I have difficulties with registering for Intreeweek 2018, what to do?

  • 1. Did you sign up for a study with decentralized selection?

Yes, go to question 3.

  • 2. Did you attend the matching of your study?

If you have not done this, this is the problem. These days are obligated and part of your registration at the UvA. As a result, your registration has not been completed. Call Student Services (+31205258080) and ask for the status of your registration.

  • 3. Have you been offered a place within your study?

Yes, go to question 4. If not, this is the problem. You have not been accepted yet to the UvA and that’s why you cannot register for Intreeweek 2018 yet.

  • 4. Have you accepted the place that has been offered you?

If not, this is the problem. Confirmation of your place is a prerequisite as well. You can register for Intreeweek 2018 as soon as you have done this.

  • 5. Have you sent a copy of your passport to the UvA?

If not, this is the problem. It is a prerequisite you have sent a copy of this to the University of Amsterdam. (www.uva.nl/en/uploadid)

  • 6. Have you already authorized the university to charge your tuition fees?

If not, this is the reason you are not able to register. Please make sure to this first.

  • 7. Are you going to start the study Dentistry (ACTA) or are you going to study at the Amsterdam University College?

If yes, this is the reason why you cannot register. These students cannot register for Intreeweek 2018 due to other introductions.

  • 8. Have you been registered at the UvA in the past?

If yes, this is the problem. Please contact us (intree@uva.nl and mention  your student number). I you will start a new study next to your current study, you are, unfortunately, not eligible for Intreeweek 2018.

  • 9. Is the exact problem still not clear?

Send an email with your name and student number to intree@uva.nl with the subject ‘unknown error registration Intreeweek’. When the problem has been solved, we will send you a new email.

What about the ‘early bird’ and ‘late bird’ tickets?

Intreeweek

When will I know my group number, group members and my mentor?

You will receive an email with your group number the weekend before Intreeweek at the latest. In this email you will also find the time that you will meet your group members and your member, this will be during the Registration.

I don’t live in Amsterdam, where can I sleep?

If you don’t live in Amsterdam, you are always welcome to sign up for a place to sleep at the USC (University Sports Centre). This is the sports complex of the UvA and participants of Intreeweek are able to sleep here during the week. Breakfast and use of showers are included. Participants should bring their own air mattress and sleeping bag. For more information click here.

Is it an obligation to have a bicycle?

It is not obligated to have a bicycle, however it is very convenient to have one. Public transport is almost never faster than riding your bike. Besides, you will not be dependent on the departing times of the public transport. You can get a decent bike from ASVA for only €61 (membership of the ASVA costs €15). You will have to reserve a bike at least a week prior to Intreeweek. You can pick up your bike during registration.

I have a faculty/study programme orientation during the Intreeweek. What do I have to do?

During the Intreeweek some study programs will host an introduction. This introduction is mandatory for all the first year students, including participants of the Intreeweek. Unfortunately, you can’t participate in the program of the Intreeweek during your orientation. After your orientation you can join our programme again!

You will get all the information about your orientation from your study program.

Will there be vegetarian meals during the Intreeweek?

Yes, there will be vegetarian lunch and dinner (including BBQ) options.
