Submit a request

A form must be completed in order to submit a request to the Examinations Board.

Requests may only be submitted to the Examinations Board via the digital form on this website. Petitions via SIS will not be accepted.

The forms are intended for:

  • Advance approval
  • Registration of credits
  • Exemptions (including academic literacy test)
  • Other requests

Request for advance approval

If you want to take a modified curriculum, you must receive advance approval from the Examinations Board.

Advance approval is required:

  • for (elective) courses, minors and internships that are offered outside the University of Amsterdam (UvA);
  • if you deviate from the fixed curriculum of a Faculty of Humanities minor;
  • if you want to complete part of your degree at a foreign university.

Request for registration of credits

In all cases in which advance approval is necessary (see above), a request for registration of credits must be submitted. 
Note: if the course being taken is different than the course for which approval has been obtained, a new course description must be included.

Request for exemption

If you have (partially) completed another programme prior to your programme, you may in certain cases be eligible for exemption(s).  

Academic literacy test

A request for exemption of the academic literacy test at the start of the first year of the Bachelor's can also be filed using the form below. Please indicate 'exemption' and indicate you want to request an exemption for the academic literacy test in the follow-up field.

Note: obtaining an exemption is never automatic.
