Registration: Terms and Conditions

Anyone over the age of 18 may register for a course:

  • Online: If you use Internet banking, you can pay the course fee using the Dutch internet banking service iDEAL immediately after completing the registration form. 
    If you pay by bank transfer from your account, remember to include your name, address and course number in the payment description.
    When we have received your registration form and payment, we will confirm receipt by email.
    Your registration can only be completed upon receipt of your payment.
  • At the reception desk: Payment is only possible by debit card; you will receive proof of payment immediately. Payment by credit card is not possible. The reception desk at 2 Javaplein is open Monday to Thursday, 14.00-16.00 pm (except for on public holidays).

Cancellations and changes

Approximately four working days before the scheduled start date we assess whether or not there are sufficient numbers of students for a course to go ahead. This is why it is not a good idea to wait until the last minute to register!
If there is insufficient interest in a course, we reserve the right to cancel it. We will inform you of this as soon as possible. In the event that Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam cancels a course, your course fee will be refunded in full.
The teachers named in the course information are subject to change; students will not be informed in writing of such changes.
The course information may include a maximum number of participants. We reserve the right to exceed this number if appropriate.

Refund of course fee

Up until eight days before the scheduled start date of a course or workshop, a refund of your course fee is possible. An administration fee of €13.50 will be retained. You are not entitled to a refund if you withdraw after this deadline.
For lectures or guided tours costing €22.50 or less, no refund is possible. You may, however, allow someone else to take your place.

Expired lessons

In case of dropout of the teacher (due to illnes of other reasons) the cancelled lesson(s) is/are usualy made up at the end of the course. We request that you take this into account when planning other activities!

Waiting list / Extra course

If you register for a course which is already fully booked, it is possible to join a waiting list. We will contact you if a place becomes available, or an extra group or course is scheduled.


Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam is not responsible or liable for damage to persons or property, nor for loss or theft of personal property occurring during courses or other activities organised by Volksuniversiteit Amsterdam.


By registering and paying the course fee you agree to be bound by the above terms and conditions
