Admission to the Master's Programme Artificial Intelligence is possible for students with one of the following qualifications:
Please note that we require formal academic European Credits (EC) from a higher education institution. Online courses, work experience and other forms of experience will not be accepted.
In addition to the admission requirements referred to above the student has to comply with the following additional requirements:
A maximum of 200 students are admitted to the Master's programme Artificial Intelligence in 2024-2025.
Candidates will be selected in the following way. First, candidates will have to meet the requirements and additional requirements as stated above. Subsequently all the candidates eligible for admission to the programme will be ranked by the ranking criteria. Each ranking criterion will be classified/assessed according to five categories: excellent, very good, good, sufficient, insufficient.
Selection will be based on the following ranking criteria:
The ranking criteria apply to all candidates who have met the requirements and additional requirements as stated above.
The Admissions Board will judge requests for admission on criteria mentioned above and select students on an individual basis and in comparison to the other applicants. These criteria will not be applied mechanically, but manually with careful consideration and judgement. For example, the value of the GPA may depend on a students' curriculum, publications may be more or less high ranked, etc.
The top 200 candidates on the ranking list will be admitted to the Master's programme. The Admissions Board will grant admission to the selected candidates.
Due to an enormous increase in interest and applications in the Master's programme Artificial Intelligence, we do not offer a pre-Master's programme.
Unfortunately, due to the large number of applications, it is not possible to give any individual pre-registration advice (by e-mail) or to meet to discuss prior education and/or a possible admission in the upcoming academic year. To inform you about your (possible) admittance to the Master's programme it is necessary that you apply for the programme.
Within 48 hours after submitting your enrolment application in Studielink, you will receive an email with your UvAnetID and an email with instructions for the next step of the application process. Follow the instructions in the email to activate your UvAnetID as you will need it to complete your UvA application.
Only after activating your UvAnetID, you can submit your UvA online application via DataNose.
Please make sure to upload the required documents in PDF format. Applicants who (will) hold more than one academic degree must merge copies of all academic transcripts into one PDF.
In DataNose we expect you to upload the following documents:
Please make sure you have uploaded all the required documents, as you can't add any documents after submitting. Only your English scores can be sent in later.
If you have any questions about the required documents as a student with a Dutch degree, please contact the Education Desk.
As soon as you have submitted the (sufficiently) complete online form in DataNose, your application file will be acknowledged. It differs per programme how long it takes before you are informed via email about the decision on admission. We strive to process each application within 6 weeks. An admission will always be conditional as we must still verify your documents (consult step 8). You can track the status of your admission using the checklist in DataNose.
If you are conditionally admitted to the Master's programme you will receive an admissions letter by means of email. In the letter you will find a link to DataNose to accept or decline your place in the programme. This has to be done within two weeks. If you have questions about this, please contact the Education Desk.
If you are (conditionally) admitted then do check your DataNose application. The link in your checklist gives you all required information about the verification of your previous education.
A student ID card is a personal card which serves as proof of identity for examinations or borrowing library books. After admission, you will receive instructions on how to request your student ID card.
In order to complete your enrolment for a degree programme at the UvA you will need to pay the tuition fee.
