Here you will find practical information about studying from home, additional policies and other relevant matters.
Studying, especially online, requires an active attitude. Prepare carefully, turn on your webcam and actively participate in discussions. Interaction with the lecturer and classmates during workgroups and lectures makes studying more fun and increases your study success.
It is sometimes extra difficult to determine where you, as a student, can go with a particular question. With our decision tree, we try to help you get started as best we can. We have also compiled a number of tips to email professors and other university staff.
The UvA has made some adjustments and rules to make it safe for everyone to study on campus. We would also ask you to take responsibility for your own use of the campus. Please read the instructions on the webpage Campus guidelines.
A student ID card is mandatory if you visit the campus. Without the card, you can not enter the campus buildings.
Please also read the campus guidelines.
The Study Advisers are there for you if you have any questions. For example, do you have questions about your study planning, your study progress or are there any personal circumstances (whether or not related to the coronacrisis) you would like to discuss? If so, you can contact a Study Adviser.
Check the Law Library webpage for more information on returning, borrowing and consulting materials. You can also find the openings hours and the availability of study spaces here.
Make sure you have a suitable workplace with a stable internet connection. During an examination you may only use the study material as indicated by the lecturer and may not receive any help from others. The submitted examination will be checked and possibly further investigated for fraud. Check the rules for online examinations.
Why are the control measures for online examinations necessary? Read the explanation from the Examinations Board.
Is the situation at your home unsuitable for participating in an online exam? Please contact the study advisers as soon as possible (at the latest one week before your exam). They will discuss options regarding taking the online exam on campus. Objections against online proctoring are not viewed as personal circumstances for these requests.
