In order to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus, the UvA Bachelor's Day on 14 March was unfortunately cancelled. However, we did make video recordings of the information sessions that took place with no audience present. Below, you can view the information session for Ancient Studies. Although an online information session is not on par with an actual information session at the UvA itself, we still hope the video will give you enough information in order to take the next step in your study choice process.
