fashion is a global industry


International Degree programmes AMFI

Fashion is a global industry. That is why AMFI offers all its graduation specialisations in English as well as Dutch. 25% of AMFI students follow the English language programme. Together they represent over 54 different nationalities. Visit our official page on the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences website for information on application.


International network

AMFI has a broad international network and wants its students to develop such a network themselves. They are offered international study trips, exchange programmes with partner institutes abroad and the possibility to do internships in foreign countries. All this enables them to work their way successfully into key positions in the fashion industry. Within AMFI’s broad international network we set up collaborations and discuss innovation in the curriculum. We share ideas and knowledge as well as developing collaborative research projects.
