Are you interested in applying for our Bachelor’s in Economics and Business Economics and have you completed your prior education outside of the Netherlands? Please follow the application process on this page. This includes students who obtained their International Baccalaureate (IB) in the Netherlands.
The application process consists of 6 steps.
The Admissions Office will evaluate your eligibility based on 4 criteria:
After registering in Studielink, you will receive your UvAnetID. You need this student number to apply via our online application system Embark. Do not forget to keep an eye on the deadlines!
Students with an international secondary school diploma in combination with a HBO-P can skip this step.
You will receive your (conditional) results within 4-6 weeks after you submitted a fully completed application form in Embark. The earlier your apply, the sooner you will know the outcome.
UvA Matching is an online introduction to the Bachelor’s programme. It is designed to assess whether the programme is a good fit for you.
Your tuition fee needs to be credited to the UvA’s bank account 1 day before your degree programme starts at the latest, so 31 August for a September start.
Once you are admitted, follow the instructions provided by the department or programme staff about visa, housing, practical matters and further enrolment at the University.
