Choosing the degree programme that is a perfect fit for you will increase the chance of being successful in your academic studies. Therefore, UvA Matching is an essential part of your enrolment in a Bachelor’s programme. It will allow you to do a final check on the programme of your choice, before actually becoming a student of Computational Social Science. Please note: Participation in UvA Matching is obligatory for all new bachelor's students at the University of Amsterdam and other Dutch universities.

If you have applied for our Computational Social Science programme and have received a positive admission decision, you are able to sign up for the course ‘Matching Computational Social Science’ via the ‘Checklist application’. You will receive an email with more information about the Matching procedure and activities in the course before the end of May 2022.

Our Matching will be offered online between Thursday June 2nd  – Thursday June 16th. It will consist of activities that give you a little taste of the contents and setup of the programme and enable you to become acquainted with our teaching staff and (potential) fellow students.

(deadline Thursday June 16th, 11.59 PM Amsterdam/CET)

2. Self-study of course materials + online assessment
