The coronavirus outbreak has a huge impact on education, and on students as well. On this page we offer relevant information for students starting or continuing their studyprogramme at the College Social Sciences or the Graduate School Social Sciences.
All students who have been admitted to the programme and have completed the admissions and registration process on time can start their studies on August 31st. in the beginning of July, every student will receive more information from their own programme about how teaching and learning will be organized in the first block, so please keep a close eye on your e-mail.
At the moment, it is likely that at least the major lectures will be offered online, and that we will gradually work towards more and more physical teaching on campus, provided that this can be done safely and responsibly, in line with the government rules and regulations. If possible, we will start with small-scale on-site teaching at the beginning of the academic year. You can count on us to continue offering online teaching to students who are unable to come to Amsterdam due to travel restrictions until 1 January 2021, even if on-site teaching is gradually starting up. How teaching and learning will be organized from 1 January onward will be announced well in advance, and if possible before 1 October.
International students who are preparing starting their programme in Amsterdam might have specific questions. Most of them are answered by checking the University of Amsterdam websites. If you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to contact the International Office Social Sciences at firstname.lastname@example.org. The International Office can then also invite you for one of the virtual open office hours.
