Event details of Admissions Day: 14 April 2021

Like all universities in the Netherlands, AUC has been taking measures to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to protect the health and safety of our community, we will be offering all applicants a virtual Admissions Day experience where you can meet faculty members of AUC, chat with current students, ask questions to members of our staff and have your individual conversation with one of our academic tutors. 

13.55 - Log in to Digital Platform Zoom

For the AUC Admissions Day, we will be using Zoom, a digital video conferencing platform for both the plenary sessions and Q&A hangout. Be sure to log in, test your camera and audio on your laptop, and get comfortable before the presentations begin.
