Important information

  • For you to be able to issue a digital authorisation, your bank must be located in the SEPA payment areaExternal link. If this is not the case, the UvA will not be able to collect the money from your account by means of a direct debit authorisation.
  • It is not possible to issue a digital authorisation until you have received a request for payment. You should therefore keep a close eye on your inbox and your Studielink account.
  • You can pay the tuition fees in full at once or in 10 instalments. If you will start in February or will be attending a pre-Master’s programme, you can pay in either one or five instalments.
  • If you wish to pay in instalments, a one-off administrative fee of €24.00 will be added to the first instalment.
