Language programme in Vught

Located in the outskirts of 's-Hertogenbosch (or Den Bosch), about 30 km North from Eindhoven and not too far from the Belgian border, Vught is located in the South of the Netherlands. Its breathtaking natural environment gives students a taste of the high quality of life the town's inhabitants lead.

A 15-20-minutes bike ride (about 5 km) will take you to Den Bosch's city historical centre, which has fascinating architecture on display like St. John Cathedral, Morian House and City Hall. The town's calm and friendly environment makes those coming from outside of Vught instantly feel at home. There is so much to explore: from the market square through the labyrinthe old streets, visitors are charmed by the Old Town and canal network called 'de Binnendieze'.

Vught and Den Bosch also have great food and cuisine on offer, and while not as big as other Dutch cities, you'll never be without something to occupy yourself with. It comes as no surprise that Elsevier magazine ranked Vught as the best place to live in the Netherlands.
