Who can take part in the UvA panel?
All students and employees at the University of Amsterdam who have a UvA, AUC, ACTA or AMC email address.
What does a UvA panel member do?
As a panel member, you receive an invitation about ten times a year to give your opinion or advice on all kinds of topics. You can participate via an online survey or (online) interview. These studies have been selected especially for you. Your answers help the university improve its communication and services. Participation is voluntary; decide whether you want to participate per invitation.
What do I get in return?
It’s important to the UvA that the quality of its information and facilities meet the needs of students. Your opinion is therefore valuable and helps us continue to improve our services. To thank you for your input, you can win a Bol.com voucher when you participate in research. The value of the voucher depends on the length of the study.
How can I end my UvA panel membership?
If you no longer want to take part in the UvA panel, you can end your membership at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How often can I participate?
You can participate as many times as you are invited. How often that is, depends on the types of studies that are carried out. In some types of research, such as interviews, it is possible that there are limited spots available to participate.
How do I know when there’s a study I can participate in?
You will receive an email as soon as there’s a study you can participate in. For a questionnaire, this email will include the link through which you can take part directly. For (online) interviews, you can sign up through the email and will receive an official invitation to participate later.
How much time does it take to participate in a study?
The duration of a study depends on many factors. Filling out a questionnaire will take approximately 8 minutes and an interview will take roughly one hour. We will always let you know the duration of the study before you accept the invitation.

Each participant in a study is assigned a unique code. Based on these unique codes, participants are randomly selected to win a gift voucher. At the start of each study, the number of vouchers available will be communicated.
