Spend a semester or even a whole year studying in Amsterdam! VU University Amsterdam offers about 300 Bachelor’s courses in English. At some faculties, Master’s courses are also open for exchange students.
We offer exchange programmes for students from partner universities for one (5 months) or two semesters (10 months). The first step is to contact the International Office of your home university/faculty, since they must formally nominate you.
Once your application has been accepted, you will be able to apply for accommodation in VUnet. Although we will do our very best to offer you a room, please note that we cannot guarantee housing for all exchange students.
If you are a non-EU/EEA student, then you will need a residence permit (and possibly a visa) for the duration of your stay in the Netherlands. We will organize this for you. However, you must supply us with the correct documentation.
We have prepared some useful information connected with your stay in Amsterdam, including information about the Arrival Days, insurance, opening a bank account, cycling and public transport.
