CREA courses

CREA offers a wide range of over 600 courses per year and a large part of those courses are open to non-Dutchies. Meet new friends and learn new skills at the same time!

Courses season 2022/2023

Most CREA courses run in blocks of 10 weeks. You can start a CREA course at 3 times: end of September 2022 (block 1/autumn), mid January 2023 (block 2/winter) and end of April 2023 (block 3/early spring). There are exceptions like the week courses (mostly during summer) and day courses (1 day). Check the course for more info.
