Freemover: start on time

  1. You’ll have to organise a full Master’s Programme abroad yourself. As a freemover you have to deregister (terminate your enrolment) at the UvA, and enrol at the foreign university.
  2. All other practical matters have to be arranged by yourself. As freemover you are solely enrolled at the university abroad and follow a complete programme to obtain a degree.
  3. Although you need to arrange a Full Master Abroad yourself, counsellors at the University of Amsterdam are glad to advise you during this process.
  4. Read the Guidelines (pdf) Master’s Programme Abroad to know what you are expected to do for orientation, selection and organisation.
