Princess Catharina-Amalia to enrol on £3,760 per year course at University of Amsterdam


The Dutch Royal Family announced Princess Catharina-Amalia, 18, will study politics, psychology, law and economics at the University of Amsterdam in a statement on Monday. The statement said: “Her Royal Highness the Princess of Orange will start the upcoming academic year at the University of Amsterdam with the bachelor’s degree in Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE).

“The study has an application and selection procedure, which the Princess of Orange went through in its entirety last year.

“She will live in Amsterdam in September. Accommodation will be rented that the Princess will share with some fellow students.

“The Princess’s study time is considered private.”

A photo of Princess Catharina-Amalia sitting beside one of the Dutch capital’s famous canals was also shared on Instagram to share the news.

According to the University of Amsterdam’s website, a British student would need to obtain a minimum of ABB at A-Level in order to join Catharina-Amalia on the course.

The PPLE College also revealed it received close to 1750 applications for this year’s intake.

The course costs €4,418 (£3,762.73) per year for Dutch and EU/EEA students.

However, for non-EU/EEA students, the PPLE course costs €13,300 (£11,325.85) per year.

According to Times Higher Education, the University of Amsterdam was ranked as the world’s 65th best further education institution in 2022.

The University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Imperial College London and University College London led the UK’s charge as they all ended up in the top 20.

“In 1987, Prince Willem-Alexander followed in the academic footsteps of his mother Beatrix, his aunt Margriet and his grandmother Juliana, and started his History studies in Leiden.

“In 1993, he graduated based on a thesis on the French exit from NATO’s integrated command structure, and the way the Netherlands responded to this.”

Catharina-Amalia took a gap year after completing her studies at the Christelijk Gymnasium Sorghvliet in the Hague last June.

Catharina-Amalia also wrote to Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, 55, to waive her right to €1.6million (£1.4million) a year in income and personal and household expenses.

In her letter, the Dutch heir apparent said: “I find that uncomfortable as long as I do not do anything for it in return, and while other students have a much tougher time of it, particularly in this period of coronavirus.”
