Welcome to the webpage for international students wishing to pursue an exchange programme at Amsterdam University College (AUC). As a truly international institution, AUC is happy to receive exchange students from its partners! If you wish to study at AUC as an exchange student, you should contact your home university first. The international office of your university can inform you about the available study abroad opportunities. They can tell you if and in which fields your university participates in Erasmus (for European universities), and if there are any direct bilateral exchange agreements with AUC.

Amsterdam University College has established exchange agreements with a number of universities from all over the world. Download the partner overview document to see with which universities AUC has an agreement.

AUC also offers places to incoming exchange students from exchange partners of the University of Amsterdam. If you are applying through a UvA Global Exchange partner university, then please review the UvA’s information here.

Students from the partner universities pay their tuition fee to their home university and not to Amsterdam University College. Exchange students live together with AUC students in the AUC residences.


Please download our study abroad/exchange factsheet for incoming exchange students to find out more about our institution, applications, housing, courses, semester dates, grading, etc.
