Choosing your study

Information for prospective students

Choosing a study programme is a big decision. From what subjects you want to study, to where you want to live, the type of lifestyle you want and what you want to do after graduating, there are many factors to consider when finding the university that best suits you. In order to help get you started, we've compiled information about Amsterdam University College (AUC) in a single source to guide you through various aspects of our academic programme and residential life to assist you in making an informed choice for your future.

Step 1: Getting oriented

Start the process of familiarising yourself with the AUC programme by learning more about the curriculum, the academic subjects you can study, what makes a major and residential life on campus, including a look in the student residences where all 900 students live.
