‣ Notes

1- Please check the fact sheet for detailed information. Courses in the fields of Psychology and at our School of Business and Economics have limited capacity. Therefore, incoming exchange students majoring in Psychology, Business and Economics are given priority in registering for courses in these subject areas. Students with different majors can apply for courses in these fields but should be prepared to adapt their course choice in case these courses are full. 2- - Bachelor’s students are not allowed to follow courses at Master’s level, unless these courses are also mentioned in the exchange courses overview under Bachelor’s courses. 3- Dutch taught courses are not always available to exchange students, even when having good proficiency in Dutch. Students should check with incoming@vu.nl if there is a list available of courses taught in Dutch in their subject area. 4- Courses and credits: http://www.vu.nl/en/programmes/exchange/courses/index.aspx 5- Accommodation: Unfortunately, there is still limited student accommodation in Amsterdam. Our International Office cannot guarantee accommodation but we will do our utmost to find suitable housing for everyone. Nominating and applying on time will help students find a room via VU Amsterdam.

Students will be informed about the procedure after uploading their application package. 7- Insurance: Health insurance is mandatory for all students and visiting staff. EU citizens can apply for an EU Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Non-EU citizens need to arrange their own private health insurance. VU Amsterdam recommends students and visiting staff insurance company AON (though students and visiting staff have the possibility to select their own insurance that will cover their stay in the Netherlands).
