Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands and an ideal study location for anyone looking for a unique but highly European experience. Founded in the 12th century as a small fishing village, Amsterdam became an important trading port during the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th century, creating the iconic canals and low-laying brick buildings that are quintessential to the city today. Though a large city of over 850,000 inhabitants, Amsterdam is relatively compact and accessible to locals and visitors alike. This highly-diverse cultural hub is known for world renowned art and museums, all with an undeniably cozy and laid-back atmosphere.
