Princess Amalia has secured a place at the University of Amsterdam to study Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics from September.
The government’s information service (RVD) said the heir to the throne, who turned 18 in December, had passed the university’s admissions and selection procedure.
The RVD added that the princess would be sharing a house in Amsterdam with other students when she begins in September.
From her second year she will be able to claim €255 a month as a student living away from home after the government restored grants for the 2023-24 academic year.
The choice of Amsterdam marks a break with the royal tradition of studying in Leiden, where her father, King Willem-Alexander, graduated in history in 1993. The former queens Beatrix and Juliana, as well as Beatrix’s sister Margriet, also studied in Leiden.
