Are you a British citizen? Find out what consequences Brexit has for your application and enrolment at the Graduate School of Humanities.

At the moment, we expect that British nationals who start their studies in the Netherlands in the academic year 2021-2022 will be subject to the regulations for non-EU/EEA countries. This would mean the following:

  • You need a residence permit to study in the Netherlands. The UvA will inform you about the procedure by email.
  • The non-EU/EEA application deadlines apply to you. This means we need to receive your complete application dossier before Monday, 1 March 2021*. Please make sure you register in Studielink before 26 February as it may take up to 48 hours before you receive the UvAnetID that you need in order to submit the application form in MyInfo. The application form needs to be submitted before 1 March.
  • You are no longer entitled to the (lower) statutory tuition fee. This means that you have to pay the institutional tuition fee. For our programmes, the institutional fee for 2021-2022 is set to €16,060 for one-year programmes and €11,440 for research and dual Master's programmes.
  • You need a work permit to work in the Netherlands.

*The only exception is the Master's in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage. For this programme, the deadline is 1 February 2021.

Please note: the impact of the Trade and Cooperation Agreement signed on 24 December 2020 is still being analysed. Check for the latest updates.

Pre-Master's programmes

The Graduate School of Humanities offers pre-Master's programmes to students whose prior education does not grant direct admission to the Master's programme they would like to pursue. Because no visa can be arranged for students following a pre-Master's programme, we can only offer these programmes to students with an EU nationality. This means that our pre-Master's programmes will no longer be accessible to British citizens, unfortunately.

Already living in the Netherlands?

The information on this page does not apply to you if you were registered in the Netherlands' personal records database (BRP) before 1 January 2021. In this case, the EU/EEA deadlines apply. You are entitled to pay the lower statutory fee and you are allowed to enrol in a pre-Master's programme.
