Master's student for a day

Who is it for?

  • Student for a day is intended for students in their third year of their Bachelor's programme, who have already attended one or more information sessions in a UvA Master’s Open Days and online events.
  • It is also helpful to familiarise yourself with the degree programme beforehand, so be sure to download the brochure, study the web text, and attend a programme information session.

What does Student for a day entail?

  • Becomming a Student for a day means that you will shadow a current student and together you will attend an actual lecture or tutorial.
  • Experiencing the Master’s programme alongside other students will give you real-life insight into university life and whether the programme suits you!
  • The current student that you will be shadowing can also answer any questions that you may have about the degree programme, studying at the UvA and student life in general.

When can I join?

  • Not all Master's programmes participate in the Student for a day-opportunity, so make sure your Master's programme is on the Registration form. 
  • Student for a day takes place between 1 December 2023 and 1 March 2024, but there are no fixed dates. After registration, the programme will contact you within three weeks to set up a date.
  • Would you like more information about the programme but is Student for a day not the right activity for you? Check our Open Day calendar and sign in for the next information activity.
