Academic year 2021-2022: 
Education at the UvA, come to Amsterdam

For this academic year, teaching activities on the campus will be possible again.

Our starting point is that in academic year 2021-2022 we will be able to offer all teaching activities on campus without restrictions. All students (including international ones) are therefore expected to return to Amsterdam in academic year 2021-2022. More information.

Our campuses

The UvA has four campuses located across Amsterdam. Some classes are in quaint old buildings overlooking the canals, others in high-tech laboratories. Take a digital stroll through our campuses.

UvA introduction activities

The introduction days are a great way to get to know the UvA, explore Amsterdam and meet other students before you start your studies. The UvA offers three different introduction programmes, for students who start a Bachelor’s, for international Master's students, and students who join an Exchange programme.

    What does the study programme look like this academic year?

    We provide full education. Normally, you follow education on campus. If the measures become stricter again, education will continue online. Practicals do take place on campus.

    Higher education in the academic year 2021-2022 will be provided on campus. This is based on a maximum of 75 people per lecture. Lectures by more than 75 students are given in hybrid form. This means that a maximum of 75 students are present, and that the other students follow this lecture online at the same time.

    In this way we comply with the principle of equality (all students have the same access to education).

    Whether you follow online or physical education: we do everything we can to ensure that you get the best out of your studies.

    The students are further informed by the study programme. Keep an eye on the Canvas page of your study programme.
