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. You can submit the following types of requests:

Request for exemption

An exemption is based on credits obtained at another University or Institution at MA level, before enrolment at the UvA. Original proof of these credits needs to be sent to the Examinations Board.

Advance approval of credits

This is for credits to be obtained at other Universities or Institutions, in place of one or more courses of the regular programme.
Note: courses at National Research Schools are an obligatory element in the programme of a Research Master and do not require this form.

Request for registration of credits

This form is needed to register for credits obtained at another University or Institution, such as the National Research Schools. A proof of credits, e.g. a transcript or certificate has to be sent to the Examinations Board through their postal address.

Other requests

  • Approval of a self determined MA programme before starting this programme.
  • Approval of a programme that deviates in one or more of its mandatory components from the programme as stated in the Teaching and Examination Regulations (OER).

The committee will inform the student of its decision within 20 working days. Students can track their request and view the decision at all times via the online system.

For all requests directed to the Examinations Board, use the form below.
