Semester in Amsterdam

The Semester in Amsterdam programme welcomes students from undergraduate and graduate study. Students can spend either one semester or a full year abroad and are directly enrolled at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. We accept individual applicants, free movers, students from partner institutions and providers, and postgraduate applicants seeking professional development opportunities.


Students can create their own study programme by choosing courses from different academic disciplines or choose a combination of courses in one specific field, known as a Minor.


We offer accommodation to all Semester in Amsterdam students. Accommodation consists of fully furnished single rooms with a private bathroom and shared kitchen.
