The first contacts with the Yemen College of Middle Eastern Studies were established during a visit of a group of UvA-students to Yemen in the second semester of 2005-2006, after which the involved institutions agreed to establish an exchange program. In reply to the earlier Dutch visit, a group of Yemeni students visited the Netherlands in the first semester of 2007-2008, thereby completing the first student exchange between the participating institutions. Exchanges have been realized each year with new groups of students until 2011. Currently the Yemen Program is temporarily suspended, due to the unrest in Yemen. We hope to resume our activities as soon as circumstances allow us.
