The International Office Social Sciences aims to confirm receipt of nominations and applications within one week. Applicants receive the decision regarding their admission before 4 June (first semester and full year) 1 November (second semester). Accepted exchange students receive information letters by email. A tentative timeline of the coming academic year will be published in due time.
The University of Amsterdam housing office will send students information on the housing procedures by the end of May and late October. In the past years we were able to accommodate the majority of our incoming students, but unfortunately not all. Housing at the UvA is not guaranteed.
The rental periods are always fixed periods. Exchange students will automatically be assigned for one or two semesters (depending on the duration of the exchange).
Exchange students also receive the UvA Start Magazine and Start Newsletters.
