Choosing the right study programme will increase your chance of being successful in your studies. For this reason, UvA Matching is an essential part of your enrollment in a Bachelor’s programme. You will get acquainted with the programme before you actually start studying. This way, you will be able to check your choice for a certain programme.

The Matching will take place online.

If you have applied for this program and you have received a positive admission decision, you can sign up for the course ‘matching’ via the ‘checklist application’. You will receive an e-mail with more information about the Matching process and when you can start this.

The matching procedure takes place through our online learning platform Canvas.

On Canvas, you can:

  • Read the instructions
  • Study literature
  • Watch two online lectures
  • Complete the online matching exam

There are 2 opportunities to take the matching exam, you can take the exam only once:

- Wednesday 20 April from 17:00 - 18:00 or Friday 17 June from 10:00 - 11:00

- Lectures and literature will be made available on Canvas 2 weeks before the test.

After completion of the Matching exam, you will receive your result. Thereafter, you will receive your official personal (non-binding) matching advice on the basis of your test results. It is strongly recommended to reconsider your choice of study if the advice is negative.
