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.

It is expected that we will be able to organize activities on campus again from the autumn but some activities will still take place online. As always, we will do everything in our power to help you experience what the study programme is really like and to help you choose the right programme for you. 

Pre-registration is already possible for the autumn activities. We will send you an e-mail in the course of October when the actual registration starts.

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.
