Amsterdam, Netherlands Dutch and English Law


For over 15 years the Faculty of Law of VU University Amsterdam has welcomed international students who want to experience a semester in the Netherlands. The exposure to another legal system and a different culture gives students a broader view on both the world and their own life. A study exchange allows students to meet people from all over the world and build a network of international friendships. 

VU University benefits from its unique location; situated in a global city in the heart of Europe. In just over fifteen minutes you are in the lively centre of Amsterdam. Also, Amsterdam is only a few miles from The Hague, where the Peace Palace, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal court and many international courts and tribunals are located.
