The Hogeschool van Amsterdam, University of Applied Sciences (HvA), or Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, is the largest institutes for higher professional education in the Netherlands. The HvA mainly offers bachelor degree programmes, but also has a number of (professional) master degree programmes. For students from the HvA's international partner institutes it is possible to study at the HvA as an exchange student.

The HvA offers eighty courses of study, spread across locations in Amsterdam and Almere.

The HvA's 2,300 employees serve more than 40,000 students.

The HvA maintains ties with the University of Amsterdam. [3]

An important way of learning is via work placements. All students at the HvA have a practical work period in order to get on-the-job experience in the field of their study. Such a work placement can be at a company or organisation in the Netherlands or abroad. Most of the teaching at the HvA is organised in modules, which are given in four periods of ten weeks or in two semesters.[4]
