Curriculum and electives

Last modified on 01-08-2022
Every curriculum consists of compulsory and optional components. Most Bachelor's and a number of Master's programmes allow you to take elective courses. Perhaps you'd like to immerse yourself in a different field of study to your main programme, at the UvA or even at another university. Or maybe you'd like to do an internship or study abroad. Find out what the options are.
