What is your study programme?

The tiqr app allows you to log in to your UMC account from home or elsewhere. General messages sent by Amsterdam UMC (from the hospital) are addressed to @amsterdamumc.nl. Additionally, you have a UvA email address in Microsoft 365. All messages sent by the UvA and the Faculty of Medicine are addressed to @student.uva.nl.

Problems with UMC email address or password

Are you unable to change the password of your Amsterdam UMC account, has your password expired or is your account blocked and are you unable to log in? Get in touch with the ICT-servicedesk of the AMC. Your password cannot be altered over the phone, but it’s expiration can be postponed to allow you to change it yourself.

Has the AMC HR department informed you that your email address will be terminated whilst your clinical internship is ongoing? You have two positions that are linked to your UMC account: your employee position (for your clinical internship) and your student position:

  • Has your employee position come to an end whilst you are still registered for the postgraduate course in Medicine? Then your UMC account will remain activated and you can ignore the email sent by HR.
  • Has your employee position come to an end and have you deregistered for the postgraduate course in Medicine? Then your UMC account will remain active for another three months before this is blocked. For these three months you can still use your email address.

Amsterdam UMC account and terminating your enrolment

If you (temporarily) terminate your enrolment for longer than three months, your student account will expire and you will no longer have access to your student email or Canvas. Your account will stay active for three months after your termination date.

Problems with tiqr

Get in touch with the ICT-servicedesk of the AMC if:

  • You have forgotten to activate tiqr and as a result can no longer log in.
  • You wish to (re)activate tiqr on a mobile device.
