Transferring to the Bachelor's programme in Psychology at the UvA - Psy

Students with an unfinished Bachelor's degree in Psychology from another Dutch university can submit a transfer request to see at what point in the programme they can be admitted to the UvA. In any case the first (propaedeutic) year has to have been completed to request a transfer.


The modules already attained will be examined to see where exemptions can be granted and to determine which modules still need to be taken at the UvA in order to finish the Bachelor's degree programme here. The curriculum at the UvA will be compared module by module to that of the other Dutch university.

Between 15 June and 2 July you can submit a transfer request for the coming academic year. To do so, please fill in the form below. You will be asked for details, including an upload of your list(s) of grades with courses already obtained.


Possible delay

As curricula always differ from each other in some respects, it may well be that no exemptions for modules are granted. Many second-year modules at the UvA may not be started if the first year has not been completed, so transferring to the UvA can lead to delays.

This means that transferring with an unfinished Bachelor's programme (for example with one or two modules unfinished at the original university) can be very disadvantageous and lead to a study completion delay. For this reason students are often advised against transferring to the UvA with an almost finished Bachelor's degree in Psychology from another university.

After you have received the advice of the Examinations Board, we recommend you discuss your planning with one of our study advisers. You will also receive help with your course registration, if needed
