Prinsjesfestival & Prinsjesdag: overview of events organised in and around the University in The Hague

The third Tuesday of September is getting closer and that means ‘Prinsjesdag’ (Little Prince Day) and the opening of our own faculty’s academic year. We have created an overview of all the events that have been organised for this ‘The Hague holiday’ in and around the University.

Monday 19 September

Prinsjesdag (Little Prince Day) for Non-Dutchies

A special programme for international students to help prepare them for this day. A guide will take you on a tour past several royal locations in the centre of The Hague. This will help you, as an international student, to be up to speed with local traditions and ready to participate in the start of the political year in the Netherlands on Tuesday!
