Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences

Upon Arrival

Normally, AUAS organises Arrival Days to welcome international students before they start their programme. During these days you could arrange several practical matters at the same time. Unfortunately, we cannot welcome you this way due to the Dutch corona crisis measures. We will organise alternatives to ensure you will experience a soft landing in Amsterdam. Keep an eye on our Arrival Day page, which will be updated regularly with new information.


Unfortunately, our events for 14 and 17 August 2020 are cancelled at the moment. We are looking into the possibility of offering several services online to ensure a soft landing in Amsterdam. We will provide more information as soon as the current situation allows us to. Questions? 

We can imagine you have questions or concerns about the coronavirus outbreak. You can visit for relevant information and an overview of frequently asked questions and answers. Keep an eye on that page for the latest updates.
