Program Overview

About University of Amsterdam

"Studying at the Universiteit van Amsterdam provides students with a double challenge: the intellectual challenge of a comprehensive academic curriculum and Amsterdam's exciting urban environment. The UvA is a large university, but a small scale has been preserved in how it is organized. The university is housed in both classic and modern buildings, most of which are located in the historic city centre. The combination of attractive buildings - situated along a canal, in a courtyard or surrounded by water - at the same time offering state-of-the-art facilities, is what makes the UvA so unique. The city itself is a popular cultural and media centre and an international junction of commercial firms. So it is a very attractive spot with a view to a future career." - University of Amsterdam
