Taster Day and Student for a Day

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

Whether you are curious about one, two, three or even more programmes: your study choice process will be a lot easier if you really get an impression of studying your favourite programme at VU Amsterdam. That's why it's always a good idea to join a Taster Day activity or join a student for the Student for a Day activity. During these activities, you get a taste of life as a student at the university, what the campus looks like and what it is actually like to attend a lecture.

Taster Day

In the case of a Taster Day, the lecturers and students will tell you more about the programme. In most cases you follow a lecture with other prospective students, you make a work assignment and you can ask all your questions to teachers and students during a Q&A session. Finally, you will be given a tour of the campus.

Student for a Day

In the case of a Student for a Day activity, you make an appointment with a student from the study programme you're interested in and you follow this student during his or her study day on campus. The student then takes you through the content of the programme, student life and his or her experiences at VU Amsterdam. You can ask the student anything, after all, they know best what the programme looks like! The student also shows you the campus during a guided tour.
