Enrolment and selection

AMFI - Amsterdam Fashion Institute (English Programme)

The program has a numerus fixus with selection for the academic year 2020-2021. You can register from October 1, 2019 through January 15, 2020.

Did you participate in the selection?

The AUAS will send you the selection results within 4 weeks after the selection day. Each prospective student who participates in the selection will receive a ranking number through Studielink.

The ranking number is based on your results in the selection. If your ranking number falls within the maximum number of places of 430, you will also receive a placement certificate through Studielink. You must accept your placement certificate through Studielink within two weeks.

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

AMFI has capacity for 430 students in the 2019-2020 academic year. There were 727 candidates for the selection and on 15 April they have all received there ranking number. A number between 1 and 727. 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 430, 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 430, 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 1 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 1 May and 15 August (when AUAS will offer its final places). You should therefore check this page regularly, even in 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 form 1 May the information below will be updated once a week on Monday.
