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 will also enable you to build lifelong friendships with students from all around the world. We 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!

Are you an exchange student from UvA or AUAS?
Then you should be joining ESN’s Introduction Week! ESN’s Introduction Week is for exchange students and international students that will be studying at either the University of Applied Sciences (AUAS/HvA) or the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

You will receive an email from your exchange university with further information. This will be closer to the start of your semester abroad!
