Other course options
In this section you find information about courses on MA-level and courses by other UvA faculties and institutes. If you want to be enrolled in MA-courses an official language certificate is obligatory.
Please note that, unfortunately, application for a course does not guarantee placement; courses may be cancelled or there may be more qualified applicants than available places. Therefore, students should realize that it might not be possible to take a full workload in their area of study (and at the appropriate level). Flexibility and a willingness to take courses outside of students' field of study are therefore important!
