Step 1: Which minor would you like to take?
It is important to familiarise yourself with the options. An overview of all the minors offered by the UvA can be found here. Once you have chosen a minor, assess whether you meet the entry requirements. Some minors have an application deadline and/or limited capacity. For this reason, please make sure to consider the options and apply for admission in good time. You may also be required to ask your own degree programme's Examinations Board for permission to take a minor.
- Step 2: When you have been admitted, enrol as an elective student through Studielink
Step 3: Apply for admission through the application form so your potential admission can be assessed
Apply for admission to the minor using the online application form. You can find this form on the minor page on uva.nl/minoraanbod.
The Student Administration will assess you application and consult the minor coordinator if applicable. You will receive a decision on your admission by email. Processing your application for admission may take up to 10 working days. You will not be able to register for courses in the meantime; see Step 4. Would you like to be sure that you will be able to start the minor? Make sure that you apply for admission before the start of the course registration period. For UvA students we advise to apply before 1 June and for non-UvA students we advise to apply before 15 May.
Step 4: Check the course registration procedure for your minor
If you wish to take part in a degree programme, you must have a valid course registration. As a minor student, registering for courses will usually be your own responsibility. More information about course registration will be shared in the admissions email.
If you have any problems registering for courses, please contact the Education Desk as soon as possible.
