University Day offers a varied programme focused on the exchange of knowledge and experiences in a wide range of scientific, cultural and social fields. Various UvA professors will be giving thought-provoking lectures on their fields of specialisation. Distinguished alumni will also be contributing. One of the highlights of the day is the presentation of the UvA Thesis Prize for the best graduate thesis.
University Day consists of a morning, afternoon and evening programme of events. In the morning, a trailblazing UvA academic is invited to speak in the Auditorium of the UvA. The morning programme also offers the alternative choice of a cultural programme, with city walking tours and guided museum tours.
The afternoon programme features a knowledge festival of lectures and debates. There are of course plenty of opportunities for catching up with people and networking: there’s a lunch on a canal cruise boat, spare time between the two rounds of the knowledge festival, and a drinks party. In the evening, you can join us for dinner at the Amsterdam Academic Club
The main programme is in Dutch, there is an English-language programme for international visitors.
