Would you like to broaden your horizon without leaving the Netherlands? Then the ICOMOS Shared Built Heritage Student Help Desk might have just the right opportunity for you. The Student Help Desk offers you options to study historical architecture and town planning, with or without an exchange programme. What about a heritage study in or about the Netherlands Antilles, Aruba or former (Dutch) colonies such as Suriname, Ghana, South Africa, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, and Taiwan?
Within the study of Dutch architecture and town planning the traditions of the colonial conquerors in these regions is a much neglected topic. The Student Help Desk, an initiativerganisation in which all Dutch faculties of architecture and arts, the Cultural Heritage Agency and ICOMOS the Netherlands participate, aims to change this.
