Together, the VU and the UvA organise several joint Bachelor's and Master's programmes. The ACASA Bachelor's programmes are mainly taught in Dutch, although two English-taught programmes are also offered. The ACASA Master's programmes are all taught in English.

Students from all over the world (more than 60 nationalities) study at the Graduate Schools of both participating universities each year. Students with a completed Bachelor's degree in Classics, Archaeology or Ancient Studies can seek admission to the Master's degree programmes on offer. All master programmes can be completed taking courses taught in English only. Detailed information about the admission criteria can be found on the webpages describing the different study programmes (choose Bachelor's or Master's below, then click on the study programme you wish to learn more about). During the admission process, international students will receive help with enrolling at the universities, finding accommodation and acquiring the correct visa.

ACASA students also organise various activities. You can find out more about these by following the link below.
