About Exchange in Amsterdam, Netherlands
The University of Amsterdam exchange offers students two different options. The first option includes coursework in a variety of disciplines at the University of Amsterdam, a comprehensive and internationally-oriented research university. The other option is study at Amsterdam University College, a small, tight-knit international college, similar to a US Honors College.
