Academic Focus: The program is open to non-Linguistics majors, however, preference will be given to students studying Linguistics.

Eligibility Requirements: UvA will only accept juniors and seniors. Minimum 3.0 GPA; good academic standing.

Courses: Students will enroll in UVA courses for an Emory equivalent of 16 credit hours during the first two sessions of the semester. Emory students have the option to take a credit-bearing Dutch language course, “Dutch Culture and Society (Netherlands I)” as part of their total course load at UvA and which will transfer back as 6 Emory credit hours. The Emory equivalent for this course is LING 151. The course is offered through the Faculty of the Humanities.

Credit and Grade Translation - University of Amsterdam

The Emory College Study Abroad Office maintains a list of blanket approved courses. This list specifies how courses taken abroad will transfer back to Emory. PLEASE NOTE: Students may obtain additional approvals for courses that are not currently on this OISP Master Blanket Approval List

Grading System: The Dutch academic grading system is based on a mark between 1 (minimum) and 10 (maximum). A mark of 5.5 or more represents a "pass." See the Credit and Grade Translation memo for the full grading rubric.

Living Arrangements:

Students live in student accommodations arranged by the Housing Department of the Central International Office. All students who send in their application form by the deadline are guaranteed accommodation in a student dorm. On the housing preference form, which is sent once accepted into the program, students can indicate their preferences and the housing office will send an offer by e-mail. This procedure starts in June and ends in September (for students starting in September). During this period it is very important that the students have access to their e-mail. Housing cost ranges from Euro 325 to Euro 500 for a larger single room. In case student accommodation is unavailable, the Housing Department will assist students in finding an apartment in Amsterdam. For more information click here.

Costs: A full description of the program costs and billing procedures is described in the budget sheets (Spring, Fall).

Financial Aid/Scholarships: Students are eligible to carry existing financial aid and scholarships on Emory-approved study abroad programs. Students may also be eligible to apply for the Benjamin Gilman Scholarship. For more information, please visit Study Abroad Scholarships, Grants, Research & Service.
