VU University studentsVU University Amsterdam invites prospective students to visit the Dutch capital and attend its Open Day on November 5th. During the event, students will be able to explore VU’s international programmes in Business, Economics, Computer Sciences, and Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Why visit VU’s Open Day?

Admission requirements at Dutch research universities are more strict than at universities of applied sciences. In order to be accepted into an academic programme that results in a Bachelor’s of Science (BSc) or Bachelor’s of Art (BA) degree, prospective students must have an adequate high school diploma and are required to pass an English exam at a higher level. Even though the requirements are tougher, academic degrees give students access to more options, from a professional career at a renowned company to pursuing a Master’s programme at top universities around the world.

VU University Amsterdam is ranked within the top 200 of most reputable global university rankings. The institution accepts talented students that have reached a certain academic level, are highly motivated and ambitious, and are able to pass the entrance exams for their programme (if applicable). The best way to understand what is required in order to be admitted to a programme at VU is to meet with the university’s staff members during an Open Day. Meeting staff and current students while exploring the university’s campus will provide prospective students with the opportunity to get any questions answered about the application, acceptance, and enrollment process.

An Open Day will also offer prospective students the chance to get a first-hand look at what studying at the university will be like. Because Bachelor’s programmes usually take 3 years to complete, it is important to be sure that the institution is a good fit. Besides getting a comprehensive understanding of the application process, Open Days also allow students to find out if they like the campus, feel inspired in the lecture halls, or enjoy the smells and tastes of the student cafe. Exploring a potential campus in person provides an experience that even countless hours of internet research simply cannot.

When to attend an Open Day at VU?

Bachelor’s Days at VU University Amsterdam are scheduled for November 5th, 2016 and February 11th, 2017. The events are free and don’t require registration.

If you can’t come to Amsterdam on either of these days, you can also set up an individual meeting time by emailing the international study advisor of your programme. Contacts for your department can be found on the VU website.

Which programmes will be featured at the Open Day?
