Student associations


Amsterdam is home to large international community and multiple universities, so there are associations and (sport) clubs for everyone. The following associations are not affiliated to a particular faculty and are therefore the ideal place to get to know other students.

  • ESN Inholland Diemen hosts activities for all international students in Diemen.
  • ASVA offers student services such as housing mediation and cheap bikes.
  • AEGEE the largest trans-national, interdisciplinary student organisation in Europe (site in Dutch).
  • AIESEC us a global youth leadership movement.
  • ISMA is organised by Dutch Christians for students, academics and researchers.
  • SIB is an association for those interested in international relations.


Because Inholland Delft shares the building and facilities with Delft University of Technology, you'll benefit from all that the large international student community has to offer. Some of the bigger international student associations are AEGEE-Delft and ESN Delft.

Study Association

Aeronautical Engineering has its own study association, V.S.V. Sipke Wynia. They organise the introduction days and many social and educational activities throughout the year. Highlight of the year is the America Tour, a two week study trip to the United States. During this tour, a lot of different aviation related companies, such as NASA, US Air Force, Embraer and Boeing, are visited in a wide variety of cities.


Haarlem is the right spot for a great student life. There's plenty to do, whether you're looking for the best beer or the best bar to dance. ESN Inholland Haarlem is the international association which organises fun social events and cultural trips.

Both international courses in Haarlem have their own study associations. They often organise guest lectures, company visits and seminars, but also parties to meet fellow students.

Erasmus Student Network

Being a student in the Netherlands is an amazing experience – there’s no doubt about that. But as a new student, there’s so much going on that it can sometimes get a little overwhelming. That's where joining an association can help: from organising social gatherings and buddy systems to arranging fun-filled days out, the associations are a great way to make the most out of your time here.

The Erasmus Student Network (ESN) is the biggest student association in Europe. The goal of ESN is to help students adapt to Dutch life by organising social and cultural activities and by giving students the chance to meet new people. Some of the activities on offer include ice-skating, potluck dinners, city trips and nights out.
