International students in Amsterdam

Amsterdam's community of international students is as diverse as the city itself. More than 6000 students from 127 countries enrolled in a Bachelor or Master’s programme in the previous year. In areas such as arts and creative industries, student populations are all but entirely internationalised. Students flock to Amsterdam from all over the world, but most are from Germany, Italy, the UK, Greece and China. And interestingly, Amsterdam currently attracts significantly more female than male international students.
