    The great student environment and teaching staff of UvA

    The University of Amsterdam is known for its great teachers/lecturers across its many different faculties. Especially for the faculty that I am a part of, the faculty of social and behavioural sciences is known for being one of the absolute best in the world, and with good reason. Professional lecturers who have written some of the most referenced research papers within their field. It is not only the lecturers that make the university great. It has a great student environment with study and student associations that frequently host fun and interesting events. The location of the campus is also great, located in the city centre of Amsterdam.

  • Biological Sciences
    Flexible but not personal

    The programme that I am following (Master Biological Sciences) is flexible, which is preferable, however, there is little attention for the individual student, which can lead to a student easily getting off the radar for months or longer.

  • Personal Education

    The University of Amsterdam has great professors to teach German and German literature. Since not many Dutch will study German there is only a small group of students each year. Which make the contact between professors and students easy, uncomplicated and personal. It means you will have to participate, because you are not anonymous but even better: it means you will actually learn! The themes of the literature subjects change each year which makes it attractive to take extra courses. The virtual environment ist uncomplicated and up to date. The system works well and is well organised. I especially appreciated that you have one platform to go to and from which you have access to all your data.

  • Positive overall

    I am currently enrolled as a Master student. I would say that the UvA has quality lecturers and is going in the right direction as to continue to improve its learning infrastructures which were starting to get old. Some of the grading or resit rules are difficult to accept…It is also a shame that most interesting and useful events organized (career days, workshops, etc.) often happened during mandatory class times.

  • Academically brilliant, other than that pretty poor.

    The University of Amsterdam is great academically. We have very high-end professor, good material and a great future. The location itself is pretty poor though. Not enough study spaces, the communication is pretty poor and a lot of confusing things going on at Uni. An example is an exam is officially cancelled due to code red 5 minutes after it has started. This just really changes my opinion on an otherwise great university!

  • University of Amsterdam

    I have studied Law at the UvA for 2,5 years now. The uva is a big university (a lot of different buildings and studies) so it’s possible to feel a bit anonymous, especially with studies such as law. In case you don’t like that, the uva offers many extra programs, such as ‘honours’ (I think they called it triple-A now) or ‘the Amsterdam Law Firm.’ These programs offer extra challenges and a chance for some practical experience.

  • UvA

    The UvA has a nice accommodation, but you have to do a lot yourself. The teachers won’t guide you that well. It is a big university, most of the people who work there see you as a number. The education, however, is pretty good.

  • MBA Business Administration

    I’ve done my bachelor’s at the UvA and am currently doing my Msc there as well. The UvA had some great locations, nice libraries and interesting events. The organization is usually quite good, but sometimes a bit slow/pragmatic.

  • Law
    Master in Law

    Studying at the University of Amsterdam, Master in Laws (Meester in de Rechten) was a great pleasure. Especially the Intellectual Property Law classes provided by Professors Hugenholtz, Mom and Bostyn of the world-class Institute for Information Law (IViR). The standard of the criminal law and international law classes were also very high. The current Dean, Professor Nollkaemper is an authority in international law.
    When I studied there, between 2000 and 2006, the campus was on the Oudemanhuispoort in the heart of the center of Amsterdam. Now, the campus has moved to Roeterseiland in the East part of the center, which is also a great place.
