I started studying in the zuid of Amsterdam in 2017 and it was an amazing experience. I moved from Rio to Amsterdam when I was only 18 and fitted in perfectly!
Everybody was super helpful with assisting me settling into my new life. I easily found a new job and managed to juggle between school work and work.
The campus looks slightly outdated but inside the facilities are top-grade, aswell as the professors
As a graduate of the University of Lisbin, which largely follows the Portueguesse university system, the University of Amsterdam is a breath of fresh air.
The professors at the University of Amsterdam clearly care about their students and their success.
my his LLM program also allowed me to choose the course that interested me the most.
Overall, the educational level at the University of Amsterdam is very high, but you have a lot of free time as the system is different from what you are used to. At the University of Amsterdam, students are expected to apply what they learn more theoretically and argumentatively, in contrast to the French system where students have to read and memorize countless texts.
This is my 4th year at the university, in my opinion it is very fast passed and we are required and expected to learn a large amount of material in a short period of time. However the study material is very detailed and nicely explained. The books we use and research are very goodView more
Vrije Universiteit is an exceptionally international and diverse university. Located 15 minutes from the centre of Amsterdam, it is easily reachable by public transport or by bike. International Business Administration, my study programme teaches extremely relevant and up-to-date material. While getting to know business administration in a deeper context, we also get a chance to enhance our different skills and talents. There are numerous opportunities after finishing our studies due to the networking and connections we build during our studies, and the great opportunities the university offer to graduates.View more
The classes and lectures were great, there was always an opportunity to ask questions and to interact with our peers and teachers. The material was clear and somewhat easy for the most part, however, there were courses in which the material was hard to obtain.View more
When I entered the university, I had an idea of what “psychology” would look like in terms of studying it. Though some parts are still extremely interesting, others (such as a heavy focus on statistics and its counterparts) are not my preference, personally. However, I am sure that others still thoroughly enjoy the programme, despite the heavy focus on statistics.View more
Practical, I have learnt a lot that I can use in my future career prospects for jobs are good connection with companies is bad could be improved like promotion of internships but all in all a good experience.View more
I like how each semester was divided into 3 periods and how the University helps you with housing options and visa applications. There are many classrooms and buildings, the campus has an amazing location. Food options at the campus are kinda lacking, but overall everything is great about this University! I highly recommend it!View more
