Students of the Faculty of Medicine must follow the guidelines of Amsterdam University Medical Center (Amsterdam UMC), which can be found on the Tulp intranet system. For Medicine students these Amsterdam UMC guidelines prevail over the information on the UvA website.
Students of the Faculty of Dentistry must follow ACTA guidelines. These can be found on ACTAnet and Canvas. This means that for dentistry students, the ACTA guidelines prevail over the information on the UvA website.
In view of the stricter and extended measures announced by the cabinet, we would like to advise staff to communicate clearly to (potential) applicants how the application process will proceed (for example, conversations via Skype, start date of employment, etc.). An extra paragraph has been included for this in the vacancy format.
Because of the coronavirus outbreak, the application process for many research grants is changing. For example, deadlines may be postponed. And other steps in the grant application process, such as interviews or response periods, may be delayed, moved or prolonged.
Most grant providers have a special web page about the changes in the application process resulting from the coronavirus outbreak. They are regularly updated. See below for an overview various grant providers and their measures in response to the coronavirus outbreak:

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has decided that students can apply for financial support in the following situations:
The financial support is not intended for students who are falling behind in their studies because of adjustments to the educational programme resulting from the corona measures.
Students who wish to apply and who meet one or more of the above criteria and the standard criteria of the Profiling Fund can contact their study adviser.
We understand that this is a very unpleasant situation. DUO offers the option of temporarily borrowing more per month. This can also be done retroactively, back to the beginning of the academic year. You can also apply for tuition fee credit. You can arrange this yourself with DUO. Check the DUO website for more information.
Compenstation due to the coronavirus
Students who obtain their Master's diploma between 1 September 2020 and 31 January 2021 will receive a one-off payment of € 535 from DUO after 1 March 2021 as compensation for any study delay caused by coronary measures. This amount equals 3 months of statutory tuition fees.
If your details are known to DUO, you do not have to do anything and DUO will automatically transfer the amount at the end of March. If any details are missing, DUO will contact you to request them. In that case, it will take longer for you to receive the money.
(Foreign) students who go or live abroad and students who are not involved with DUO, can provide a foreign address at the municipality where they were last registered, then this will be entered in the Non-Residents Register (RNI). This information is then also sent to DUO. In this way, DUO can contact you in writing to request any missing data.
For more information, please consult the DUO website.
