The eyes of the world are on the war in Ukraine. The shocking images that constantly come to us through the news channels defy all description and touch everyone deeply. As a university, we are very concerned about the dramatic situation and developments in Ukraine and the consequences this has for the inhabitants, the universities and the academic community in Ukraine.
We are closely monitoring the situation in Ukraine and are looking for possibilities of further help and support for both our Ukrainian and our Russian students and staff. Students from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia who have been directly affected by the situation in Ukraine and meet acute financial difficulties can apply for an emergency fund set up by the VUAssociation. For information and how to apply, please email: email@example.com.
The application deadline for Ukrainian students has been extended until 1 July 2022 (with the exception of Numerus Fixus programmes). This means you are asked to submit the application of your chosen study programme in Studielink and submit your completed application file in your personal VU dashboard by this date. Please note that you do not have to pay the application fee of euro 100 whilst applying. VU Amsterdam cannot assess your eligibility if your application is incomplete.
