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.
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.
We offer student housing at various locations in Amsterdam and, if applicable, arrange your visa/residence permit.
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.
We offer exchange students the opportunity to be matched to a (Dutch) VU student. Your buddy will help you with academic, practical as well as social matters.
If you have any questions about our exchange programme, please contact the members of the incoming exchange team.
