For new students: VSPAssistance
We have launched a new project called VSPAssistance. It is a place where you can find all the help and opportunities you are looking for! The VSPA assisting new students, hence the name ‘VSPAssistance‘. What it entails:
- Frequently Asked Questions: Answer questions and set out information for first year students. It provides information about Psychology at the UvA, living and being a student in Amsterdam, the VSPA and studying here in general. We’ve also added some topics that cover more practical matters, which will get you started here right away!
- Soft Landing: addresses the core topics which (almost) all international students coming to the Netherlands have to deal with (think of setting up a Dutch bank account, finding a room, getting your first bike, health/travel insurances etc.) The difference with the FAQ is primarily that Soft Landing is aimed at helping you out directly, on a more practical level. We’ve done as much work as we can for you and are sure you’ll find at least some of this very helpful!
So, if you are new student coming to Amsterdam, make sure to have a look here.
