In the face of the coronavirus outbreak, Amsterdam University College continues to provide students with the best possible (digital) learning environment to ensure that current students can continue their education.
The measures taken by the Dutch government to limit the further spreading of the coronavirus have had an impact for both students and staff. Although in-person teaching is not possible, AUC staff have been working hard in order to ensure that current students can continue their education online. Our admissions staff will be staying in close contact with the next generation of AUC students so that their applications can continue to be processed and that they can look forward to starting at AUC with their well-being and academic development as a priority.
Below you can find a brief overview of the measures being taken at AUC and where to find more information and updates.
AUC is a joint programme of the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA), but its operational management, including crisis management, runs through the auspices of the UvA. AUC is therefore closely following the UvA with regard to measures related to the new coronavirus. The UvA, in turn, is closely following the measures and (travel) recommendations of the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Public Health Service of Amsterdam (GGD). Updates from the University of Amsterdam are available at uva.nl/coronavirus.

The most up-to-date information for current AUC students is announced via the Student Information Canvas environment (UvAnetID required). Prospective students and external visitors should check uva.nl/coronavirus for the most recent developments as it relates to the University of Amsterdam and the section below for specific implications of these developments for AUC.
The AUC Academic Building (Science Park 113) is closed starting Friday 20 March 2020 until at least the end of the semester.
AUC is very proud of both our students and staff, who have been exemplary in showing resilience, cooperation, understanding and patience.
