Pilot International Baccalaureate

In 2022-2023 the UvA will be running a pilot to make the application process easier for applicants who have or will obtain an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma before 31 August 2022.

Applicants who meet the criteria below no longer have to submit an application file  to have their previous education assessed by the Admissions Office. Eligible students now only have to request the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to send us the digital results of their IB diploma no later than 31 August 2022.

For whom?

This pilot is open for EEA nationals with an application for one of the Bachelor’s programmes listed below.

  • B Ancient Studies - English language track only
  • B Archeology- English language track only
  • B English Language and Culture
  • B European Studies - English language track only
  • B Linguistics
  • B Literary Studies
  • B Media and Culture - English language track only
  • B Media and Information
  • B Psychology*

Note: Psychology is a fixed quota programme with selective admission requirements. Read more about their compulsory selection procedure.

Next steps

As an IB student you need to request the International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) to send us the digital results of your IB diploma as soon as possible. We need to verify your diploma no later than 31 August 2022. We do not need any other documents or a resume from you.

Please use one of the following services for your final IB Diploma Programme results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam.

Before the release of results

If you make a request before July 2022 (for May examination sessions) or January 2022 (for November examination sessions), you should contact your Diploma Programme coordinator to submit a request to the IB on your behalf for your results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam. The University of Amsterdam IB institute code is: 000602.

For more information, please visit the IB website.

After the release of results

After July 2022 (for May examination sessions) or January 2022 (for November examination sessions), IB graduates can request for their results to be sent directly to the University of Amsterdam using the form on https://rrs.ibo.org.

Or send us a certified copy

Although the University of Amsterdam prefers to verify your IB results online, alternatively you may send certified documents of your IB diploma and transcript via regular mail to the UvA.

What is a certified copy?

A certified copy is a photocopy of the original IB diploma or transcript with a wet ink stamp and signature from your school/university or from a notary. Uncertified photocopies or scanned copies of original documents will not be accepted. Do not send us the original documents.
