Request facilities on time

Make sure that you request a facility (or facilities) on time, so that your degree programme has enough time to arrange it for you. You must request education facilities at least four months before the start of your studies and examination facilities at least six weeks before your examination.

Bear in mind that facilities at the UvA may deviate from the facilities recommended by experts or other educational institutions. This means that the UvA won’t automatically offer you the same facilities as the ones you enjoyed in secondary school or at another higher education institution.

Requesting other facilities

Education facilities

If you require facilities other than the examination facilities, contact the study adviser for your degree programme. Do this at least four months before the start of your studies.
