You’ll never be short of support or things to do when you study at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). Many associations and organisations arrange activities, trips and events, a brief summary of which is included below.
The ISN is an organisation run by for international students studying in Amsterdam. Its goal is to optimise the social-cultural integration of international students in Dutch society. The ISN organises activities, provides information on housing and work, runs a coach system and publishes a magazine covering the ins and outs of (student) life in Amsterdam. At the beginning of the academic year the ISN holds an introduction period, which is a great opportunity to get to know fellow international students, Dutch students and the city of Amsterdam.
There are a number of student clubs and organisations at the ABS, such as Sefa, FSA an MAA. Some of these organisations, such as Sefa, organise international study trips. Others arrange domestic study trips, company visits, career weeks, conferences, seminars, skills training, internships and so on.
