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.

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 t...

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 co...

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 citizenshi...

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 l...

Academic excellence and challenges: UvA experience

Tips: The University of Amsterdam is one of the premier institutes not only within the Netherlands but also throughout the European Union. However, it's worth noting that the country, and particularly Amsterdam has a significant housing shortage. Securing affordable accommodation can be very challenging. Nevertheless, the academic experience is great and all the courses are well-designed and offer a challenging environment. The student life at Amsterdam is terrific and the University is situated in cl...
