Curious about all the extracurricular activities you can participate in while studying at the Faculty of Humanities? Below you will find a wide range of extracurricular activities available to UvA students, ranging from joining a study association to learning a new language.
If you would like to represent students in discussions on educational matters, educational facilities and students' interests, consider joining the Central Student Council (CSR), your Faculty Student Council (FSR FGw) or the ASVA.
