Visit AUC

Throughout the year, there are multiple opportunities to visit Amsterdam University College or speak to representatives about our academic programme.

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. 

AUC Open Day dates for 2019-2020:

  • Saturday, 9 November 2019
  • Saturday, 18 January 2020

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 more personal interaction.

Until 31 December 2019, tours at AUC are offered on the following days/times:

  • Mondays at 11.30
  • Wednesdays at 11.30
  • Fridays at 14.30
