SAIS: Learning by doing with a band of adventurers

Before coming to SAIS, Nicolaas Van Vliet had helped respond to a cholera epidemic in Haiti, built solar latrines in Chile and reported on Dutch foreign aid at the United Nations.

In SAIS he sees the chance "to gain the practical tools needed to help build new models for sustainable development in underserved countries."

A dual Dutch-U.S. citizen, Nick is concentrating in International Development and International Finance, spending his first year at SAIS Europe in Bologna. In the video below, he discusses his experience so far at SAIS and what he feels sets it apart.

Kudos to SAIS Europe students Brittney Johnson and Kia Guarino for producing the video.
