The UvA has 51 new Bachelor's students from Ukraine this year, compared to 19 last year. This year, Ukrainian students can study at the UvA at the regular (lower) tuition fee rate, rather than the institutional rate that applies to students from other non-EEA countries.

This year, there are 6,448 new students in the Master's programmes. This is 398 fewer than last year, when the figure was 6,846 (-5.8%). A drop is evident in both the number of new Master's students from the Netherlands, from 4,249 to 3,850 (-9.4%), and from EEA countries, from 1,610 to 1,569 (-2.5%). The number from outside Europe, on the other hand, rose from 987 to 1,029 (+4.3%).
The majority of new Master's students from EEA countries come from Germany (342 students), Italy (184) and Greece (116). From outside the EEA, the majority come from China (413), the United States (106) and India (69).
The intake of Master's students from the United Kingdom has declined remarkably, from 80 to 52 (-35%). There are 20 new Master's students from Ukraine, versus 17 last year.
