Vaccination, self-tests and what to do in case of infection

  • Am I obliged to have proof of a corona vaccination before starting my programme?

    The UvA advises every employee and student to get a vaccination if that is possible. However, we will not ask for a proof of vaccination. If getting a vaccination is not an option, we advise you to test for COVID-19 using a self-test kit before visiting the campus. We will also not ask for proof associated with the results of a self-test. You can request a free self-test through zelftestonderwijs.nl or you can pick one up at the reception.

  • What should I do in case of a corona virus infection?

    Follow the advice from the Municipal Health Service (GGD) and stay at home. Also contact the study advisers. They will ask you when you were on the campus for the last time, and in which rooms you have been. If you are not feeling too ill, they can also help you to arrange online education until you can go back to the campus.
