Take Off @ UvA

for (prospective) students with a refugee background

The process of applying to the University of Amsterdam and the first period of a new study program can be a challenge. Therefore the University of Amsterdam wants to support students with a refugee background in the application process and at the start of the study programme, as to ensure that this group has an equal chance at a successful start of your study programme.

Do you have questions about studying at the uvA, the application process or about extra support during your studies? Please contact the Central Student Service Desk.
