International students are welcome to apply for the 4-year master’s course, provided that they are qualified and meet the 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. Admission not only depends on a bilateral Erasmus agreement between the schools, but also on the suitability of the student. The selection procedure takes place on the basis of motivation and the portfolio. If needed, the candidate will be invited for an (telephone) interview. Applicants have to be nominated by their home institution. Upon admission no tuition will be charged. Applicants must be able to provide evidence of competency in the English language.

3. As a Guest student, or ‘free mover’ (1 or 2 semesters)

The master’s courses are given in Dutch and English and therefore open to guest students (also called 'free movers'). These students may take part in the program for one or two semesters, provided that their level matches the required standard (at least a relevant bachelor degree). The selection procedure takes place on the basis of motivation and the portfolio. If needed, the candidate will be invited for an (telephone) interview. Applicants must be able to provide evidence of competency in the English language.
