I cannot find a specific course in Canvas.
The course registration period is when you register for courses. Visit uva.nl/vakaanmelden to check whether you are registered for a particular course. Canvas will automatically grant access to the courses for which you have registered. The lecturer must publish the course before it is scheduled to begin, at which point it will become visible to the registered students. If you have not been granted access by the time the course starts, contact your programme's Student Desk.
