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 (430). Therefore, the programme has a selection procedure.

Unfortunately, it’s no longer possible to enrol for the 2020-2021 academic year. The application deadline was 15 January 2020. Are you still interested in this degree programme? Enrolment for the 2021-2022 academic year opens on 1 October 2020.

AMFI has capacity for 430 students in the 2020-2021 academic year. There were 784 candidates for the selection and on 15 April they have all received their ranking number. A number between 1 and 784. 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 4 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 4 May the information below will be updated once a week on Monday.
