Enrolment and selection

AMFI - Amsterdam Fashion Institute (English Programme)

As there are more prospective students than study places, AMFI has a limited number of study places (410). Therefore, the programme has a selection procedure.

Unfortunately, it is no longer possible to enrol for the 2022-2023 academic year. The application deadline was 15 January 2022. Are you still interested in this degree programme? Enrolment for the 2023-2024 academic year opens on 1 October 2022.

CROHO name

The official name of the programme at DUO (The Netherlands’ Education Executive Agency) is Fashion and Textile Technologies. This is the so-called CROHO name (ID 30037). Please see the NVAO website (Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders) for more information about CROHO terminology and accreditation.

AMFI has a capacity for 410 students for the 2022-2023 academic year. On April 15, the ranking numbers will be distributed. The participants with numbers 1 to 410 will be offered a place immediately on 15 April, which they must accept within two weeks.

If you have been allocated a number higher than 410, you obviously want to find out if there's a chance that you will be offered a place, and if so, when. If your number is slightly higher than 410, this could happen relatively soon after May 1st. If you have been allocated a higher number, you will have to wait a little longer.

From Monday 2 May, we will publish the numbers that have been processed each week below. This will allow you to estimate the chances of your number coming up between 2 May and 15 August (when AUAS will offer its final places). You should therefore check this page regularly, even in the summer, but particularly just after the publication of the HAVO/VWO final examination results. This is when applicants who have already accepted the offer but failed their exams will have to give up their place.

Please note that from 2 May the information below will be updated once a week on Monday.

The selection process consists of:
