  • Impacts of coronavirus on applying

    Application deadlines extended
    Due to the impact the coronavirus outbreak had around the world, application deadlines were extended. 

    • Due to the need to arrange residence permits and possible entry visas, the deadline for students applying with non-EU/EEA citizenship was 1 May 2020. 
    • Students applying with an EU/EEA citizenship were welcome to submit their application until 5 June 2020. 
    • As is the policy for all applications received after the regular deadline, they will be processed in the order in which they are received (i.e. those who have submitted a complete application package on time will be processed first). 

    Diplomas with final central examinations
    For those who have already applied and received conditional admission based on a diploma that you will obtain in 2020 and requires certain final central exams (e.g. the IB diploma, A-levels, AP exams), the cancellation of any central examinations will not have an impact on your offer. As long as you obtain your diploma and meet the minimum conditions specified in your admission letter, you will be unconditionally admitted and will be able to start your studies at AUC in September 2020.

  • Information on Brexit

    In 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union. With the UK leaving the EU on 31 January 2020, there still remains uncertainty regarding future relations between the UK and the EU after Brexit. For current and prospective students with questions on how Brexit may affect them, the University of Amsterdam has dedicated a webpage to share Brexit-related information. Due to the fact that this situation is ongoing, the accuracy or completeness of the content published on that page cannot be guaranteed. For more information on matters related to Brexit in the context of studying, please view the link below.
