Program Overview

You'll find this progressive, multicultural city the perfect setting to explore Dutch society, politics, and culture. With an opportunity to live with a Dutch host for your entire stay or just a weekend, you'll get a truly personal introduction to this country and its eco-friendly, active way of life.

Unique Experiences

GET A MULTINATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

on everything you study by working side by side with the international student body at University of Amsterdam.

LIVE LIKE THE LOCALS

by taking a bike tour, attending a special exhibition at the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum, or another world-class institution.
