Through Semester in Amsterdam, you can choose to follow a cohesive minor programme or create your own schedule of courses from the 1,100+ English-taught courses we offer in eight different faculties. We also offer a full schedule of social activities throughout the semester as well as on-site advising and support. From start to finish, we are here to help!
Please note that the Semester in Amsterdam programme is separate from the Exchange or Erasmus programme at VU Amsterdam and is not a full degree programme.
- If you have been formally nominated by your home university to participate in Exchange and your university has a partnership agreement with VU Amsterdam, please see the Exchange Programme at VU Amsterdam. Not sure? Check the VU World Map or contact the international office at your home university.
- Are you a student of another Dutch university wishing to follow a minor programme? Please follow the steps for non-VU students.
- Are you interested in completing a full degree at VU Amsterdam? Please apply to the specific Bachelor's or Master's degree programme of your choice.
