University Description
The University of Amsterdam is the largest university in the Netherlands, with the widest range of courses on offer. An intellectual hub with 34,000 students, 6,000 employees and 3,000 PhD students. Connected by a culture of curiosity.The history of the University of Amsterdam started about four centuries ago with two internationally renowned professors. Gerardus Vossius opened the Athenaeum Illustre with his inaugural lecture 'De historiae utilitate' (On the usefulness of history) on 8 January 1632. The next day Caspar Barlaeus would hold his famous argument "Mercator Sapiens" (The wise merchant).The university grew. New faculties, new disciplines and new specialisms were introduced. The number of students also increased from 1100 to 2500 between 1917 and 1931, a large doubling. The university received a quality boost, renowned scientists - and future Nobel Prize winners - such as Gerardus van 't Hoff, Hugo de Vries and Johannes van der Waals came to Amsterdam.
