With more than 30,000 students and 5,000 employees, the UvA is one of the largest comprehensive research universities in Europe. Students from over 100 different countries study at the University of Amsterdam and contribute to its open, international environment, which stimulates unique discussions.
Students with interests in economics and business, media, literature, science and law come to the renowned UvA for their studies. And with its location in the centre of Amsterdam — the home of many international businesses and organisations — and strong partnerships with other research universities and institutions, the UvA gives graduates a great employment advantage.
UvA provides students with the opportunity to further their development of independent thinking, with a teaching staff that encourages autonomous learning throughout the duration of the three-year Bachelor programmes and one or two-year Master’s programmes.
