You are more likely to be successful in your studies, if you choose the right discipline. Therefore, UvA Matching is an essential part of your enrolment in a Bachelor’s programme. Through Matching, you familiarise yourself with the programme, before it begins. Participation in UvA Matching is recommended for all students.


The online Matching will start the first of June 2020. You can complete the Matching exam at your convenience, until 12 June 2020 at the latest.

More information will follow as soon as possible on the UvA website

Do you have questions about the application process? Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions.

The matching procedure takes place through our online learning platform Canvas. Here, you can:

  • read the instructions
  • study the literature
  • watch an online lecture on the same topic
  • complete the matching exam

Upon completion of the Matching exam, you will receive your grade. Thereafter, you will receive your official personal (non-binding) matching advice on the basis of your test results.

Any questions on the Matching can be addressed to the Education Desk Social Sciences through or (0031) (0)20-525 3777.
