Exchange & Semester in Amsterdam

Exchange programme

Each year Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam welcomes exchange students from all over the world for one or two semesters. We offer hundreds of English-taught courses at both Bachelor’s and Master’s level, as well as comprehensive minor programmes. We also offer student housing, arrange visas (if applicable), provide airport pick-up service, an introduction programme and the opportunity to be matched to a (Dutch) buddy.
