HUNTER/University of Amsterdam Exchange

 

FALL/YEAR program application deadline: TBA. Fall/Year applications will be due mid-February; check back soon for the exact date!

SPRING program application deadline: SEPTEMBER 13.


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. It offers a very wide range of programs, including Humanities, Social Sciences, Economics, Sciences, and Amsterdam University College, a small-scale Liberal Arts and Sciences program. In order to attract some of the best students around the world, the UvA has developed strong mainstream academic programs in English, taught by distinguished faculties.

For more information, visit their website.
