Studying at VU University Amsterdam means looking further. Whatever your subject area, at VU University you will look further than knowledge alone. Further than what is immediately apparent. Further than the limits of your study programme. It means studying with an open mind. It means looking at society and what happens there.

The Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences offers six Bachelor’s degree programmes in diverse fields of study. The courses are available in Dutch language only. A Bachelor’s degree programme usually takes three years to complete, after which you can opt to do a Master’s programme.
