Are you ready to sign up for a summer of skills and social enrichment? Do you want to apply for a summer course? Then here's what you need to do:
First you need to know what course you would like to attend. Check the course-pages for more information about the learning objectives, the lecturers and the requirements.
Do you need housing? Please check our housing options. To make sure the housing option of your choice is still available, we advise you to apply early. If you want to arrange housing on your own, you are welcome to do so. Please note that Amsterdam is a popular city, and hotel rooms are limited and can be quite expensive.
Time to apply! Check out the application procedure, and fill out our online application form. The application deadline ends 1 June 2018.
Depending on what country you are from, you may need a visa. views about which students need a visa and how to apply for one on our Visa-page.
We can't help you with this step. We can give you a tip however: book well in advance. Summer is a busy time in Amsterdam. Prices may increase as your arrival date approaches. No later than 8 May 2018 we will inform you if the course you applied for will proceed or be cancelled. (You can find information about our cancellation policy in our general conditions.)
It is probably not something you want to think about, but we strongly advise you to take out insurance.
Bring your ticket and a valid passport of course! Cash money for the first days (for meals and your public transportation card). € 75,- should do.
Even during summer the weather in Amsterdam can be tricky. It can get warm (20-25 °C), so bring your summer clothes. But please make sure to bring a warm sweater and a rain jacket just in case.
Wifi is available on campus. For places off-campus that don't provide wifi, please bring an internet cable. Please check for wifi-availability when you book your accommodation.
