Please keep in mind that due to the situation concerning COVID-19 in the Netherlands it is hard to predict exactly how the situation will continue to develop over time. We do advise that you also make back-up plans in case the COVID-19 situation ends up forcing cancellation of exchanges.
The Faculty of Humanities participates in several exchange programmes, such as the Erasmus programme. The first step in the application procedure is to check if there is a valid exchange agreement between your home university and the University of Amsterdam.

There are only a limited number of courses available at Master's level.
Advanced students preparing for their final thesis can do individual research at the Faculty providing there is a bilateral agreement between the universities.
