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.

For the 2022-2023 academic year, you can enrol between 1 October 2021 and 15 January 2022 at the latest. Refer to the step-by-step enrolment procedure for more information on deadlines and requirements. Following your enrolment application, the degree programme will invite you to participate in the selection procedure.

Please note that mails from AMFI could end up in your spam box. Make sure to check your spam box regularly.

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 capacity for 410 students in the 2021-2022 academic year. There were 889 candidates for the selection and on 15 April they have all received their ranking number. A number between 1 and 889. The candidates with the numbers from 1 up to 430 have already been offered a placement which they have to 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 1 May. If you have been allocated a higher number, you will have to wait a little longer.

From Monday 3 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 4 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 3 May the information below will be updated once a week on Monday.

Candidates living outside the EU/EEA are also eligible for an online interview. After you register and submit the required assignments, you will receive a personal invitation to an interview. This interview will take place in February and March 2022.

The selection process consists of:

  • a homework assignment
  • an online multiple-choice test
  • a short lecture
  • an assignment on the online selection day
  • a only motivation interview with a teacher and a student from AMFI

We advise you to attend an online open day to get a better impression of AMFI as it is not possible to physically pass by.
