Student Support and Testimonials

Ensuring our students are supported throughout their studies is one of our main priorities, which is why we have Student Support Services and a Students' Union in place at the campus.

Should you decide to join us in Amsterdam, Sharon Husbands (Campus Support Coordinator) will be on hand to help you in any way she can, as well as the wider Support Team. From employability tips and CV workshops to on-the-ground counselling, mental health and dyslexia and disability teams, you will never be short of help should you need it.

Northumbria Students' Union also has a presence on the Amsterdam campus and are there to represent your views and to make sure your time with Northumbria is the best it can be.


We understand how important it is to learn more about the student experience in Amsterdam, which is why we asked our alumni to talk about their programmes and why they chose to study at the Amsterdam Campus.

If you're a member of our Amsterdam Alumni Association and wish to share your experience in Amsterdam then please contact the Amsterdam Team at

Edward Clayton
MSc Business with International Management (Amsterdam) 

After obtaining a first class honours degree from Northumbria University, I decided to undertake the brand-new MSc in Business with International Management at Northumbria's Amsterdam Campus. From learning the ins and outs of what it took to be a international manager in today's world at a bachelor level, I thought I would continue my learning of the subject in a truly international way. The teaching I received in Amsterdam has been second to none, and it has opened up opportunities that I never thought possible. I feel strongly that the skills I have learnt whilst at Northumbria have enabled me to gain a fantastic graduate job at the FTSE 100 company, Taylor Wimpey

Matthew Hall
MSc Project Management (Amsterdam)

Choosing to study at Northumbria University is easily a decision I would make over and over again. I started studying right after graduating from my bachelor’s degree at AUAS, forgoing the need for a pre-master. While studying the MSc Project Management programme in Northumbria’s Amsterdam Campus, I learnt the essential frameworks of managing projects from a variety of different, highly educated lectures whilst also studying with a diverse group of classmates. The combination of the education, the location, and social life (in the form of an active student society) have made studying at Northumbria an absolute pleasure. The skills that I have learnt have helped me improve my daily work life already, increasing my over efficiency and value as an employee. I even enjoy managing projects now.
