Open Day Activities and Programme

The Open Day offers an engaging programme that gives visitors a holistic impression of the AUC student experience.

Welcome and introduction

Each of the Open Day sessions begins with an introduction by the AUC Dean, Prof. Dr. Martin van Hees, to help you get acquainted with the AUC curriculum, framework of the academic programme and philosophy behind a Liberal Arts and Sciences programme. This official welcome is then followed by a short introduction by the Student Association (AUCSA) and Student Council (AUCSC) to offer insight into what life is like at AUC from a student perspective. An alumni representative concludes this presentation to show which graduate programmes AUC student have attended and which career paths they've taken after their time at AUC. 

Academic experience

The day continues with a variety of meet and greets, scholarship information and opportunities for one-on-one chats with students and staff. Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences, the three majors at AUC, are all represented by core faculty members who help in explaining the majors, specialisations and topics of study at AUC in both drop-in sessions and more formal presentations.

Life outside of the classroom

An Open Day isn’t only about academics, but also gives you a sense of life outside the classroom at AUC. The Community Projects and Internships Office will hold an ongoing question and answer session to showcase the variety of companies, foundations and projects students work with both in Amsterdam and further abroad. Building on this international connection, the AUC International Office organises a drop-in information area where they explain the extensive exchange network and opportunities for studying abroad during your time at AUC.

For a true look at student social life, the AUC Student Association asks committee representatives to highlight the various social clubs and activities students partake in. Furthermore, you will be able to literally see how a student lives by taking a tour of the student residences

Still have questions?

If at the end of the programme you still have questions, current students and staff members will all be available to help you get the answer! We look forward to meeting you either on-campus on Saturday, 28 October 2023 at AUC!
