Fascinating city, excellent education

The Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) is a university with centuries of history in teaching with a focus on the practical applications of acquired theory. Located in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, we share the international Dutch reputation for excellent education.

We are proud to present the AUAS Summer School, a sun-kissed selection of our finest teachings offered to you in July. Prepare yourself for a first rate educational experience.

Small groups, strong networks

The AUAS' faculties of Applied Social Sciences and Law, Business and Economics, and Sports and Nutrition have ten fascinating academic courses to offer this July (check the summer courses for exact dates). Join a group of 20 to 30 eager students for one or two weeks of intensive classes. With all lectures and workgroups taking place at the Amstelcampus, our teaching facilities at Amsterdam city centre, you are bound to have memorable discussions with your peers from all over the globe - perhaps making friends for life. 

Powerful theory for excellence in practice

Central to the mission of the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) is the delivery of hands-on knowledge rather than endless, abstract theory. Whether you're still studying elsewhere but you'd like to broaden your horizon with ingredients outside your regular curriculum, or you're a working professional eager to improve your skill set: the AUAS Summer School promises real, effective additions to your mind.

Proud heritage in international business

To spend a summer living and studying in Amsterdam is to experience one of the most exciting cities in the world - and a global business hub with a history that dates back centuries. Hardly a city in the world features a more culturally diverse population. Ever wondered why so many 'Amsterdammers' speak English? Now you know.

Student life, city life

The AUAS Summer School is a challenge for sure, with Monday to Friday of eye-opening classes. But there is plenty of time and space for a fulfilling social programme and memorable excursions. Our city is beautiful in summer - visit one of the many museums or parks, relax at a restaurant or a bar on a bustling street, where the setting sun on the world-famous canals forms an excellent backdrop to discuss your newfound insights.

Application for the AUAS Summer School 2018 will open in December 2017. Would you like us to keep you informed? Please fill out the interest-form above, and join our Facebook-page.
