Categories of CREA courses
The CREA courses are open to everyone. CREA employs different rates and conditions for the following categories:
- Young-alumni UvA/HvA (graduated after 1 September 2016)
- Old-alumni UvA/HvA (graduated before 1 September 2016)
- Employees UvA/HvA
You can find out to which category you belong here.
Full-time students (from all educational institutions) and young-alumni (UvA and HvA) have priority when registering for courses. They are permitted to apply to courses earlier than others.
For others and old-alumni/employees of the UvA and HvA, registration is possible from the following dates: for block 1 from 5 September 2022, for block 2 from 19 December 2022 and for block 3 from 20 March 2023. Please check your category here. This priority regulation does not apply to the summer courses.
- During the course assembly, students are required to demonstrate that they possess a valid university ID card or proof of enrolment to confirm they are a student.
- All graduates from the UvA/HvA are required to show a copy of their degree certificate (this may also be a clear scan or picture on a cellphone). The date on the certificate will determine whether they fall within the division of young-alumni or the division of old-alumni.
- Employees at the UvA/HvA are required to show a valid document which links them professionally to one of these establishments.
- In case of written cancellation up to 2 weeks before the start of the course, the student will receive the full participant fee back
