Email is an official means of communication at the UvA. Regularly check your UvA mailbox or the email address you provided in Studielink for communication purposes; otherwise you might miss out on important information about your degree programme. Do you use Hotmail, Live Mail or MSN Mail? Then emails sent by the UvA might end up in the 'junk email' folder. Check this folder regularly and mark the UvA as trusted sender.
