I have a question concerning my admission. Who can I contact?
You can find this programme's admission criteria on the 'Application & admission' page. If you need further assistance, please contact the Central Student Service Desk.
What are my options when it comes to studying with a disability?
The UvA finds it important that students are able to develop in an optimal way within a stimulating and comfortable environment. If you have a disability, you may need special facilities and support. The UvA offers various kinds of support and counselling.
How do I go about finding accommodation and can the UvA assist me in this process?
Finding housing in Amsterdam is often difficult because of the high demand with regard to student accommodation, but by starting your search on time and putting in some effort, students usually succeed at finding something. Many students find accommodation by word of mouth or social media. First-year Bachelor's students who live more than 40 kilometres away from Amsterdam are given priority, which greatly increases their odds of finding accommodation.
