Who can apply

The School is open to local and international research oriented master students, with students from the Master in Brain and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Amsterdam having preference for allocation. Students will be able to take this School for credits (4 ECTS). The official language of the School, including all lectures and activities, will be English.

Fees, application process and deadlines

Students who are enrolled in a Dutch Master's programme will be credited with 4 ECTS upon successful completion of the ABC Summer School. They can participate in the ABC Summer School and join the closing ABC Symposium free of charge. For other EU or non-EU students, or interested others who are not currently enrolled in a Master's programme, a fee of € 399,- applies. This fee covers both the ABC Summer School and the ABC Symposium.

It’s not possible to apply for the Summer School anymore as the maximum capacity is reached.

Registration for the ABC symposium on June 27th is required for people that don’t take part in the summer school.
