Overall
Coming from the University of Luxembourg that follows in most part the French university system, University of Amsterdam offered a fresh breath of air. 
The professors in University of Amsterdam clearly care about their students and the success of the latter. 
My LLM programme also allowed me to pick and choose courses that I was the most interested in. 
Overall, the level of education is very high at the University of Amsterdam, even though I find myself to have quite a lot of free time, as the system is different to what I am used to. In the University of Amsterdam the students are expected to apply the material they've learned in a more theoretical and argumentative way, as opposed to the French system where the students have to read countless texts and are expected to memorise all of them.

Overall
La Universidad de Amsterdam es una de las más prestigiosas de Europa, y en mi caso, estoy estudiando un Master en Derecho Europeo allí. Considero algunas asignaturas bastante interesantes y otras totalmente inútiles, como por ejemplo "EU Regulated Markets", en la que 5 profesores distintos vinieron cada semana a explicarnos materias totalmente distintas, con lo que el exámen serían 5 preguntas sobre cada materia. Ya podía ser Banking Law, Data Protection, Environmental Law... por tanto, tocabas un poco de todo, pero no profundizabas en las materias que te interesaban más. En mi caso concreto, Data Protection me pareció muy interesante y sólamente pude atender a 1 clase de 3 horas sobre ella.

ABOUT
In 1632 the Athenaeum Illustre was founded in Amsterdam to educate students in Trade and Philosophy. As the establishment was not a proper university yet, lessons were generally given at the professors' homes. Until the nineteenth small institution with no more than 1877, the situation changed when the Athenaeum Illustre became the Universiteit van Amsterdam and was permitted to confer the highest educational degrees.
