Are you an (upcoming) elite athlete and you also want to study? At the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, you can do both!
Do I qualify as an elite athlete?
Our elite athlete system is based on the athlete policy of our National Olympic Committee (NOC*NSF). They developed standards, together with the sport federations, on the minimum active level of a player to be called a talent or elite athlete. For most sports that means: performing in the National (youth) team or close to that.
The Elite Sport Academy Amsterdam (TAA) offers elite athletes the opportunity to successfully combine their sports career with a study programme of their choice at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS).
