Aside from the terrible program experience, I had a blast traveling around Europe during my stay here in Amsterdam so it was definitely worthwhile!! I became 1000x more culturally aware and culturally diverse now that I have been to 12 countries. A terrific experience to gain independence. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

About

Study abroad in Amsterdam and live and learn in one of the safest and most open-minded cities in the world! Students gain insight into global business and critical economic issues by enrolling at one of CIEE Amsterdam's two partner schools, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) or the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU).

Students can also take classes taught at CIEE Amsterdam, which is a quick walk from the UvA and a 30-minute commute from the VU. The UvA is located in the city center of Amsterdam, which is home to the stock exchange, Dutch Central Bank, and Dutch and international companies large and small. The VU is located just outside of the city center of Amsterdam, near the business district in Amsterdam South. Courses are taught by highly qualified CIEE, UvA, and VU faculty and complemented with CIEE co-curricular activities and excursions to enhance classroom learning and provide intercultural understanding.
