Program Overview

Hanze (UAS) started in the summer of 2011 with the first Summer School program called ‘Doing Business in Europe’. The program has proven to be a great success and was put together by several schools providing a wide variety of courses. This was the start of a new ambition: offer a Summer School in Groningen, the student city of the Netherlands!
Our main goal is to provide more and diverse academic program in the future. Attending Summer School at Hanze (UAS) offers you a new experience in life while earning European Credits!

Honours Summer School Holocaust Remembrance

The purpose of this new summer school is to provide students with the opportunity to collaborate with an international cohort to study Holocaust history. Students will then use these “lessons from the past” to examine, investigate, and critique problems in today’s societies (social inequality, discrimination, refugees) in order to formulate a final project to convey these lessons to a target audience.

In this international project, students will work in small teams comprised of both their Dutch and US peers. Excursions to Amsterdam (Anne Frank Home), Former Concentration Camp Bergen Belsen and Berlin (Holocaust Museum) will be part of this summer institute.

Accommodation and Meals

Accommodation We provide all international students with adequate and fully-furnished student housing. The student houses are located all over Groningen. We generally try to house students from one course in the same accommodation. Students from other courses might be housed together in the same building as well, which is a great opportunity to meet international students from other disciplines. When applying for a Summer School program, the Hanze Summer School will automatically provide you with a room in a student house.

Hotel or hostel The accommodation provided offers the basic necessities. If you want to stay in a more luxurious environment, it is also possible to stay in a hotel or hostel in the city. For more information on this, please visit our website.
