To make sure that you have a careless period of study in the Netherlands, Leiden University requires their international students to get an insurance package that covers preexisting conditions. Leiden University can recommend the tailor made ICS Complete+ insurance policy for both non EU and for EU students. As the insurance is a package deal, apart from Medical costs, you are also insured for Home contents and baggage, Liability, Accidents, Extra costs and 24/7 emergency assistance helpline and Legal aid!
As one of HOPweek its main partners, Aon arranges student insurance for new (international) students coming to The Hague. Together with the Warm Welcome Service of Leiden University, they can help you in making all the needed arrangements before starting your time as a student in The Hague.
F45, the Australian boutique fitness studio that is sweeping the globe! They specialize in (functional) high intensity interval training (HIIT), the method preferred by coaches, trainers and professional athletes to transform bodies by stripping fat, building lean muscle, improving overall conditioning and replacing the traditional “big box” gyms which often leave members guessing.
F45 is not just about amazing results, its about the community – a fitness family like no other. Their members know each other in the studio. They laugh, discuss, dance and most of all they enjoy their time together motivating and learning from each other. Daily F45 sessions (English only) are only 45 minutes, and their workouts are scientifically designed for each member, so no more guessing. The most common feedback they receive is about the positive vibes in the studio and how F45 training has changed so many lives.
