Student ambassadors, bloggers, and testimonials

Meet our alumni
Semester in Amsterdam welcomes students from across the world with a rich variety of backgrounds. Learn about what our alumni have to say about living in the Netherlands and studying at VU Amsterdam.

We invite all our prospective students to reach out to one of our ambassadors. They will answer your questions regarding studying at the VU, living in Amsterdam, the biggest cultural shocks that they had experienced, and places to attend for a good night out / perfect cup of coffee / great places outside Amsterdam. Feel free to contact them if you wish to learn more about Semester in Amsterdam programme, and also their own Dutch adventure.
