Admission and application

This page poivides our information about admission requirements and the application procedure. The application procedure distinguishes between Dutch students and international students. The criterion for this is nationality! Living in or outside the Netherlands is not a criterion.

The Academy of Architecture accepts a limited number of candidates to follow the Master's degree programs ('numerus fixus'). A selection is made on the basis of motivation and portfolio from the candidates who qualify for admission according to their previous education.

A condition for registration at the Academy of Architecture is that the student gains professional experience in the professional field during the study, by having a job for at least 20 hours a week at a workplace relevant to the study programme. See the tab Admission Requirements

Be sure to check out the website of the Amsterdam University of the Arts, especially the info about student affairs

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

(Students with a non-Dutch nationality)

There are three options for international students to study at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture:

1. As a regular master student (4 years)
International candidates can apply for the 4-year Master's degree program provided they are qualified and meet the requirements.
Applicants must be able to provide evidence of proficiency in the English language.
See tab Admission requirements.

2. As an exchange student (1 or 2 semesters)
Exchange students are students from schools that have either an 'Erasmus' or an 'EMiLA' exchange agreement with the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture. Exchange students can participate in the 2nd or 3rd year program for one or two semesters, provided that their level meets the requirement (at least a relevant bachelor's degree).
Applicants must be nominated by their home institution!
Admission depends not only on a bilateral exchange agreement between the schools, but also on the suitability of the student. The selection procedure is based on motivation and portfolio.
No tuition fees will be charged upon admission.
Applicants must be able to provide evidence of proficiency in the English language.
See tab Admission requirements.

3. As a guest student or ‘free mover’ (1 or 2 semesters)
The master's courses are offered in English and are therefore open to guest students (also known as 'free movers'). These students can participate in the 2nd or 3rd year program for one or two semesters, provided their level meets the requirement (at least a relevant bachelor's degree). The selection procedure is based on motivation and portfolio.
Upon admission, guest students pay the institutional tuition fees for one or two semesters, see info about tuition fees.
Applicants must be able to provide evidence of proficiency in the English language.
See tab Admission requirements.
