Applicants from abroad, who wish to enrol in the Master’s programme Youth at risk, must meet a number of requirements regarding academic level and background and proficiency in English. Students with an academic Bachelor’s degree in Child Development Science (Pedagogische wetenschappen), (Developmental) Psychology, Sociology or a closely related discipline are invited to apply, provided they meet all other entry requirements.
International degrees are evaluated by professional credential evaluators of the UvA. The minimum level of the degree should be equivalent to a Dutch academic Bachelor’s degree. Educational systems vary considerably across the world; some Bachelor's degrees are valued at three years of a Dutch university education, while others are valued at two years or less. During the application process we will ask you to upload the documents needed for the credential evaluation. Students whose application is based on a diploma from a university in a non-EU/EEA country have to pay an application fee of 100 euro.
After submitting your enrolment application in Studielink, you will receive an email with your UvAnetID. Follow the instructions in the email to activate your ID as you will need it to complete your UvA application.
All students applying for a master’s degree programme with an international bachelor’s diploma are required to pay a non-refundable €100 application fee in SIS by credit card (Master or Visacard) or iDEAL. Only after you have paid this fee the UvA can start to process your application in MyInfo. It is not possible to start an application without paying the application fee.
Note: that it can take up to 24 hours for your fee payment to be registered in SIS. Make sure to pay your application fee in time and at least 24 hours before the application deadline of your programme.
Applying for programmes at multiple Graduate Schools?
You only have to pay the fee once. So, you can apply to multiple programmes.

Within 4-6 weeks the admission committee will inform you by e-mail.
After you have been (conditionally) accepted to the Master’s programme and we have sent you the letter of (conditional) acceptance, you will receive an Accept Offer sent to you by MyInfo. Please follow the instructions and confirm this Accept Offer. We will only continue to further process your application, including your housing and possibly visa application, after you have confirmed our Accept Offer.
For international students:
If you are an international student, you will need to arrange a variety of practical matters before starting your studies. This includes your visa or residence permit, insurance and housing. You will receive an email with more information about this after you have been admitted.
The UvA does not offer student housing on our campuses. We recommend that you familiarise yourself with the housing market in the Netherlands before you choose your study programme. It can be difficult to find available housing in Amsterdam, so you will need to start looking for yourself as soon as possible via Dutch student housing websites. For international students, the UvA has limited number of rooms available throughout Amsterdam, which you can apply for via UvA Housing. Please note there are not enough rooms available via UvA Housing to accommodate all international students. As placement for UvA Housing is not guaranteed, we advise you to start your orientation for housing options early and to always explore the private housing market as well.
The introduction of the Master's track Youth at Risk is scheduled at the end of August or the beginning of September. Make sure that you attend, so you can meet your fellow students and teachers. You will receive a lot of information about how the master is compiled and what is expected of you.
A student ID card is a personal card which serves as proof of identity for examinations or borrowing library books. You will receive instructions on how to request your student ID card.
