Below you can find some of the most important facilities provided by the University of Amsterdam.
Studying with a Disability
The Master of Logic welcomes students with a disability, who are encouraged to contact Tanja Kassenaar directly to discuss their disability-related needs.
This site provides information about the facilities offered by the University of Amsterdam to ensure an accessible, welcoming learning environment for individuals with disabilities.
Most Master of Logic students come to Amsterdam from abroad and will want spend the full two years on the programme in Amsterdam, but for some students the option of studying abroad for a semester is attractive. The best way for students to see where they can go on exchange is through the UvA Digital World Map accessible from the UvA's Study Abroad site. Here you can find the list of universities that offer exchange programmes to students of the University of Amsterdam. Universities that offer Logic as a possible study area include Universitaet Osnabrueck, Eberhard Karls Universitaet Tuebingen, Universite de Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne and University of Warsaw. Master of Logic students however can apply also for exchange programmes in other areas, as their background is usually quite diverse.
MoL students interested in studying abroad should discuss this option with their academic mentor.
The International Team at the UvA's Faculty of Science takes care of a number of services for foreign students, such as visas, housing, and insurance.
The UvA Library consists of a well-equipped central library and numerous specialised libraries distributed across town. It also offers access to a a comprehensive online catalogue (make sure you connect via the UvA network to be able to freely access all journals the UvA is subscribing to).
MoL students, and other ILLC members, are also welcome to make use of the library of the CWI (Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica = national research institute for mathematics and computer science). To show that you are indeed a student of the UvA/MoL you should get proof of registration. You can get this at the desk of the library in Science Park 904, first floor.
As a Master's student you can log into the student workstations across UvA campuses. In particular, you can use the machines (dual-boot Linux and Windows) provided in the MoL Room and the main building of the Faculty of Science (Science Park 904).
All students can take part in numerous sporting activities, at special student rates, organised by the University Sports Centre (USC), including in particular its branch located at the Science Park (five minutes walk from the ILLC).

Dutch Language Courses
The MSc Logic is an English-taught programme and it is easy to get by in Amsterdam if you speak English. Still, it can be rewarding to also learn Dutch. The UvA's Institute for Dutch Language Education (INTT) is one of several places offering Dutch language courses at different levels.
