UvASociaal

Diversity, sustainability, accessibility and transparency, these values sum up Uvasociaal in one sentence. We were founded in the year 2006 and since then have worked tirelessly to get the voice of the average student heard in the decision making process of the university. Our members have taken large scale initiatives such as the sustainability minor in the Faculty of economics and business, which will be offered starting next year and silent/contemplation rooms across the university. All of our members believe that we have a vital part to play in improving the university and we welcome everyone who feels they can help us in representing the students.

De Vrije Student

In our party, the freedom of the student is essential. For the tuition fee, it should be possible that you can expand your knowledge to the utmost level and have the best education possible. By focusing on digitalization, a lower binding study advice (BSA) and flexibilization of studies, we thrive to realize this vision. Our party ensures an accessible university, where every student can develop him- or herself. We want to create space for your own completion and generate personal attention.

  • Digitalization: online lectures, online readers and following your courses on the internet.
  • Reasonable food prices: the current canteen prices do not match the average student's financial situation. The price for a basic sandwich quickly reaches four or five euros. 
  • Flexibilization: paying per course for students who don’t follow a full-time study. Personal development next to your study is important. Flexible studying is the solution for this.
  • Pro-diversity, against quota: we want a diverse university in multiple ways - also in terms of politics - but we are opposed to positive discrimination. The current diversity policy is nothing more than symptom control. This money can be spent in better ways e.g. improving the quality of education.
  • Less growth, more quality: According to the 'Keuzegids Universiteiten 2019' the master-studies at the UvA score below average in comparison to other masters offered in the Netherlands. Amongst others, we believe that the growing number of students lead to lower quality of our education.
  • Flexible BSA: the binding study advice (BSA) should be lower. There should be more space for your own choice of courses and extracurricular activities. A high BSA inhibits the personal development of students.
