Classes takes place in Aruba with the exception of the course on International and European Tax Law and the Master Thesis. These will be done in the Netherlands. With regard to this course we offer as an additional service to attend classes of this course on Aruba with similar content as well. In that way we can facilitate you to get the same knowledge of the tutorials in case it might be hard to come over to the Netherlands at times. As coming over to the Netherlands for the exam might be considered costly and burdensome we also offer you the opportunity to take the exam in Bonaire instead.
