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!

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. What do you need for online lessons?  Read more here.

Employees, teachers and students of Volksuniversiteit Den Haag need to stick to the corona-virus protocol. Our class rooms were redesigned so that you can keep 1.5 metres distance and attend the courses safely. In general areas such as halls, corridors and toilets wearing a face mask is compulsory.  Read more here.
