Exchange programmes


Spend a semester or even a whole year studying in Amsterdam! Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam offers about 300 Bachelor’s courses in English. Many Master’s courses are also open for exchange students.

Nomination & application

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.

When you arrive

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.

Liberation Scholarship Program

The Liberation Scholarship Program offers 70 scholarships to highly motivated students from Canada who would like to study in the Netherlands for three to twelve months.


If you have any questions about our exchange programme, please contact the members of the incoming exchange team.
