Information for students with International prior education (Including students who obtained their IB in the Netherlands).
UvA Matching is a mandatory part of your application procedure. It is an online introduction to the Bachelor’s programme you applied for. It is designed to assess whether your chosen programme is a good fit for you and if you are making the right study choice. By participating in UvA Matching you get to know your study programme and you experience studying at the University of Amsterdam.
After you apply for this programme in Studielink, you will receive an email with your UvAnetID and information on how to complete your Enrolment Checklist. More information on how to apply for UvA Matching can be found on the Checklist.
At UvA Economics and Business, we offer online matching 4 times a year. During the matching round of your choice, you have one week to study the provided online materials at your own pace.
You complete UvA Matching by taking an online test. The results of this test will be used to compose a personal study advice. This advice aims to help you make the right choice for next year.
During UvA Matching you will engage in several study activities that will give you an idea of what to expect from the Bachelor’s programme. This includes:
We offer UvA Matching online from March to May once every month. There are 4 assigned periods in which you can complete UvA Matching, which we call rounds.
