University Day is the event for alumni, friends of and donors to the University of Amsterdam. In 2017 the University day was held on Saturday, 17 June. In 2018 the University Day will be on Saturday, 9 Juni.
City centre programme
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 give thought-provoking lectures on their fields of specialisation. Distinguished alumni also contribute.
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 parent and child 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.
