To campus

In the 2021-2022 academic year at UvA Economics and Business you can resume attending classes and education activities on campus, so you'll be able to meet your lecturers and fellow students face-to-face. We therefore expect you - both national and international students - in Amsterdam or the surrounding areas as of 31 August 2021 (new students) and 6 September 2021 (current students).

In the coming weeks, keep an eye on your email and check Canvas and your course schedule for more information about your study programme and courses.

If you cannot come to Amsterdam because you are facing a travel restriction due to government-imposed COVID-19 regulations, we will temporarily offer online solutions. This way, you can follow your education fully online until the restriction is lifted. For the time being, this only applies in period 1 (until 22 October 2021).

FAQs are available regarding education in 2021-2022 and the impact of COVID-19 on UvA Economics and Business.

Building on active learning

At UvA Economics and Business we will continue to build on active learning with an optimal blend of on-campus and online learning activities. By applying these different teaching methods you will experience challenging education with a focus on interaction, feedback and group-work. During classes there will be more time for in-depth analyses and interaction with your lecturer and peers.
