Apply To This Program

In this interdisciplinary and academically rigorous program at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), students will have the opportunity to take an in-depth look into their chosen course of study. Course offerings are highly specialized, focusing on research methodology across various disciplines. Each course also has an experiential learning component. Students will use Amsterdam as their classroom as labs, field trips, and other activities facilitate deeper engagement with course material.

All students will make course selections upon application to the program. This is a tentative selection as admission into all courses is dependent upon approval by the host university; VU will vet each student's completion of the stated pre-requisites before granting admission to a course.

VU follows a modular academic structure. The summer is divided into three periods (called "blocks") which are each two weeks in length. Students will take one course during each block, as follows:

Summer 1: Sessions 1+2 (2 courses total)
Summer 2: Sessions 2+3 (2 courses total)
Summer 3: Sessions 1+2+3 (3 courses total)

Please contact the Netherlands Site Specialist with any questions related to academics for this program.
