At an earlier point, events that were not directly related to education and research had already been postponed. Since 14 Octobor this also applies to events that are indeed related to education and research, such as small-scale symposia. These cannot be held until the government removes any further restrictions.
Below you will find the temporary event protocol for events at UvA. Sadly the protocol does not apply at this time, until corona-measures issued by the government allow events to take place again.
From 3 May 2021 onwards, PhD defence ceremonies can take place on site in a limited form.
Sadly, graduation ceremonies are also not allowed to take place offline.
How graduation ceremonies and degree ceremonies are organised is being determined by the faculties and study programmes. Contact the Education Desk of your study programme if you have any questions.
For questions, help or advice concerning the planning, organisation, execution or cancellation of events, you can contact UvA Conferences & Events: email@example.com.
Now that we are allowed on campus again (in a limited capacity), more offline activities and gatherings are possible - if approved by your faculty's Head of Operations. The Executive Board has therefore decided to repeat the Keep in Touch campaign.
Perhaps you're already familiar with the campagin because your study association has already organised an activity via Keep in Touch earlier in the year. Study associations could apply for a budget for social activities earlier in the year by sending in great ideas. At that time, mainly online activities were organised such as an online yoga and an online silent disco party.
Now, a new round of Keep in Touch has started with slightly altered conditions and with the possibility of organising more online activities. To celebrate all study associations can apply for the Keep in Touch fund once again. Ask your study association how you can submit an idea together and check out the Keep in Touch page for the application form and conditions.
