In the 2021-2022 academic year, we will continue to face coronavirus restrictions that have many consequences for students. By consequence, the UvA has decided to apply a generic easing of the binding study advice (BSA) standard in this year as well.

What does this mean in practice?

  • Full-time students who obtain six ECTS credits less than the BSA standard for their degree programme can still enrol for the following academic year.
  • The BSA standard is also being eased by six ECTS credits for part-time degree programmes.
  • Your degree programme can decide to apply a further easing if there is good reason for this. The dean of your degree programme will make this decision.
  • Your degree programme will let you know if this affects you.

Why has this decision been made?

Many students are being affected by stress and other negative issues due to the coronavirus pandemic. Easing the BSA standard can remove some of this stress. Moreover, the coronavirus restrictions have made it more difficult to assess whether students are a good match for a degree programme.

If you have any questions, please contact one of the academic career counsellors for your degree programme.
