I am trying to apply for Master’s track in Psychology through Studielink. I cannot seem to select the track of my choice. What should I do?

When registering in Studielink, you should select the Master’s programme ‘Psychology’ at the University of Amsterdam. Students who want to apply for a clinical track (offered in Dutch only) should choose the option ‘Gezondheidszorgpsychologie’.
After having completed your application in Studielink, it will take 1 or 2 days before the Central Student Administration sends you an email with a link to the application form, where you can select the track of your choice. You will also be instructed to upload documents there.

I did not get an email with a link to the application form. What should I do?

1) Make sure you have completed your registration in Studielink.
2) The Central Student Administration will send you an email with a link to the application form within 1 or 2 days after your registration in Studielink. Please keep an eye on your inbox and do not forget to check your spam filter.
3) Make sure you check the inbox that corresponds with the email address you have mentioned in Studielink.

Note that the Student Desk Psychology cannot speed up the process of sending you the link to the application form. Please make sure you register on time. We recommend you start your application at least a couple of days before the deadline, in order to avoid complications or delay.

I am filling out the online application form. For some reason the summary of my uploads does not equal my actual uploads, and the GPA I have mentioned is not visible in the summary. What should I do?

There is a small problem with summary display, which we are working on. Once you submit your application, we do however see all the information you have filled out.

I have registered in Studielink and submitted the online application form. I did not get any confirmation. Have you received my application?

Due to the high number of applications for the Master’s tracks of the Graduate School of Psychology, it may take some time before you receive a confirmation. A confirmation email is usually sent within a week.

Should I send in my hardcopies before the application deadline?

If you have obtained your degree (or expect to obtain your degree) outside of the Netherlands: yes, please make sure we receive your hardcopies before the application deadline. A couple of days of delay is acceptable, but if we receive your documents more than a week after the application deadline, you may miss the first round of selection. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of seats in the program, there may be only round of selection.

Can I apply for more than one Master’s track?

Yes, you can. You can use the link to the application form multiple times. You may have to delete your browsing history, including ‘web form information’, in order to be able to fill out the form a second time.

I am already enrolled in a Master’s programme at the University of Amsterdam in the current academic year. I want to apply for a second Master’s track in Psychology, starting in September 2017. I cannot seem to apply in Studielink, what should I do?

Please get in touch with the Student Desk Psychology at obalie-fmg@uva.nl (unless you have already emailed us, then we will get back to you). We will send you the information you need in order to submit your application for a second Master’s track.

My fellow students have already heard back about their application. I have not. Was my application rejected?

You will hear from us within 15 working days after the application deadline has expired. Some other students may have already received a reply, still we kindly ask for your patience.
