UvA Matching

Discover whether your chosen Bachelor’s programme is the right fit

UvA Matching takes place after you have submitted your application for a Bachelor’s programme and will provide an introduction to that programme.


UvA matching is mandatory for all prospective students who are applying for the first time for a UvA Bachelor's programme and who have not previously studied at the UvA. It is designed to help you assess whether you have chosen the right programme to match your interests, capabilities and study skills. The Matching activity differs per programme but may consist of taking part in a sample lecture, studying course material and/or taking a test.

Two types of UvA Matching

The type of UvA Matching in which you will participate depends on where you completed your prior education.
