Take Off @ UvA

for (prospective) students with a refugee background

The process of applying to the University of Amsterdam and the first period of a new study program can be a challenge. Therefore the University of Amsterdam launched the programme Take Off @ UvA, to provide the necessary support for you as a new refugee student.

For whom

  • UvA-students with a refugee background, starting their study programme in September 2019
  • Duration: first semester

Languagecoach

Language can be an obstacle on the way of getting your diploma. Therefore, students with a refugee have the opportunity to attend an individual language coaching session in either English or Dutch. You can apply for these sessions by sending an e-mail to takeoff@uva.nl. Add a picture of your residence permit.
