    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.

    In DataNose we expect you to upload the following documents:

    1.  A motivation letter in English (max. 500 words)
    2.  Your Curriculum Vitae in English
    3.  A copy of your Bachelor’s transcript

    5.  A description of your Bachelor thesis/project

    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 an international degree student, please contact the International Team.

  • 6. Wait for admission decision

    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.

After (conditional) admission

  • 7. Accept or decline offer

    If you are conditionally admitted to the Master’s programme you will receive an admissions letter by means of email. 

  • 8. Submit certified documents

    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.

  • 9. Request student ID card

    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.
