The Amsterdam University of the Arts has a highly international student population; more than a quarter of the students are from outside the Netherlands. The international students are already experiencing the richness and challenges of studying in a culturally and artistically different environment than their home country.
The Amsterdam University of the Arts offers its international (and national) students two possibilities to finance a short study or internship period abroad. The student exchange program from the European Union (the Erasmus program) aims to stimulate students to study or to do an internship in another EU country. The AHK has several bilateral agreements with institutions in Europe.
For students who cannot meet the criteria of the Erasmus program, it is possible to apply for the AHK Internationalization Fund.
