NAHSS Summer School

A life-changing and unique experience with a fantastic group.

Netherlands-Asia Summer School

The NAHSS is a unique collaboration connecting a variety of Dutch universities, four ministries and more than a dozen Dutch and Asian multinationals. The NAHSS gives you an opportunity to experience Southeast Asia on an academic, business, and cultural level through, among other things, a consultancy project and a trip to Asia with an international group of students.

Each year, the NAHSS grants a group of 70-100 ambitious students of all disciplines and Dutch universities the opportunity to participate in this dynamic programme, preparing participating students for a future with Southeast Asia and China as world powers. We want to create a truly global, inclusive and diverse programme and therefore will not only invite Dutch but also English-speaking students to join us.

NAHSS 2024 - Programme Structure:

The programme starts in March with a Kick-Off weekend, in which the selected students will get to know each other. This marks the starts of the consultancy project (5-10 hours per week) from March until June. The preparatory track in the Netherlands consist of conducting a consultancy project for one of our partners, a Masterclass, Inhousedays at our partners, lectures from Southeast Asia and China experts, soft skills training by for instance PwC and McKinsey, and cultural activities such as the optional Chinese lessons.

The NAHSS ends with a three-week summer programme in July-August in which the students will have the opportunity to delve, among other things, into the central theme ‘Navigating Change’, work on case studies with social impact, visit leading multinationals, attend guest lectures by CEOs and Asian experts, and explore the culture.
