Are you willing and able to go beyond what your degree programme has to offer? An AUAS excellence programme is an opportunity to develop additional skills and achieve your full potential. In the AUAS's excellence programmes, students are set innovative and challenging assignments under the supervision of highly motivated lecturers.
Some students stand out through their independence, drive and creativity. They aren't afraid of setting the bar high and enjoy the challenge of working with other high-achievers to achieve excellent results. Does this describe you? Read more about the range of excellence programmes available per faculty or through the degree programme of your choice.
The AUAS actively seeks out talent. We believe that every student has talent, but that sometimes that talent needs to be stimulated. Easily accessible and with no admission requirements, Studium Excellence has been developed for first and second-year students interested in discovering whether excellence programmes may be right for them.
Students seeking an additional challenge over and above that offered by their degree programmes may apply to do an Honours programme. Students mostly take honours programmes in the third and fourth years of their degree programmes. Honours programmes allow these students to demonstrate their ability to perform at a level that exceeds that of standard higher professional education.
The AUAS values its community of students pursuing excellence programmes. The foundations of your professional network are laid during your years in education. The AUAS is proud of its students participating in excellence programmes, which is why we wholeheartedly support the initiative of a number of these students to establish a dedicated study association Excellentievereniging Amsterdam. All students in an excellence programme are welcome to join. This student network meets regularly and organises numerous activities.
