Amsterdam - Study Amsterdam

Program Overview


Our Study in Amsterdam Program takes advantage of the city's unique balance of history and contemporary culture, and lets you structure your studies at the prestigious Universiteit van Amsterdam and at the IES Abroad Center. Several courses include hands-on components to help you explore the city of Amsterdam and its surroundings while learning about the city's past and present.

Amsterdam will be your classroom. With an important place in European history, the city is far from frozen in time--many forward-looking public policies originated here. Study the history of Amsterdam by visiting some of the city's historic spots, including Anne Frank's home and the Rembrandt House.

Explore the city's well-known museums, such as the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum, to find out more about this diverse culture. Welcome to study abroad!
