"Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences is a great opportunity to prepare people to work in the business field. The building of Business& Economy possesses advanced facilities such as a library with computers, study corners, cantine and modern classrooms. University offers a variety interesting courses and most teachers (for English modules) are from abroad. I would definitely recommend it to others. As one remark I would highlight that there are much more local students taking the programme than I expected. Therefore, in most of the classes local (Dutch) students are the majority. "
"The HvA (Hogeschool van Amsterdam) as it officially is called is, in my opinion, a fairly decent university. It is nicely located in the centre of Amsterdam, which makes it a great location. Most buildings are located within a 500-metre stretch, which gives a slight campus feeling. (Although there are also faculties outside of this stretch). There are over 40.000 students studying here, which kinda makes it feel a little bit like a factory sometimes. "
