Education 2021-2022

UvA Economics and Business

Education on campus with on-campus and online course components with a focus on active learning.

The starting point at UvA Economics and Business (EB) is that you can follow education on campus and to meet each other. However, we must always take certain conditions into account. This means that there may be adjustments in education in the event of changes in government-imposed regulations. Stay posted via the UvA updates and this page.

Stricter measures for education

Due to increasing infection rates, the government has tightened corona measures again (13 November 2021). For education this means once again:

  • a maximum group size of 75 people per room, but this will not apply to rooms being used for exams.
  • it is required to wear a face mask in all UvA-buildings when moving through a building. Face masks may be removed when seated.

At UvA EB this changes the set-up of some of our lectures for the full duration of period 2 (until the Christmas break).

  • All lectures with more than 75 students will take place online.  
  • Your lecturer can decide to allow a maximum of 75 students to attend the lecture on campus.

Tutorials and other educational activities with less than 75 students will continue to take place on campus.

Keep an eye on your email and check Canvas and your course schedule for more information about your study programme and courses.

Answers to frequently asked questions

You can find answers to frequently asked questions about education and the impact of the corona virus at UvA EB.

Building on active learning

At UvA EB, we are also continuing to work on activating learning, in which students actively work with the material in order to understand the matter, acquire knowledge and apply it to develop analytical and critical skills.

In the further development of active learning, we will use the experiences we have gained with digital education in the last academic year. With the use of blended learning, the optimal mix of on-campus and online learning activities, you have challenging education with a lot of interaction, feedback and group-work. Online activities therefore remain a valuable part of our education.
