To organise this trip, we need to make commitments and down payments in advance. By saying that you will participate in the trip, you are agreeing that we can take you into account for these. 

We cannot provide a cost estimate for your own activities during the trip as that is entirely up to personal preference. Do note that Zurich in general is a more expensive city than Delft.

    • Do you have a valid study visa for the Netherlands? Have that document with you at all times during the trip.
