Welcome to all new students in Amsterdam, a lovely city with a rich history, culture, and traditions! Studying in Amsterdam will not only enrich your knowledge by broadening your horizons but it also enables us to build lifelong friendships with students from all around the world. ISN will help you with this by bringing you together with our unforgettable activities, events and trips. We hope that this way you can get the most out of your stay!
