VU Amsterdam Summer School 2024

VU Ams­ter­dam Sum­mer School 2024

Embark on a transformative academic journey with the 11th edition of VU Amsterdam Summer School. Tailored for students from Aurora member universities, a carefully curated selection of 10 courses aligns seamlessly with the cutting-edge domains of the Aurora pilot program. Immerse yourself in one- and two-week summer courses designed with precision—small-scale, dynamic, and covering a spectrum of themes. 

VU Amsterdam Summer School 2024 provides top-notch short courses in subjects like international law, environmental science and policy, and statistical research. A diverse and inclusive environment fosters cross-cultural understanding and encourages collaboration. Summer School professors are passionate about sharing their knowledge through interactive lectures, group discussions, and practical assignments. All courses are taught in English, and (depending on the course) open to Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD level.

This year's Summer School will occur between 6 July and 4 August (including arrival and departure days).  

Application and costs
Each Aurora member can select one student for the New Venture Summer School course, and one student for one of the other nine courses we offer. The selected students can then be nominated by the Aurora home university via The two students per Aurora university both receive a tuition fee waiver. Students can refer to their home university to learn more about the Aurora Mobility grant in order to pay for other costs such as accommodation and travel expenses.

Aurora students that are not nominated by the Aurora home university, can still sign up for the selected Summer School courses directly at Amsterdam Summer School. They will receive the same discount as VU students.

Course catalogue
All courses that are open to Aurora students have been published in the Aurora Course Catalogue:
