Faculty of Science. Change your world fundamentally

The Faculty of Science of VU Amsterdam encourages scientists and students to find sustainable solutions to the complex social issues of this day and age. With great dedication, we practice science addressing every manner of subject, from forest fires to big data, from obesity to medication, and from molecules to the moon. The collaboration between scientists working on fundamental and applied research allows communities to be built beyond the borders of the various disciplines, following new and innovative pathways.

Our dedication is passed on to our students, who are in direct contact with the professors in their field. Our vibrant campus is a place where knowledge and experience are shared among an international community of students, doctoral candidates and scientists. With sound academic foundations, extensive interdisciplinary expert knowledge and a wide-ranging outlook on the world, they are capable of making an effective contribution to science and society.

We work together with various organisations and knowledge institutions, as well as with the business world, with an especially strong collaboration with VU Medical Center Amsterdam (VUmc) on life sciences. Our Amsterdam Zuidas location also offers unique opportunities for international exchange and collaboration.
