VU University Amsterdam places a strong emphasis on projects that offer opportunities for study and/or work experience abroad, while at the same time welcoming students from all over the world in Amsterdam. Our aim is to create a multicultural atmosphere in which Dutch and international students can grow and flourish both academically and socially.
