In order to apply to a (pre-)Master’s programme at the Graduate School of Humanities, you must submit a complete application dossier via our online application system MyInfo, prior to the application deadline.

After submitting your enrolment request in Studielink, you will receive your UvAnetID by email within 48 hours. You will need your UvAnetID to log in to the application portal called MyInfo. Please make sure you prepare your application well before filling in the application form. We ask you to submit the application form within two weeks after your registration in Studielink, however, this is not mandatory.

Collect your application documents

Collect all the documents you need for your application if you have not done so already. You are asked to upload the following documents:

  • curriculum vitae;
  • proof of language proficiency (if required, see language requirements);
  • transcript of records, up-to-date and issued by your home institution;
  • diploma (if already obtained) or list of courses yet to complete;
  • translation of your diploma and transcript of records (if they are not in English, Dutch, German or French);
  • motivation form (if required);
  • programme-specific document (if required, see below).

Application fee

All students applying for a Master’s programme with a non-Dutch degree must pay a non-refundable application fee of €100. The UvA cannot start processing your application until this fee has been paid. You can pay the application fee via SIS by credit card (Master or Visacard) or iDEAL.

You do not have to pay the application fee:

  • If you have obtained or will obtain a Bachelor’s degree from a Dutch research university or university of applied sciences (HBO);
  • If you have already applied and paid the application fee for another Master’s programme at the UvA for the academic year 2024-2025;
  • If you have already applied and paid the application fee for a Master's programme at the Graduate School of Humanities for the academic year 2023-2024;
  • If you are applying through the Foundation for Refugee Students (UAF).

Submit your MyInfo application form

Login to MyInfo with your UvAnetID in order to open the application form. Fill in the required fields (marked with an asterisk) and upload all necessary documents. You can save your concept application form and finish it later, as long as you send it before the deadline that applies to the programme you are applying for. By submitting the MyInfo application form, you declare that you have truthfully uploaded all required documents. Only documents that are uploaded to your MyInfo when submitting your application form are taken into consideration. Documents sent directly to the Admissions Office or Admissions Board by e-mail are not taken into consideration.

Is the submit button not working? Check carefully if you missed any mandatory fields.

Wait for admission decision

Once we have received your complete application, it will be evaluated by our Admissions Board. All our non-selective Master's and some selective programmes offer rolling admissions, meaning you can expect an admission decision within 10 to 12 weeks after completing your application. Some selective programmes only start processing applications after the deadline. This has to do with the limited number of places available in the programme. In this case, you will receive a decision 10 to 12 weeks after the deadline. Check the Application & Admission page for the programme of your choice for detailed information.

If you are admitted to the programme, you will receive a letter of conditional acceptance. In order to proceed with your enrolment, you must accept this offer at your earliest convenience. Read more about the steps you need to take to make your offer unconditional and to become fully registered as an UvA student:
