What to do and to expect?
The International Office of the Amsterdam Law School (ALS) confirms the receipt of nominations and applications within two weeks. Accepted exchange students receive regular information letters by email. Students who do not receive confirmation need to contact the ALS International Office.
After the enrolment at the faculty, the ALS International Office forwards the details of all exchange students to the central UvA administration at Student Services. From them exchange students receive the UvA student number and e-mail with the UvA-net ID to finalize enrolment at the UvA and, if applicable, start the visa procedure. Exchange students also receive the digital UvA Start Magazine and Start Newsletters.
It is extremely difficult to find accommodation in Amsterdam. The University of Amsterdam collaborates with several housing corporations which have student flats for international students in various parts of Amsterdam.
Exchange students receive information on the registration for accommodation from the ALS International office. More information can be found in the section ' Practical matters - housing'.
