BSc Business Administration - Batch of 2025
4.1
Good student life manageable with academics.
Tips: I am very satisfied with the university. There are fewer contact hours than I expected so there is a lot of pressure to complete things on your own. There are no scholarships available. Renting a bike is the most cost-effective method of travelling throughout the city.

MSc Artificial Intelligence - Batch of 2024

UvA is a very good research focused uni for AI with amazing profs and top notch course material.
Tips: Very good transition. Felt positive cultural shift. Your opinion is valued irrespective of your gender or race. UvA is very research-focused. With really hardworking students and professors. I love it here. Scholarship for UvA might be competitive and you require a good research profile for it.
Likes (Safety): Safety is not an issue at all. Amsterdam is generally an open welcoming city. And in university too you shall feel safe and accepted. Nobody treats you differently or in a racist manner. You are exposed to people from different backgrounds and cultures.
Dislikes (Post study jobs): Qualcomm, Booking. Com, ABN Amro, ING. are some of the places we get recruitment. Job roles such as machine learning engineer, data scientist. Package - 3k to 7k euros per month. Thesis fair is a good way to get connected to the industry. Good socially focused startups are there too. You can apply to companies outside Netherlands too.

European Competition Law and Regulation (International and European Law) LLM - Batch of 2024
3.8
It is an amazing University, but Amsterdam is not so great to live in!
Tips: It is hard living alone in Amsterdam, more than the pressure from the University, the municipality and the cultural differences are vast. Like there are a lot of taxes that you would have to pay even though you are an international student. There are no on-campus houses, it is all off-campus but UvA helps you to get a house only for the first year. Earning from part time is a must, since living cost is extremely high.
Likes (Public transportation): The law school campus is in the middle of the city with both Tram and Metro connectivity. Still, bike (bicycle) is the preferred mode of transportation for all students. Public transport is a little costly, but still, there are options provided by the GVB (Public transport company) to reduce the cost, which works like a subscription plan.
Dislikes (Internships): The internship board of UvA doesn't provide with much options for non-dutch speakers, and the job market is very strict towards Dutch language proficiency despite the fact that there are many MNCs and English-speaking work environment. The internships for law are very less.

Behavioural Economics and Game Theory (MSc Economics) - Batch of 2022
4.4
Great experience. Unique courses, fast paced, difficult but worthwhile.
Tips: There is always a cultural shift moving abroad but it was better here since it is such a diverse city and language barriers are minimal. Education level is higher and fast-paced than expected. Lots of learning and a great city to be living in according to me.
Likes (Permanent Immigration): You get an orientation year visa after completing your Masters to look for a job and once you do get one, you have the option of getting a PR within 5 years of living in the Netherlands. And 2-4 years post that, you can apply for citizenship in the country.
Dislikes (Part time work): Limited options on campus. There are multiple options off campus though, depending on your requirements/class timings etc. it is manageable to do it over the weekends. Tougher in the week but depends on the course. The average payout would be 12-14 euros an hour.

MSc in Economics - Batch of 2022
4.1
Studying at UvA - Challenging yet rewarding
Tips: The UvA administration can be a bit lax so it can get frustrating at times but in the end, getting into the university and studying in Amsterdam is worth it. The education is top-notch and challenging. The culture is quite different from Indian universities. One is tested every week in the form of assignments and every month through exams. It is common to spend hours in the library with classmates and preparing assignments but if time is managed properly, it is possible to have fun too. I have learnt a great deal about time management after coming here. The economics course is very practical and challenging. Each assignment was designed in a way that challenged the students to think out of the box and was really rewarding.
Likes (Safety): Netherlands is a very safe country, for girls as well. The crime rate is quite low compared to other European countries. The student housing is pretty safe. I bike back home at 2-3 a.m. at night confidently. People and the Police in this country are also very helpful.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): One has to wait for 5 years to get permanent residence and also give the Dutch language exam. Hence, it might not be ideal for some people. The chances of permanent settlement after completing five years and taking the exam are not difficult at all. I would consider it.
