The University of Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most prominent research-led universities. It is a modern institution with a long and rich history dating from 1632.
Graduate Schools and Colleges
Teaching at the UvA is incorporated in Graduate Schools (Master’s study programmes and the teaching part of PhD programmes) and Colleges (Bachelor’s study programmes).
These fall under one of the seven UvA faculties. Amsterdam University College (AUC), an educational institute of the UvA and VU University Amsterdam, is the only exception to this rule. In addition, there is one university educational institute: the Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies.
