Taster Day and Student for a Day

Want to know what it’s really like to study at VU Amsterdam?

Join us for a Taster Day or Student for a Day activity at VU Amsterdam! During a Taster Day, you get a taste of what life is like as a student at the university. You will get to know one specific Bachelor's programme and find out what you can expect in terms of the content. You will also meet students who are currently following the programme.

If the Corona guidelines allow it, we would like to welcome you again to our campus.

In addition to activities on campus, activities may also take place online, so that you can also get acquainted with your favourite programme(s) from home.

Almost all of our study programmes offer 1 or more activities. You will find these in the overview of activities. You can also immediately see whether it is a Taster Day or a Student for a Day activity and whether it is online or on campus. With a Taster Day activity, you also immediately see the date of the activity.

VU Amsterdam follows in its policy the guidelines of the Dutch government when it comes to Corona measures. View the measures in force at VU Amsterdam on our website.

Registration is now possible.

The following joint degree programmes offer information activities through the University of Amsterdam (UvA): Archaeology, Ancient Studies and Greek and Latin Language and Culture (in Dutch).

If you are interested in Dentistry (in Dutch), you can register for a Taster Day and/or Student for a Day activity through ACTA.

Would you like to learn more about Liberal Arts and Sciences? You can do that through the Amsterdam University College website.

Become a student for a day!

Whether you are curious about one, two, three or even more study programmes, choosing the right programme for you will be a lot easier if you experience what it’s really like to be a part of the (virtual) classroom. That’s why it is always a good idea to join a Taster Day or Student for a Day activity.

During a Taster Day, the teaching staff and students will tell you more about the study programme. You can, for example, follow a lecture with other prospective students, complete an assignment and ask all your questions during a Q&A session.

As a Student for a Day, you make an appointment with a student in the programme, either one-on-one or with a group of prospective students. The student will then take you through the content of the programme, student life, and his or her experiences at VU Amsterdam. You can ask the student anything you want; after all, he or she knows best what the study programme is like.

During an activity on the VU campus, you usually also take a guided tour.
