Introduction to ONCAMPUS Amsterdam
ONCAMPUS Amsterdam offers high-quality preparation programmes for international students to enter either UvA or AUAS. We work in close partnership with both universities and our students are able to enjoy the benefits of this relationship.

You will receive a university student card, which will give you access to all of the university’s facilities, clubs, and societies while you are studying at ONCAMPUS Amsterdam. We will also arrange induction programmes together with the universities, so that you can meet other students and experience what university student life is like first-hand.
