Your study is not the end of your academic development. Students can remain affiliated with the UvA after their study through conducting PhD research or, for example, by becoming a member of the alumni network.
If you are interested in academia, then obtaining a doctorate may be something for you. As a doctoral student at the UvA, you will encounter an attractive, international research environment where you can optimally develop your research talent. The UvA has doctoral programmes in all sectors.
Everyone who has obtained a recognised university qualification (candidate’s degree, initial university degree, Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree or doctorate) from the University of Amsterdam is an alumnus of the UvA. In this way, alumni are part of the UvA’s academic community.
It may be possible that you don’t really know that you want to do after your study. You can then contact the Student Careers Centre.
