Alternative exam period for US and Canadian Exchange Students

The UvA academic year may conflict with the academic year at the home institutions of some American and Canadian exchange students.

Students affected by such a conflict may need to take UvA exams at an earlier date than those listed in the normal academic schedule. These students should contact the exchange program coordinator (aexp-fdr@uva.nl) to schedule exams on an earlier date.

Alternative exam dates are only available to students from US and Canadian law schools that have exchange agreements with the UvA. All other students must take exams according to normal exam schedules.
