Alumni Ambassadors

Besides our International Student Ambassadors that are currently studying at VU Amsterdam, we of course also have a community of International Alumni Ambassadors! These (former) students graduated from VU Amsterdam and are currently either working in the Netherlands, abroad or doing a PhD or (second) Master's.

Are you interested in what opportunities and/or challenges lie ahead after graduating? The Alumni Ambassadors can share their personal experiences. At what company are they working now? What can you do during your studies to prepare for your career? Was it easy to get into a Master's programme after graduating from a Bachelor's programme at VU Amsterdam? You can easily ask them questions like these by sending them an e-mail.

For general questions about the application procedure or admission requirements please contact the International Student Advisor (Bachelor and Master) of your area of study.
