University of Amsterdam (UvA)

About University of Amsterdam (UvA)

With over 5,000 staff, 30,000 students and a budget of more than 600 million euros, the University of Amsterdam (UvA) is a major intellectual hub in the Netherlands. Teaching and research take place in the University’s seven faculties: Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Economics and Business, Law, Science, Medicine and Dentistry. The UvA has four city campuses in or near the centre of Amsterdam where different disciplines come together and interact, and the faculties have close links with thousands of researchers and hundreds of institutions at home and abroad.

The UvA’s students and employees are independent thinkers, competent rebels who dare to question dogmas and are not satisfied with easy answers and standard solutions. Working at the UvA means working in an independent, creative, innovative and international climate characterised by an open atmosphere and a genuine engagement with the city of Amsterdam and its society.
