Step-by-step guide course registration

1. Enrol in your degree programme via Studielink

Use Studielink to request enrolment in an UvA degree programme, if you haven't done so already. Check the following page to read more about re-enrolment in a Bachelor’s or Master’s programme.

2. Select your courses

Go to the Course Catalogue, find your degree programme and select the courses you want to follow.

3. Enter your chosen courses in the Planner

Go to, find your courses and click on ‘Add Course’.

4. Check your timetable

Go to the Planner tab and view your course timetable under ‘Open timetable’. If you have registered for tutorials, make sure that there is no overlap in your timetable.

5. Complete the course registration

Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for the tutorials you wish to follow and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’.

6. Check your registration

Go to the 'Overview of registrations’ tab and check your registrations.

Note: It is compulsory for all students to attend the first lecture of the course. Students absent without prior notification will lose their right to placement for the course.

Deregistering for courses

  • You can cancel course registrations at Go to the ‘Overview of Registrations’ tab, check the box next to the course you wish to cancel, click on ‘Deregister' and then on ‘OK’.
  • You can only cancel courses up until the end of the second week after the start of the course. 
    Please note: it is important to deregister from courses you do not plan to take part in. If you do not attend a course for which you registered, the result recorded for this course will be ‘NAP’ (‘non-attendance’). Moreover, you will be preventing a fellow student from taking your place in the course.
