Please keep in mind that the housing market in Amsterdam is very competitive and that applying for student houding through the UvA does not guarantee placement. Therefore, we advise you to start your orientation for houding options early and to always explore the private housing market as well. The UvA houding service is always offered for a fixed period of one year (i.e. two semesters) to new incoming international students.
The introduction day for the Research Master Child Development and Education will take place in the week before the start of the new academic year. Make sure that you attend the introduction day, so you can meet your fellow students and teachers.
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.
Once you are admitted, follow the instructions provided by the faculty or programme staff regarding courses for which you might need to register separately.
