Do you perform at top level in sports or in a cultural field, besides pursuing your studies? VU Amsterdam wants to stimulate you in this. If you qualify, you can benefit from a financial scheme and additional facilities.
As a top-level performing student, you can receive financial aid from the Profile Fund, during the time that you combine your top-level activities and studies.
In addition to financial aid, students performing at top level in sports or in a cultural field often need additional facilities. The Facilities Regulation for top-level students was set up for that reason. Read the conditions carefully.
As far as top-level sports are concerned, you qualify if you hold NOC*NSF status or you practise a sport (which is on the most recent Top-level Sports List of the NOC*NSF) at the level of recognised finals of European Championships and World Cups. In other cases, the committee on top-level activities will decide on your application (usually based on the advice of Topsport Amsterdam).
If you are eligible for the top-level performance arrangements, you may have the opportunity to be placed in seminar groups that clash as little as possible with your top-level activities. You may also be exempted from the attendance requirements in some cases, and you may be able to apply for additional resits or examinations at a different time.
Applications can be submitted using the digital application form below:
Take into account a response time of 30 days. Submit the application as soon as you are registered for your study programme.
