There are two elements critical to learning: theory and practice.
While lectures, tutorials, and texts will provide you with substantial amounts of theory on the nature of politics, economics, and culture, the BASIS Academic Committee prides itself in connecting students to theories in practice. This is achieved in multiple ways throughout the academic year.
The BASIS Academic Committee organizes various guest lecturer events, excursions, competitions, and simulations. These include, but are not limited to, embassy visits, NGO excursions, and speech competitions. These events allow students to actively engage, view, and interpret knowledge taught in university in real-life environments. Whether this means speaking with the Korean Ambassador to the Netherlands, the BASIS Academic Committee brings the practical world of International Studies at the students’ fingertips.
