Student Culture Centre Usva offers courses in eight disciplines and all courses are taught by professional instructors. Most courses are accessible to international students, and only a handful require proficiency in Dutch. Some courses, such as Acting Class, Drawing and Painting-beginner, Improv Comedy, Public Speaking and Creative writing, have English as the language of instruction. 

The course year is divided into three periods of 10 weeks each.

Trimester 1: September 26 up to December 2, 2016

Trimester 2: January 9 up to March 17, 2017

Timester 3: March 27 up to June 16, 2017

Because there will be several holidays during the third trimester, it is possible that the term might last two weeks longer.
