Testimonials

"The international composition made PPLE very enjoyable both by enriching my social life with people from all sorts of places and allowing me to learn from people with different cultural perspectives."
- Thomas Abma

"I really enjoyed my time at PPLE. The international and small scale environment helped me to look at problems from different angles and think critically. I feel like PPLE has given me a solid basis for the rest of my (academic) career and I am happy to have met so many amazing people during my time here."
- Eva Berger

"After completing the programme, I have learned to address issues from different perspectives and combine those perspectives to create a more interdisciplinary viewpoint. Moreover my time at PPLE has given me the opportunity to go to lots of interesting lectures, benefit from all the great teachers and especially meet great people which I happily call friends for life!
- Anne Craanen

"The past three years at PPLE have been a real adventure. Studying such a unique program, in the heart of Amsterdam has been incredible. Each new course was challenging and always different, but experiencing it with interesting individuals from different cultures was the best part. Class discussions proved to me over and over again, how my beliefs and arguments are heavily influenced by the environment I grew up in. The diversity which PPLE breeds and how it is used to educate us is one of the main things I will miss about PPLE."
- Michelle Stelea Popov
