Throughout the year, there are multiple opportunities to visit Amsterdam University College or speak to representatives about our academic programme.
During the semester, the AUC Academic Building (Science Park 113) the AUC building is open:
Please note that there is a cap on capacity in some locations in the AUC building. Although 1.5m distance is no longer necessary for activities directly related to education (lectures, for example), there is a maximum capacity of 75 people per classroom, study space or common area. The building will remain closed on weekends until at least 1 November.
In addition, all visitors to the Academic Building must wear a facemask while moving through the building (until seated).
Furthermore, while study spaces are open for student use, it is not encouraged to stay in the academic building longer than necessary in order to reduce contacts and risks of transmission.
Due to coronavirus measures in place, and to help protect our community while education restarts in person, AUC will not be hosting in-person tours. You can find more information about online and virtual alternatives via the links below.
As an alternative, you can:
The online tour of AUC will take place via Zoom, a video conferencing platform. An AUC staff member or a student ambassador will guide you through a virtual tour of the campus, explain our study programme and curriculum, and give you an introduction to what life is normally like as a student at AUC and in the student residences.
Please be aware that the virtual tour may occur in a group setting with other prospective students and/or their guests also joining. The virtual tour will last approximately 45 minutes.

During AUC's Open Day, you will be able to learn all about the AUC academic programme through diverse information sessions, and speaking directly to lecturers, tutors, admissions officers and students! As we still need to be cautious about keeping our community safe during the pandemic, we will be hosting a larger online Open Day on 11 November, and a small-scale, on-campus Open Day on 13 November for those living in the Netherlands.
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. Bachelor's Days consist of presentations and question sessions 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 UvA Bachelor's Week will consist of online presentations in October 2021. The VU Bachelor's Days are on 5 and 6 November 2021 and will take place online as well.
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.
