University profile The Universiteit van Amsterdam (UvA), founded in 1632, has a strong historical bond with the city of Amsterdam. Nowadays studying at the UvA means having one of the world's most fascinating cities as a campus because the university buildings are scattered all over the city. With over 24,000 students, including more than 2,500 international students and researchers, the UvA is one of the four 'classical' comprehensive universities in the Netherlands. This means that it offers a very wide range of programmes.

Students are generally not allowed to pick courses from different faculties at the UvA. In certain cases it is possible to take one or two courses outside of the host faculty, but this can only be arranged on a case-by-case basis by your host faculty and is dependent on availability of courses. Course placement is not guaranteed. Course placement is generally not confirmed until right before the start of the semester.
Undergraduate programs NOT open to exchange students Medicine, Dentistry, Graduate School of Social Science (except Research Master Metropolitan Studies) MSc. Business Studies
Graduate programs open to exchange students Master/Graduate placement is decided on a case-by-case basis and only possible if a student has a completed Bachelor/Undergraduate degree in the desired field of study. An exception is the faculty of Law; exchange students can only take master's courses at the Amsterdam Law School and do not need a completed bachelor's degree, however, students do need to have at least two full years of academic background in Law.
