Introduction days

Introduction days

Introduction days are a great way to explore Amsterdam and meet other students before you start your studies at the UvA.

Choosing a programme

The UvA offers several different introduction programmes for Dutch and international students doing a Bachelor’s, Master’s or exchange programme. Once you have been admitted to the UvA, you will be invited to complete your registration online. This is when you can sign up for the introduction days. Be sure to choose the right introduction programme when registering. Check the table below to see which programme applies to you.

Coaches (coaching is temporarily unavailable due to Covid-19)

Are you already studying at the UvA? This is your chance to relive the introduction programme as a coach! The ISN is currently looking for Dutch and international students to take part in the various programmes as coaches.
