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!
Volksuniversiteit Den Haag is the largest language institute of the region. We teach nearly 30 languages, usually on different levels and making use of methods specially developed for adult learners.
Learning languages is not only useful but also fun. There are no formal exams and certificates involved in our courses, apart from the Dutch as a foreign language courses. People attend our courses out of personal interest. This results in an informal atmosphere which greatly contributes to the fun of learning a new language.
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.

Hoe moet het nu verder, als Londen geen automatische partner meer kan zijn? Dreigt een negatief jurisdictieconflict in de rechtshandhaving? Op deze en dergelijke vragen ging prof. Strijards in tijdens zijn boeiende presentatie.
