Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam offers over 120 English taught programmes at Bachelor’s, Master’s and doctoral level. Students of the university are taught and mentored by top researchers in their academic fields and encouraged at every opportunity to further their potential.
From the very beginning, the university has determined its own areas of research, created its own study programmes and practiced its own didactic methods. The teaching style can be described as student-centered: we stimulate students to develop their own opinion through independent and creative thinking.
