Quality of education

An ambitious academic culture

The UvA’s educational ambitions are reflected in a culture characterised by motivation, drive and a commitment to the study programme. This ambitious academic culture is based on the UvA’s expectations of its students and the study programmes’ dedication to bringing out their best qualities. 

The UvA expects its students to have fully familiarised themselves with the nature of an academic education during their prior studies, to devote sufficient time to their studies, to take an active interest in the various activities organised by the University and to participate in a spirit of shared responsibility. This ambitious academic culture is further strengthened by means of reliable and realistic information regarding the study programmes, sufficient contact hours, intensive student counselling and a strong culture of professionalism amongst lecturers.
