ACCESS Publications

ACCESS is very proud of our publications, which are written or selected by the volunteers and provide valuable information on many aspects of life in the Netherlands. Publications are in English and can be read online, found at various distribution points (such as Expat Centres), bought from our office or from our online shop. These publications reach the international community throughout the Netherlands and are even referred to by newcomers prior to their arrival.



Our free quarterly ACCESS Magazine contains a series of diverse articles of interest to the international community as well as What's On in the community.



The magazine is available in print at various locations, online, and is distributed through the intranets/networks of our partners and international companies/organisations and schools.
