Study in Amsterdam

The multicultural city of Amsterdam is one of the world’s most exciting study locations and IC University of Applied Sciences – Amsterdam’s state-of-the-art campus is located right in the heart of it! The Netherland’s capital has long been a popular choice amongst international students thanks to thriving business scene, progressive outlook and first-class education.


The city of Amsterdam is the cultural heart of the Netherlands, defined by its rich history, extensive system of canals and small-scale feel.

Almost everyone here speaks English and over 180 nationalities are represented in a city which has just over 810,000 inhabitants, making the city a truly multicultural metropolis. This is one of the main reasons that international students continue to flock to Amsterdam each year, as well as the academic excellence it has to offer and connections to the rest of Europe.
