The world of tomorrow starts today!

Sharing knowledge increases its worth.

That is why we, as a research university with a broad focus, consciously maintain a position at the heart of society. By dealing with current social problems and issues we lay the foundation for the future. We are a leading international research institution that offers high quality educational programmes.

We have a modern campus and always strive for a composition of students and staff that reflects our diverse society. If you would like to contribute to the world of tomorrow, and are looking for the best environment for your own development, VU University Amsterdam is the place to be.

VU University Amsterdam is a very special university. When it first opened its doors back in 1880, there were only five students and five professors. Nowadays, the university has almost 23,000 students and 4,500 staff. Since 1880, the VU has grown from a modest initiative on the Keizersgracht to become a leading institution in a major economic region of the Netherlands, the Zuidas.  VU University Amsterdam is investing in internationalization and in important social issues, in all parts of the world.

The VU has far-reaching ambitions with regard to education and research. It offers attractive opportunities for ambitious and talented individuals who want to contribute towards the achievement of those ambitions. VU University Amsterdam offers those opportunities to researchers, doctoral students and lecturers, but also to support staff such as policy advisers, financial controllers and specialists in ICT, HRM and communications.
