Exchange and Contract Possibilities
Students from a university with which the University of Amsterdam has an 'Agreement of Cooperation and Exchange' as well as students from exchange programmes such as SOCRATES, TEMPUS or ISEP are exempt from paying the tuition fee. Please have a look here for general information on following an exchange period at the UvA.
Exchange students will not receive a degree from the UvA, but they can receive an official transcript of the courses completed here. The credits obtained during the exchange will be transferred to their home institution and can be counted towards a degree there.
Applicants should start by contacting the study-abroad office or foreign relations office at their home university for information. ISEP applicants should contact their ISEP-coordinator.
The exchange officer at the Faculty of Science of the University of Amsterdam is Ms. Joke Hendriks.
Please be aware that exchange students who mainly want to take courses from the MSc Logic should also apply to the MSc Logic (and not just to the exchange programme) by following the steps in the application section. Because an exchange programme does not lead towards an MSc degree, the application procedure is slightly less rigorous. Points 1 (application form, inlcuding photos and letter of motivation), 2 (references), 4 (transcripts) and 6 (copy of passport) mentioned in the application section will suffice.
Students registered at other Dutch universities can easily take courses from the UvA. As they already pay tuition fee at their own university they will not be charged. You can read all about it here (Dutch only). For courses from the MSc Logic you will need to ask the permission form the programme director by sending us an email.
Students who are not registered at a Dutch university can also take courses at the UvA. They will be charged per course. You can contact the
Education Service Center of the Faculty of Science about applicable fees.
Again, for courses from the MSc Logic you will need to ask for permission from the programme director by sending us an email.
