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 exams, resits and the Canvas page for that course. You don't have to pay yet in order to register for courses.
Make sure to register during the official registration period, because only then will you be guaranteed a place in your compulsory courses. The coming registration periods for the Bachelor's and Master’s courses are:
BSc / MSc

* For the Master’s courses there is a separate registration period for periods 2 and 3 because for most Master's programmes a specialisation choice has to be made in period 1. Note: there is no late course registration period. This is the only opportunity to register for courses of period 2 and 3.
See below for an overview of the registration periods of all degree programmes offered at the University of Amsterdam.
* If you apply for a DigiD or make any changes to it, you will receive an activation code within 5 days.

Go to uva.nl/courseregistration, find your courses and click on ‘Add course’.
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, you should register for courses that have no overlapping tutorials, lectures or exams.
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.
