UvA Study Abroad Fair

took place on Saturday, 5 October 2019

Would you like to study abroad? Find the foreign destination that suits you and your academic goals the best, and meet other students that have been on exchange.

Each year, the UvA organises a large-scale information event about studying abroad. Discover all aspects of studying abroad. The Study Abroad Fair is open to all UvA students, Bachelor’s, pre-Master’s and Master’s students in any year of study are welcome to join. It is not necessary to sign up for this event.
