Who we are?
Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam: looking further
Ever since it was founded in 1880, VU Amsterdam has been known for its distinctive approach to knowledge. VU is an open organization, strongly linked to people and society. What matters is not just the acquisition of a greater depth of knowledge, but also a wider one. We ask and expect our students, researchers, PhD candidates and employees to look further – to look further than their own interests and their own field, and further than what is familiar and further than the here and now.
The Faculty of Humanities has an excellent reputation for welcoming international students. You can join our courses as part of an Exchange programme and we have an increasing number of full degree programmes at BA and MA levels that are fully taught in English.
