Information Studies: Information Systems (track)

The Information Systems (IS) track in the Master's programme Information Studies is designed to give you the tools to analyse and create systems for the supply, storage and communication of information. IS is based on the intelligent communication between humans and information systems.

Education from September, the academic year 2020-2021

The academic year 2020-2021 will start as planned in September. We expect small-scale on-site attendance, within the guidelines of the Dutch government, will be possible once again from September. This means we will be providing a form of hybrid education in the first semester, partly on-campus and partly online. From 1 July it will be clear what our hybrid education is going to look like.

Admission during COVID-19
In exceptional cases, the UvA will allow you to start your Master’s programme before having fully completed your Bachelor’s degree. The study delay must be COVID-19 related and concern courses from the second semester of the 2019-2020 academic year (February through June 2020). Check the Application and Admission pages for more information.
