About the University

Diversity and inclusion

We live in an increasingly diverse and globalised world. As a university with deep roots in society, our aim is to foster a diverse academic community, one where people from all walks of life feel at home, regardless of gender, age, background, beliefs or sexual orientation.

The UvA has taken steps in recent years to foster diversity and provide support for refugees. In the coming years, we will continue to work hard to become a more equal, inclusive, and diverse place to study and conduct research.
