrange a teacher.
