Overview

The Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, or VU Amsterdam, is one of the leading research-intensive universities in the world. Located in the business district of Zuidas in Amsterdam, VU Amsterdam is also one of the two large public research universities in the capital city of the Netherlands. VU Amsterdam is home to top researchers who have been the recipient of numerous awards, including the NWO Innovational Research Incentives Scheme and the Spinoza Prize granted by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. These award-winning research works include new discoveries regarding the destructive effects of autoimmune and infectious diseases on the immune system, childhood metabolic and degenerative brain disorders, genetics, urban development, and more.

Aside from being a center for world-class research, VU Amsterdam also encourages its students to turn their knowledge into something they can profit from. A state-of-the-art facility called the Amsterdam Venture Studios and the Demonstrator Lab provide students with the appropriate tools and guidance on how they can hone their development skills by giving them the opportunity to create products and services that they can use to start a business. Other facilities that support this venture are the Innovation Exchange Amsterdam IXA, Demonstrator Lab, and the Amsterdam Science Park.

When it comes to academic opportunities, VU Amsterdam has a broad range of study programs to choose from. Some of VU Amsterdam’s interesting undergraduate programs are Ancient Studies, Cultural Anthropology, Econometrics and Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and more. For postgraduate studies, VU Amsterdam offers Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Big Data Engineering, Climate Econometrics, Global Environmental Change Policy, and others. VU Amsterdam also offers exchange programs to international students interested to take a semester or a complete academic year.

Before VU Amsterdam opened its doors to all local and even foreign students, it was first an academic institution that exclusively caters to Reformed Christians. The university was founded in 1880 by Abraham Kuyper, who became the prime minister of the Netherlands in 1901. During the 1960s, VU Amsterdam began accepting non-Reformed Christian students but retained its strong Christian values and traditions. It was also then when VU Amsterdam became a publicly funded university as opposed to when it was still an exclusive institution funded by donations and fund-raising efforts.

As a leading research-focused institution, VU Amsterdam puts high value on the understanding, practice, and application of scientific knowledge. The university recognizes its social responsibility of making contributions for the betterment of society not only by making new discoveries but more so by producing responsible professionals and researchers.
