For students enrolled in a one-year Master's programme, it is sometimes possible to transfer to the Research Master's per February. If you are interested in applying for a transfer to a Research Master’s, please follow the steps below.
We recommend you to notify the Research Master's Programme coordinator and the study adviser that you wish to apply for a transfer application. However, this is not obligatory.
Let us know that you wish to apply for a transfer to the Research Master’s via uva.nl/questionform.
Submit an enrolment request in Studielink for the Research Master's. Choose the programme option that is followed by '- Research Master's, after a temporary termination of enrolment' or by 'research master - na studieonderbreking'. You can then choose for the option Start date: February 2022. This step must be completed by 3 January 2022 at the latest.
