Below is a list of frequently asked questions about the Bachelor's programme in Psychology. You will find a lot of answers here about enrollment, Studielink, requirements, the application form and the application outcome.

  • Studielink tells me that my previous education has to be verified. What should I do?

    This is a message that Studielink shows automatically. You can ignore this message as long as you complete the entire application procedure before the deadline (see information listed under the header 'application and admission' on the our website). If we receive your application on time, our credential evaluation team will verify whether your degree meets the standards of our programme.

  • I did not get an email with a link to the application form. What should I do?
    1. Make sure you have completed your registration in Studielink.
    2. The Central Student Administration will send you an email with a link to the application form within 1 or 2 days after your registration in Studielink. Please keep an eye on your inbox and do not forget to check your spam box.
    3. Make sure you check the inbox that corresponds with the email address you filled out in Studielink.
    4. You can also check your application form via https://myinfo.uva.nl/

    Note that the Student Desk Psychology cannot speed up the process of sending you the link to the application form. Please make sure you register on time. We recommend you start your application at least a couple of days before the deadline, in order to avoid complications or delay.

General questions 

  • Can you check my curriculum and tell me if I am eligible?

    Whether or not you meet the requirements is something we can check after having received your application. We do not do pre-checks of your curriculum to see whether you are eligible.

    It is initially up to your judgement to see if you meet the requirements for the Bachelor’s programme in Psychology. We know this may be difficult being a student from another country. However, we can only evaluate your file once we have received your entire application.

    Check the list of country qualifications. These qualifications are approved for admission to the Bachelor's programme in Psychology. 

Questions about the requirements 

  • Do I need specific grades for entry?

    All information about accepted diploma’s and grades can be found in the diploma calculator. If no specific grades are mentioned, you do not need to obtain specific grades. You then only have to pass your exams to be eligible for admission.
