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 important information about Amsterdam University College (AUC) in a single source to guide you through various aspects of life on campus and the academic programme to assist you in making an informed choice for your future.

Student studying
Step 1: Getting oriented

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

Step 2: Chat with students and join Open Day presentations

Now that you're familiar with the basics of the AUC programme it's time to dig into the details by chatting directly with students or attending an AUC Open Day event, or VU or UvA Bachelor Day presentation to get to know our campus and ask your questions to AUC lecturers, tutors and current students. 

AUC Open Days

AUC will be hosting a variety of on-campus events and webinars in October, November, December and January to let prospective students and their guests get more information about AUC's curriculum, majors and academic programme, speak directly with students and staff, have (virtual) tours of the student residences and to meet with admissions officers to ask more complicated questions about applying and admissions requirements.
