Coronavirus: consequences for transition to Master's programmes for Bachelor's students studying at a Dutch university 

Some students have encountered delays in the final phase of their Bachelor's or Pre-Master's as a result of measures in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. In certain exceptional cases, to prevent these students from getting stuck, the UvA is making it possible to begin a Master's before completing the previous programme. For more information, see the section on ‘Enrolment and admission’ at

The Master's programmes will inform prospective students no later than 15 May regarding the specific requirements for enrolment in a UvA Master's in the 2020-2021 academic year. This information and relevant deadlines will be posted on the study programme pages.
