AUC Open Days
Open Days are a great way to get to know AUC in its entirety. Taking place twice a year, the Open Days allow visitors to get an in-depth look at the AUC academic programme, meet with teaching staff from all three majors, ask questions to the Heads of Studies, have one-on-one sessions with current students, speak directly to admissions officers, hear stories from alumni, tour the AUC student residences, learn about the various majors and participate in sample lectures! Held annually in November and January, Open Days allow prospective students and parents to get a look at all aspects that make living and studying at Amsterdam University College unique.

UvA and VU Bachelor Days
As a joint initiative of both the University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), AUC also takes part in their Bachelor Days. The Bachelor Days are designed to inform prospective students about the various Bachelor programmes offered within the faculties of the UvA and VU. Both Bachelor's Days consist of an hour-long presentation and question session designed to introduce prospective students to the liberal arts and sciences model, explain which majors and areas of study are possible at AUC, and describe what it's like to live in the student residences on campus. The AUC portion of the UvA Bachelor Day is always hosted at the AUC academic building in Science Park, while the VU Bachelor Day takes place at the Main Building on the VU campus in the south of Amsterdam.
Tour the campus
Can't make it to one of the Open Days or Bachelor's Days? No problem! A tour at AUC can be booked throughout the year (including over the summer). During a tour, one of our AUC student ambassadors or a member of our staff will guide you around the academic building and discuss the in's and out's of the academic programme and student life. There is always ample time to ask questions and the groups are intentionally kept small to allow for a more personal interaction.
Student Experience Days
Taking place throughout the semester, student experience days are meant to give prospective students the opportunity to feel what it's like to be a student at AUC. In a half-day programme, guests will be paired with an AUC student ambassador with whom they will attend a class. After the class, prospective students join the AUC ambassadors for a tour of the student residences and an opportunity to ask current AUC students about their programme and life on campus. Throughout the day, prospective students will be able to meet members of AUC's teaching faculty, as well as current AUC students in order to get an accurate impression of the institute.
Please note that Student Experience Days are open only to prospective students that have already visited AUC for information session, tour or Open Day.
