Summer School

Social programme

Besides a challenging, academic programme, you will find the AUAS Summer School will offer you enough time to explore the city of Amsterdam. You can make your own arrangements, or join the AUAS Summer School's social programme to meet fellow students.

An informal welcome and closing event is included in the tuition fee. But we also offer an exciting social programme with many fun activities to discover Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Dutch culture. On this page you find a sneak peek of the social programme. We cannot yet give away all the details, but we can say this: there will be plenty of time to explore the city, make friends and relax! More details will be added on 1 June, when the registration for the social programme opens for our summer school participants.

As an AUAS Summer School student you have to sign up for the social activities in advance. You will have the ability to register for the social activities from 1 June up until 15 June 2022. You will receive an email with registration link on 1 June. The social programme will be based on a first-come-first-serve basis and is only open to registered participants of the AUAS Summer School 2022.
