Application, admission requirements and sessions overview

Here you will find important information regarding the admissions and application process for VU Amsterdam Summer School. Each course has its own set of additional entry requirements, which you can find on the relevant course admissions page.

How exciting that you would like to join us this summer! You can apply via our application form. You will be asked several questions and to upload the required documents mentioned below. Please note: the new application deadline is midnight 15 May 2024. 

Once you have filled out the application form, you will be directed to a payment* page. You have the choice to complete the payment to secure your spot in the course, or you can decide to pay at a later moment. Please be aware that your spot in the course is only secured once we have received the payment. The payment needs to be completed before the application deadline. If you want to apply for multiple courses, you only need to fill out the form once. 

If you would like to pay via invoice or you have been nominated by your university, then please reach out to

Once we have received your application and your payment, the summer school team will review your application and will inform you within 5 working days if your admission is accepted or denied. In case your admission is denied, you will receive a full refund. 

Required documents:
In the application form you will be asked to provide the following two documents (no larger than 1 MB per document):

  • Curriculum Vitae/Résumé (mostly important for us to understand your educational background)
  • Transcript of records (a print screen of your most recent grades is sufficient and needs to include your name and the name of your University)

The documents will be shared with the professors before the start of the course. 

Course application deadline
15 May (23:59 CEST)

Course confirmation
In mid-May you will be informed if your chosen course will run or not. In the unfortunate case that your course is cancelled (in case it does not reach the minimum number of participants) you will be able to move to another course (depending on availability) or get a refund.

Social programme registration: In May all participants will receive a link to sign up for the additional social programme. We operate with a first come first served system, and we have limited spots available.

*If after receiving the documents doubts remain about the academic level of the student, VU Amsterdam Summer School reserves the right to ask for additional documents and/or a telephone/video interview.

The application process consists of two steps:

Any other questions such as visa acquisition or language level are answered on our FAQ's page. You can also reach out to us via email, we are here to help! 

* Refund is for course fees only. All other costs, such as travel or accommodation, is at your own expense.
