Nobody who comes to Amsterdam wants to leave. One of the world’s safest and most charming cities, and home to some of the greatest troves of art in the world, Amsterdam will be your classroom for six incredible days of learning and discovery. You will live in a hostel in the center of the city, right next to gorgeous Vondelpark and the city’s amazing rings of canals. From the Rijksmuseum to the Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House, Compass faculty and local Navigators will help you explore a wide swath of European history, art and culture that you’ll never forget.
Capitalism was born in Amsterdam. The city was also home to the northern Renaissance. Your Compass core class, The Needle, will guide you through the literature, museums and cityscapes of Amsterdam. Along the way, you’ll also discover that no people are more open and friendly than those who call this cosmopolitan city home.
