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 really start studying. This way, you will test your choice for a certain study programme. Participation in UvA Matching is mandatory for all students.

The online Matching will take place between May 30 and June 11

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 in May.

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 assignments

Upon completion of the Matching exam, 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.
