Course registration

UvA Economics and Business

Each semester you are required to register for courses during the official registration period. When you register for a course, you are automatically registered for the exam, resit and the Canvas page for that course. The course registration for semester 1 of the academic year 2020-2021 will take in phases.

Phases course registration semester 1 2020-2021

Lecturers are currently hard at work organising interactive online courses for you. In addition, we'll be investigating on a period-by-period basis which activities can take place at Roeterseiland Campus again (without compulsory attendance). We'll use the next few weeks to finalise the format of your courses. Once this is done, we can also finalise the timetable.

The course registration will therefore take place in phases. If you register during phase 1, you are guaranteed a spot in a tutorial group during phase 2.

Phases for the Bachelor students:

  • Phase 1: From Tuesday 9 June until 23 June you register for the courses you want to take in Semester 1.
  • Phase 2: From Thursday 9 July until 14 July you register for tutorials for period 1. From 16 July until 21 July you have the oppportunity to change your courses.
  • Phase 3: for the tutorials for period 2 and 3 you register after the start of the academic year, most likely in October. 

Phases for Master students:

  • Phase 1: From Tuesday 9 June until 23 June you register for the courses you want to take in period 1.
  • Phase 2: From Thursday 9 July until 21 July you register for tutorials for period 1. 
  • Phase 3: for the tutorials for period 2 and 3 you register after the start of the academic year, most likely in October. This gives you the opportunity to select a specialisation after period 1.

Step-by-step guide to course registration

Fase 1 (June)

Step 1: Enrol in your degree programme in Studielink

Use Studielink to request enrolment in an UvA degree programme. This requires a DigiD.* Once you have enrolled through Studielink, it may take up to 48 hours before you can register for courses. You can register for courses even if your enrolment is not final yet.

* If you apply for a DigiD or make any changes to it, you will receive an activation code within 5 days.

Step 2: Select your courses

Go to the Course Catalogue, find your degree programme and choose the courses you want to follow. Are you a Bachelor's student and do you need help designing your academic plan, register for the online workshop Schedule your courses next year between 16:00 and 17:00 on 8 June.

Step 3: Add your chosen courses to the Planner

Go to uva.nl/courseregistration, find your courses and click on ‘Add course’.

Step 4: Complete the course registration

As soon as the course registration opens: Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for courses and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’. In the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab you can always find all your valid course registrations.

We're currently unable to guarantee that there will be no overlap between your compulsory and non-compulsory courses, like electives.

Phase 2 and 3 (July and October)

Step 5: Check your timetable

Go to the Planner tab and view your timetable of your courses under ‘Open Timetable’. Make sure that you have no overlap in your timetable for the tutorials, lectures or exams. Go back to your planner, check the boxes for your preferred tutorials and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’. In the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab you can always find all your valid course registrations.

In the first week of phase 2 (9 until 14 July) you can only register for tutorials if you have done a valid registration in phase 1. Moreover, there is a possibility that the courses you picked overlap. You have the possibility to make changes to your course registration from 16 until 21 July. 

Step 6: Complete the course registration

As soon as the course registration opens: Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for the tutorials (WG) you wish to follow and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’. In the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab you can always find all your valid course registrations.

Deregistration

  • You can cancel course registrations at uva.nl/courseregistration. Go to the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab, check the box next to the course you wish to cancel and click on ‘Deregister' and then on ‘OK’. You must cancel courses no later than the Monday of the second week of classes of the period in question.
  • Please note: it is important to deregister for courses you do not plan to follow. If you do not attend a course for which you registered, you will receive a NA registration (the Dutch abbreviation for ‘not-attended'). A NA registration is not a result, but it will overwrite a possible previous grade. Moreover, you will be preventing a fellow student from taking your place in the course.
