I have difficulties with registering for Intreeweek 2020, 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 2019 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 2020 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)

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 2020 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 2020.

  • 9. Is the exact problem still not clear?
