The application process consists of 6 steps.
1. Check the entry requirements
The Admissions Office will evaluate your eligibility based on 4 criteria:
- Secondary school diploma
- English proficiency
- Mathematics proficiency
- UvA Matching
- 2. Register in Studielink
3. Submit your online application in Embark
After registering in Studielink, you will receive your UvAnetID. You need this student number to apply via our online application system Embark. Do not forget to keep an eye on the deadlines!
Students with an international secondary school diploma in combination with a HBO-P can skip this step.
4. Wait for the admission results
You will receive your (conditional) results within 4-6 weeks after you submitted a fully completed application form in Embark. The earlier your apply, the sooner you will know the outcome.
5. Participate in UvA Matching
UvA Matching is an online introduction to the Bachelor’s programme. It is designed to assess whether the programme is a good fit for you.
6. Pay the tuition fee
Your tuition fee needs to be credited to the UvA’s bank account 1 day before your degree programme starts at the latest, so 31 August for a September start.
Once you are admitted, follow the instructions provided by the department or programme staff about visa, housing, practical matters and further enrolment at the University.
