Envision yourself in a bio lab or a psychology lecture. Now look around you—you're surrounded by Dutch and international students. Your classroom isn't in one of those old familiar buildings on your home campus, it's in one of Europe's most exciting and unique cities—Amsterdam—at an internationally recognized research university, the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU).
With its strong course offerings in psychology and the sciences, you're bound to find a variety of English-taught courses at the VU to apply to your major. From Experimental Cell Biology to The History and Philosophy of Psychology, you can dive further into your major, but you also have the opportunity to expand your studies beyond psychology and the sciences with IES Abroad course options, such as Dutch language and culture, sexuality and gender, studio art, art history, and research.

Known for its liberal views and open-minded attitude, the residents of Amsterdam welcome you to this cozy city. You'll adore the lovely canals and old European charm that make up the enchanting city of Amsterdam. Because the city planning hasn't changed much since the 19th century, you'll appreciate the architecture and historic homes that color the city. And you can't leave without seeing the windmills!
