Word of welcome Choosing the University of Amsterdam means opting for the intellectual depth of an academic study in an environment that offers unique opportunities and experiences. At the UvA, students from all over the world learn together on an equal footing. Discussion takes on a whole new dimension in this environment, thanks to the diversity of the participants’ cultural, national and academic backgrounds. As one of the largest educational institutions in the Netherlands, we want you to feel at home and to enjoy your studies at the UvA. We provide everything you need to learn successfully in an inspiring, challenging and international setting. All we ask in return are your commitment and effort, involvement and initiative.

University of Amsterdam The University of Amsterdam is a metropolitan university with an excellent reputation for research which gives students the chance to study in an international environment and enjoy the academic, social and cultural opportunities the city of Amsterdam has to offer. The University of Amsterdam (UvA) is a modern university with a rich history, its roots trace back to 1632, when the Amsterdam city council founded the Athenaeum Illustre to train students in Trade and Philosophy. Until the nineteenth century, this remained a small institution with no more than 250 students and eight professors. In 1877, it was renamed the University of Amsterdam and granted the right to confer the highest academic degrees. The UvA is now one of the largest universities in Europe, with seven faculties and more than 28,000 students and 5,000 staff members. It currently offers the highest number of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes in the Netherlands, with Master’s programmes covering nearly every academic discipline. Partly because many of the Master’s programmes are taught in English, the UvA is able to attract many international students. It therefore has a student body in which countless nationalities are

represented. In addition, the wide range of academic programmes and courses available to choose from means students can tailor their studies to suit their personal ambitions and talents. The UvA ensures they are supported during and after their studies via academic and career counselling.

A research university The UvA prides itself on being an excellent research university. Many of its Master’s programmes directly reflect leading research in a given field of study, thus exposing students to groundbreaking research during their studies. Research Master’s programmes are offered in nearly every discipline. The Research Master’s programmes are designed specifically to prepare students for PhD level research or a research based career. The research activities’ significance at the UvA extends beyond the confines of the academic community and their findings benefit society at large. In fact, the problems and issues affecting society often provide the stimulus for the scientific studies. The proximity of cultural and scientific institutes, such as the Maison Descartes, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW), the Goethe

Institute, SARA Computing and Network Services and the International Information Centre and Archives for the Women’s Movement (IIAV), enriches research and independent study. The UvA is in the League of European Research Universities (LERU). An association of leading research universities founded to strengthen the position of European universities in the arena of international scientific research.

A metropolitan university The UvA is inextricably linked with the city of Amsterdam. Its facilities, offices and faculties are spread throughout the city. The majority of the UvA’s arts and social science programmes are housed in the city centre, along with a large number of facilities, including the University Library, the Special Collections Library and the Zoological Museum Amsterdam. Many of the faculties are housed in characteristic old buildings in the heart of the city. Most of the science programmes are based just outside the old city centre, in the newly developed Science Park Amsterdam in the Watergraafsmeer district. Science Park Amsterdam brings

together a dynamic mix of educational institutes, research institutes and knowledge based enterprises in an inspiring collaborative environment. In fact, with the faculties spread across the city in this way, the UvA’s campus is Amsterdam itself. Rankings

In the 2008 THE-QS World University Rankings, the UvA was ranked the highest in the Netherlands and 15th in Europe. Several disciplines taught at the UvA have also done well in more specific quality rankings. High scores were achieved, for example, in the Centre for Higher Education’s (CHE) 2007/8 Ranking of Excellent European Graduate Programmes, a league table for programmes in the areas of biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics.

The city Amsterdam, famous for its historical buildings and canals, is a multifaceted city bustling with knowledge, commerce, creativity and innovation. The tolerant atmosphere and the openmindedness of its inhabitants form an inviting setting for scientists, entrepreneurs and artists who often work together, inspiring and

www.uva.nl/isp

stimulating one another. It is this dynamic and challenging environment that attracts many national and international students to the city. The capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam is an exuberant smallscale metropolis where you quickly feel safe and welcome. The city of Rembrandt van Rijn, H.P. Berlage, Anne Frank and Johan Cruyff, it has a unique cultural and intellectual life. Countless museums, festivals and artistic groups stage exhibitions and performances all year round. In 2008, Amsterdam was deemed one of the top 15 cities worldwide in terms of quality of life. And with Schiphol, one of Europe’s major airports, a mere 20 minutes away, the world is just around the corner. Named after the Amstel River, Amsterdam expanded rapidly from the thirteenth century onwards due to a thriving maritime industry, to become the largest city of the Netherlands by 1500. During the seventeenth century, the ‘Golden Age’, it grew into one of the wealthiest and most powerful cities in the world. It was then that its famous crescent-shaped canals were built. With its tradition of intellectual tolerance, Amsterdam attracted scholars and writers unable to find the same level of freedom in their own countries. Baruch Spinoza


May Massoud from Syria studying for a Master degree in Conflict Resolution and Governance ‘My first visit to the Netherlands in 2007 gave me the feeling that I will be back to this country soon. So, after I completed my BA degree in International Relations at University of Kalamoon, Syria, and after few years of working in different professional fields, I chose the University of Amsterdam to continue my studies and obtain a Master’s degree in “Conflict Resolutions and Governance”. The supportive academic ambiance at UvA helped me to enhance my skills and continue working on my knowledge development. It was a wonderful year for me in Holland where I enjoyed the diversity of cultures and thoughts.’

Studying in an international environment

and René Descartes flourished here, alongside Dutch painters, poets and scientists such as Johannes Vermeer, Constantijn Huygens and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek. Intellectual and cultural curiosity have prevailed in the Netherlands ever since.

To create an international environment where learning and creativity can flourish, the UvA has always encouraged international cooperation. It attracts students from all over the world, and presently has more than 1800 international students and researchers from over 80 countries.It also has one of the largest numbers of international study programmes of any university in Europe. Most classes at the Master’s level feature students with different nationalities and cultural backgrounds. In an era of globalisation and an increasingly international labour market, this environment helps students prepare for their future careers. It also allows faculties to seek international standards of excellence. The curriculum is constantly reviewed and revised, and comprises more than 100 study programmes, taught in English. The UvA constantly strives to improve the quality and efficiency of existing programmes a well as developing new courses of study.

This same rich and diverse culture can be found in Amsterdam today, amid a climate of forward-thinking professionalism. Education has always played a vital role in the development of Dutch culture. The UvA, as one of the largest centres of study and research in the Netherlands, continues to be one of its key players.

Career prospects The research-oriented and metropolitan UvA could have no better home than a centre of cultural,

scientific and international business activity such as Amsterdam. Students have ready access to a network of businesses, institutions and agencies related to their academic programme. The UvA has an excellent relationship with numerous regional, national and international businesses and organisations. In an expanding global labour market, international students in Amsterdam can find many major multi-national organisations. The UvA Student Career Centre provides international graduates with information, training, advice on career planning, identifying opportunities for employment and how to market themselves effectively. www.student.uva.nl/work

Students are also selected on the basis of motivation, research skills and previous academic results. A Research Master’s programme usually takes two years. Students with a previous Master’s degree may be allowed to complete the programme in a shorter period.

www.uva.nl/education

Graduate Programmes Master’s programmes

The UvA has more than 180 Master’s programmes, several of which are unique in the Netherlands and others renowned around the world. The Master’s programmes cover a diverse range of subject areas, ranging from Public International Law to Forensic Science, from Mathematical Physics to Gender, Sexuality and Society, from Urban Studies to Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image, and from Cultural Analysis to Business Economics. More than 100 of these are taught entirely in English. From regular to advanced

Professional Master’s programmes

Professional Master’s programmes are extended Master’s programmes, lasting between one-and-a-half to two years, designed to combine indepth theoretical knowledge with practice-based learning.

Exchange programmes

All the programmes described in this brochure are open to fee-paying students enrolled at the University of Amsterdam. Students already registered in a degree programme at a foreign university can also take courses at the UvA i.e. an ‘academic exchange’. Exchange students attend the UvA for a limited period of time (one academic year or one semester), while remaining registered at their home university. They attend the UvA as part of an exchange programme, such as ERASMUS, TEMPUS or ISEP, or as a result of a bilateral agreement between their home university and the UvA. Exchange students do not receive an academic degree or diploma from the UvA, but they are issued an official transcript. Credits received at the UvA should be transferable to their home university. Study information The academic year

first runs from early September to early February, the second from early February to mid-July. The duration of individual programmes can be found in the specific programme descriptions. www.uva.nl/isp

Credit system

Semesters are composed of courses each worth 5 to 10 ECTS credits, in accordance with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). This makes it possible to transfer credits more easily between European academic institutions. A full-time study for one academic year represents 60 credits, corresponding to 1,680 hours of study.

Students from other countries may notice a considerable difference between the style of education in their own country and here in the Netherlands. The approach at the UvA entrusts students with a high degree of individual responsibility, encouraging them to develop an independent and critical way of thinking. This type of academic environment will be part of the challenge students face when they follow a programme at the UvA. Study programmes comprise a number of courses and generally conclude with a thesis. Depending on the course, classes meet once or twice a week in sessions of two or three hours each.

Grading system

The criteria and grading system used at the UvA are common to Dutch academic institutions although students will find they vary from those applied in other parts of Europe and elsewhere.

The UvA’s academic year is from 1 September to mid-July, divided into two semesters of 21 weeks each. The

Core courses and electives Most certificate and Master’s programmes include a number of compulsory core courses, and electives, which the students can choose. Students enrolled in one of the international study programmes may also take courses in other academic disciplines or programmes


Chris Castiglione from the USA MA in New Media ‘The New Media programme is one of the best- the faculty and its professors have an excellent reputation. Having the opportunity to work under key figures in the field was great. So it was really the MA programme that brought me here, but of course, there were other factors. In comparison to most schools back home, I could complete a Master’s in a year (instead of two) and the student experience is more laid back and relaxed, and I think that makes it a better place to study. The classes at the UvA are interesting because they challenge the students to think critically. Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I really can’t say how enjoyable it is just riding my bike everyday: over the bridges, past the canals and through the main squares. It is a very international city and you meet and learn from people who have come from all over the world.’

at the UvA, if there is room and the student meets the entrance requirements. Plagiarism If you copy material from websites, encyclopaedias, books or other sources without giving full credit to the original authors, you are committing plagiarism. This is regarded as a serious breach of the university’s rules. Plagiarism can result in the loss of credits or even suspension, and can seriously jeopardise your academic future or other career prospects. Papers may be electronically screened for plagiarism. Please familiarise yourself with the UvA’s Regulations Governing Fraud and Plagiarism for UvA Students, and contact your programme coordinator if you have any questions on this matter. Teaching

Students at the UvA will be exposed to diverse teaching methods. Assessment for participation in a course can be based on a written examination, a test, a paper or a combination of all three. Tutorials During tutorials or seminars, students discuss subject matter, undertake assignments and write papers as well as practice their presentation skills.

Practical training Practical training forms part of the curriculum of some programmes. During practical training, the emphasis is on assignments rather than reading academic texts. In Chemistry or Physics, the assignments can take the form of laboratory experiments, while Dentistry or Medicine students may copy or perform medical procedures. Practical training can also involve computer work. Fieldwork In some programmes students conduct fieldwork. Students go into the field in order to examine their object of study in its natural environment or to gather research data. Language courses

English language courses Various courses are available at UvA Talen, the independent language centre of the UvA, for students wishing to improve their English. English skills courses are offered at four different levels, from elementary to advanced. Courses focus on speaking, writing and presentation skills, including writing academic papers in English and preparing essays in English for lectures and tutorials. These courses usually have to be funded by the student themselves.

Dutch language courses The UvA’s Institute for Dutch as a Second Language (INTT) offers Dutch language courses at six different levels, from absolute beginners to advanced. Before the start of the academic year, there are intensive three-week summer courses, involving 48 hours of classes in total. Extensive day and evening courses (36 hours in total) are also organised at all six levels throughout the year. Applicants are advised to apply at least two months before the starting date to be sure of a place. www.intt.uva.nl

Student Language Exchange Amsterdam Are you interested in learning Dutch and meeting Dutch students? If so, check out the Student Language Exchange website at www.sle-amsterdam.nl

The goal of this online forum, a joint initiative of the International Student Network and the ASVA student union, is to foster language exchange between Dutch and international students at the UvA and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. In this way, in an informal setting international students can learn Dutch from Dutch students who also want to improve their skills in another language.

University of Amsterdam | International Study Programmes


Application and admissions procedures Entry requirements

Faculities’ entry requirements vary per programme. The minimum requirements for most Bachelors programmes include a suitable high school education (equivalent to the Dutch VWO diploma) including relevant topics. Applicants from some countries require an additional one or two years of university or college education. For all Master’s programmes, a Bachelor’s degree in a related subject is a general entry requirement; potential students will also need a letter of motivation, letters of recommendation and a curriculum vitae. Some programmes have additional selection procedures. Check the programme details on the International Study Programmes website for details. www.uva.nl/isp go to ‘Programmes’ and then ‘Application and admission’

English language requirements

Non-native English speakers must have a reasonable level of proficiency in English. Please note that some faculties or institutes require higher test scores than others. Scores from the following tests are accepted: ■ T  OEFL ■ I  ELTS (academic module) ■ C  ambridge International Please note that not every


department or programme accepts all these test scores. For more information about each study programme’s English language requirements, please visit: www.uva.nl/isp go to ‘Programmes’ and then ‘Application and admission’

Native English speakers with a degree from one of the following countries do not need to take an English language proficiency test: Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

Early registration also increases the chances of finding suitable accommodation. As a rough guide for students from outside the EEA deadlines are between 1 February and May 15, for those coming from inside the EEA between 1 April and 15 May, again individual programmes have their own schedules and students are generally advised to apply as soon as possible. www.uva.nl/isp (see specific programme information)

Financial matters

Applications

Current application forms are available online. Completed application forms and all accompanying documentation should be sent directly to the programme managers or institutes as indi­cated on the website. These will be the point of contact for all further information regarding application and admissions. Please note that some study programmes charge an application fee. www.uva.nl/isp go to ‘Programmes’ and then ‘Application and admission’

Deadlines

The deadlines for application vary per programme. Since the application procedure and possible visa procedures can take some time, it is strongly recommended to begin the application procedure well in advance.

15

Please note that some programmes, such as the Certificate, Advanced Master’s and Executive Master’s programmes, are not funded by the Dutch government. As a result, tuition fees for these programmes are generally substantially higher than the regular tuition fee. The same fee is applicable to all students regardless of their nationality. Students from EU/EEA countries, Suriname and Switzerland

Most international study programmes are financed by the Dutch government. Students under the age of 30 from one of the EU/EEA countries or from Suriname and Switzerland pay the regular national tuition fee for these programmes.

Students from non-EU/EEA countries

Government funding for students from non-EU/EEA countries, with the exception of Switzerland, is no longer available. The Tuition fee for these students is therefore now considerably higher. The UvA has established a scholarship programme, known as the Amsterdam Merit Scholarships (AMS), specifically designed to offer talented and hardworking non-EU/ EEA students the opportunity to pursue a degree at the UvA. www.uva.nl/ams www.uva.nl/tuitionfees

Financial aid

In additions to the Amsterdam Merit Scholarships, other forms of financial support are available to exceptional students for studying in the Netherlands. Please note that, in some cases, students may make use of the Dutch government’s system of student grants and loans (studiefinanciering). www.uva.nl/scholarships www.ib-groep.nl/International_visitors/ Welcome.asp www.grantfinder.nl www.studyin.nl

PhD programmes Logic 1 Tuition fees: ■ The regular tuition fee for the academic year 2009-2010 is € 1,620 for EEA-students younger than 30, and € 1,945 for EEA students aged 30 or older. ■ Fees for non-EEA students are higher than those for EEA students because tuition is not subsidised by the Dutch government. The tariffs shown here are for 2010-2011, these will be adjusted in line with inflation. ■ Other fees apply for other programmes (Certificate courses, Advanced and Executive Master’s and PhD programmes). Where no fee is indicated, and for up to date information please see www.uva.nl/isp.

2 These programmes are offered as part-time courses for students already living in the Netherlands (it is not possible for students pursuing a part-time study to get a visa).

EEA = European Union + Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Students from Switzerland and Suriname have the same status as EEA students.

Upon successful completion of these programmes, students will obtain a double diploma. For more information, see www.uva.nl/isp. 4 This is a joint programme with Columbia Law School.

6 This is a joint programme with Maastricht University Business School. Summer Programmes: The UvA also offers a range of summer programmes. For an overview, see www.uva.nl/summerprogrammes. Accreditation: All study programmes have been accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This overview is subject to change as the curriculum is constantly developing. No rights can be derived from the contents of this overview.

University of Amsterdam | International Study Programmes


Practical matters The UvA offers a great deal of practical support for students coming to Amsterdam with help in arranging visas, residence permits, housing etc. The faculties have advisors who will help with the day to day concerns students have.

Entry visa Depending on your nationality, you may need to obtain a long-stay entry visa (MVV) before coming to the Netherlands. Once you have been offered a place, the coordinator for your chosen programme will advise whether you need an MVV and provide more details of the procedure. The UvA will apply for the visa on your behalf. For more information, see www.uva.nl/visa

Residence permit

Make sure you read this information carefully before travelling to the Netherlands and that you bring all the necessary documents with you.

Housing As in many major European cities, the demand for reasonably priced housing in Amsterdam is high. Affordable housing available to UvA students is therefore limited. To assist first year international students in finding appropriate accommodation, the UvA has signed a number of agreements with different housing corporations. These corporations offer furnished accommodation. Rents vary according to the type, size and location of the accommodation. These housing arrangements are managed and administered by the faculties themselves. Students are advised to start looking for accommodation as early as possible. www.studeren.uva.nl/housing

Unless you are an EU/EEA or Swiss citizen, you must apply for a residence permit if you plan to stay in the Netherlands for longer than three months. The UvA will submit the application on your behalf, so there is no need to contact the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) yourself. For details of the documents required and an explanation of the procedure, see www.uva.nl/visa 20

www.uva.nl/isp

Insurance Every resident of the Netherlands is required to have appropriate health insurance, including international students. General liability insurance is also recommended. Before you come to the Netherlands, please make sure your health insurance will cover the entire period of your stay.


Iryna Ivanova from the Ukraine MSc Business Studies ‘While doing my Bachelor’s I started thinking about my future and my career. I realised that I wanted to study abroad because this would certainly open doors. When looking for a programme, I took into consideration the university’s international background. The Business Studies programme at the University of Amsterdam matched my expectations and requirements perfectly. I applied for the HSP Huygens Scholarship to benefit from the opportunity to study at one of the best European universities with a very diverse international background. Life here is so dynamic and the city is so easy to fall in love with that many students consider staying here. I however, am planning to develop my career at home. I am going to go back to be part of the positive change I see there. After my Master’s year, I will be empowered with the knowledge and skills to help me benefit my country.’

If your current healthcare insurance will not cover your stay abroad, you can choose to apply for either private student insurance or ‘basic’ Dutch healthcare insurance (basisverzekering), depending on your situation.

■ p  ublic

Citizens of the European Union can apply for the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). The coverage provided by the EHIC is determined by your insurance company, so be sure to ask them whether they provide adequate coverage for your stay in the Netherlands. Depending on the kind of coverage you require, it may be better to purchase a different kind of insurance for the duration of your stay in Amsterdam. For more information about the EHIC, contact your insurance company.

Whether you require a work permit to work in the Netherlands depends on your nationality. As a student from certain European countries, you do not require a work permit and there are no restrictions on the number of hours you can work:

www.uva.nl/insurance

Living expenses During your stay in Amsterdam, you can expect to spend between €950 and €1,300 per month on living expenses. This includes rent but not tuition fees. As a rough guide costs are; ■ a  ccommodation: €375 - €600 per month ■ o  ther living expenses: €400 - €500 per month ■ i nsurance: €45 per month ■ b  ooks: €800 - €1,000 per year

21

transport €70 - €100 per month (more if you live outside of Amsterdam).

Working while studying

Students from other countries must have a work permit in order to work lawfully in the Netherlands, and the number of hours you are allowed to work is restricted. You must make a choice between: ■ f ull-time (seasonal) work in the months of June, July and August, or ■ p  art-time work throughout the year, but no more than 10 hours a week. You cannot do both. A work permit is called a tewerkstellingsvergunning or TWV in Dutch. It is free of charge. Your employer or employment agency must apply for a work permit on your behalf (at the ‘UWV Werkbedrijf’). You cannot do this yourself. A copy of both the front and back of your residence permit (for the purpose of study) and your proof of enrolment must accompany the application for a work permit.

It takes one to two weeks to process your application. Your work permit will be valid for the period during which you are registered at the UvA. You will therefore need to request a new work permit if you extend your registration at the UvA. Suitable part-time or temporary jobs can be hard to find especially for students who don’t speak Dutch. While there are some seasonal opportunities, it is advised that you don’t rely on finding such employment to cover your expenses. For more information about working in the Netherlands, see www.uva.nl/work

Working after graduation Students who graduate from a Dutch university are allowed to extend their stay in the Netherlands for the period of one year to look for work. To make use of this ‘search period’ you will need to change the nature of your residence permit. The ‘search period’ facility includes the necessary work permit. www.uva.nl/work

University of Amsterdam | International Study Programmes


Student facilities The UvA provides the facilities to help students make the most of their time here. These include the Service and Information Centre (SIC) which aims to answer all your administrative questions, libraries, modern study centres, our own doctors, dentists and counsellors, sports and cultural facilities, cheap restaurants and many others.

Service and Information Centre The Service and Information Centre (SIC) is the general information centre of the UvA. It is the first port-of-call for all students with general questions. It takes care of matters such as enrolment, housing, studying and student ID cards. The SIC also has an information centre about other Dutch universities and studying abroad. If the SIC is unable to answer your questions, you can also visit the International Student Adviser. www.uva.nl/isp (see â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Contactâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;)

Student organisations Most Faculty departments have their own student organisations. These promote and protect student interests, and organise such things as

22


excur­sions, social activities and book discounts. They also play an import­ ant role in department and faculty committees.

International Student Network Amsterdam The International Student Network Amsterdam (ISN-A) takes care of the social and cultural needs of international students studying at the UvA. It organises a variety of activities, including movie nights, weekly drinks, cultural outings and excursions. www.isn-amsterdam.nl

Introductory programme

At the beginning of each semester the ISN-A also organises a fourday introductory programme to help newly arrived students familiarise themselves with Amsterdam and the Netherlands and give them the opportunity to meet other Dutch and international students. Mentoring service

In addition, the ISN-A provides a mentoring service. Mentors assist new international students by, for example, picking them up at the airport, taking them to their resid­ ences and introducing them to Amsterdam and university life.

Health and well-being

University. All exchanges with the Ombudsman are confidential.

The UvA has a medical service with a number of university doctors available specifically for students. International students pay the same fee as Dutch students to use these medical services. Dental care is available for reduced rates to both Dutch and international students at the ACTA (Academic Centre for Dentistry Amsterdam). Treatment is provided by university dental students under the supervision of qualified dentists.

www.uva.nl/isp (see ‘Coming to Amsterdam’)

Amsterdam has long enjoyed the benefits of a multi-cultural tolerant society and the city has an extensive network of institutions and organisations offering pastoral care and support to students of different faiths and denominations Students experiencing problems with their studies are advised to consult the study coordinator of their department. If necessary, they will refer the student to a Student Counsellor. There is a special Student Counsellor for international students. An Ombuds­man is also available to students with complaints about the way they have been treated by a University, faculty or individual staff member. The Ombudsman is impartial and occupies an independent position within the

Students with a disability Students with a disability can turn to the UvA for advice and assistance. Assistance may be in the form of equipment, e.g Braille printers, tape recorders, speech-recognition software, or if needed additional academic assistance. The UvA can also offer help with other practical matters, like taking notes during class, checking assignments or drawing up a study schedule. www.uva.nl/isp

Student identity card After payment of the tuition fee, students receive a student identity card with a registration number. This is valid for the duration of their studies at the UvA. Students need this card for identification purposes, registration, discounts and to access university premises and facilities. The student ID card also serves as a library card.

Computer facilities

Libraries

UvA students receive an UvAnetID upon enrolment. This provides access to a range of online services including student email, Blackboard and Studyweb. Via the digital learning environment in Blackboard, students can review study materials and consult with lecturers and fellow students.

The UvA’s library facilities comprise the University Library and seven other faculty libraries. The UvA has an extensive collection that includes some four million titles, plus a large collection of rare manu­scripts, letters and maps. Students have access to the collection free of charge. The University’s special collections are managed by UvA museums, such as the Allard Pierson Museum and the Museum Vrolik are used for teaching and research purposes. In addition, the UvA’s Digital Library portal offers access to an extensive range of materials, including library catalogues, bibliographic files, e-books and e-journals, text and image databases and electronic copies of dissertations and PhD theses.

Each student also receives a personal email account, a homepage, free Internet dial-up access, and discounts on UvA-dsl cable Internet access and various software. In addition, 100MB of storage space is available for each student to use on the UvA network’s U-drive. The UvA has six study centres offering workstations with printers and fast internet connections. Several UvA buildings additionally feature ‘WI-FI hotspots’, or wireless access points, where it is possible to log in to the UvA network.
