Profile and services
VU Amsterdam’s International Office is part of Student & Educational Affairs and assists in students’ and employees’ international mobility. The International Office hosts, organizes and supports multiple international and cultural activities and programmes on campus, to increase its appeal and to make it as accessible as possible to students and employees.
Innovation is very important to VU Amsterdam. VU Amsterdam is constantly changing and adapting to meet the demands of the international community by transforming its programmes and campus to include English-taught courses and English-language signs, activities and projects. The university is also proud of its diverse students and members of staff. Further promoting diversity among incoming and outgoing members of staff and students is an important point of focus for the International Office. The International Office also provides all the necessary information to international students about application procedures, how to find housing, organize visas and work permits and anything else they may need prior to, during and after their stay in Amsterdam.
