UvA Matching for Bachelor’s programmes*

UvA Matching is a mandatory part of the application procedure for all prospective Bachelor’s students who have completed their prior education at a Dutch educational institution.

International students who have applied for a Bachelor’s programme with an international pre-university diploma are not required to take part in UvA Matching.

Please note, however, that international students who have applied for a Bachelor’s programme with a hbo-propedeuse (a first-year diploma from a Dutch university of applied sciences) are required to take part in UvA Matching. For more information, please visit the page on UvA Matching.
