UvA Virtual Study Abroad Fair (3 - 9 October 2020)

Would you like to spend a part of your studies abroad? Join the UvA Virtual Study Abroad Fair and find the foreign destination that matches you and your academic goals the best.

Each year, the UvA organises a large-scale information event about studying abroad. All Dutch and international Bachelor’s, pre-Master’s and Master’s students of the UvA are welcome to join.

Discover all aspects

You can join virtual information sessions about all kinds of ways to spend a part of your study abroad. You can go on exchange for a semester or a year, do an internship abroad, visit a student conference, participate in an international team to solve global challenges or apply for a summer school.

You can also meet with ISN and AIESEC; two student run organisations that can help you with your orientation.

Online Event

The Study Abroad Fair will be held online on Saturday 3 October 2020, with additional activities from Monday 5 to Friday 9 October 2020.
