The Erasmus Mundus Association (EMA) is pleased to announce that Amsterdam has been chosen as the Erasmus Mundus City of the Year! This title celebrates Amsterdam's vibrant culture, rich history, and outstanding contributions to international education.

With its world-class universities and research institutions, Amsterdam offers a dynamic and inclusive educational experience.

Whether exploring the iconic Van Gogh Museum, cycling along the picturesque streets, or immersing themselves in the vibrant nightlife, Amsterdam offers a wealth of experiences for students seeking to broaden their horizons.
