University Day is the event for alumni, friends of and donors to the University of Amsterdam. In 2018 the University Day was held on Saturday 9 June. In 2019 the day will take place on Saturday 15 June.
University Day is an annual event at which alumni and staff are treated to lectures and debates on scientific and social issues by leading academics and distinguished alumni.
Each year an English-language programme is specially put together for English-speaking visitors.
University Day isn’t just for alumni and staff: we also have a programme for children aged 4-12. Introduce your children (and grandchildren) to science and the UvA and participate with them in numerous different workshops. This programme is in Dutch.
