Applying for a Master's programme

Every programme at the University of Amsterdam has its own entry requirements, application procedure and deadlines. Find out how to apply for a programme by following the step-by step guide in the application and admission section of each programme.

Coronavirus

Due to the coronavirus, there have been some changes to the application deadline for Master’s programmes. More information will be available on each programme page soon.

Coronavirus: consequences for transition to Master's programmes for Bachelor's students studying at a Dutch university

For the transition from the Bachelor's phase to the Master's, the UvA has opted for a so-called 'soft cut' with some restrictions. This is so that students who, because of the coronavirus measures, experience delays in the final phase of their Bachelor's programme, don’t find themselves stuck in between a Bachelor's and Master's programme. You can find the latest information on the updates page on uva.nl/coronavirus, under 'Application and admission'.

All Master's programmes will inform prospective students before 15 May about any specific conditions for progressing to the Master’s phase for the academic year 2020-2021. Please keep checking the individual programme pages for this information as well as deadlines.
