  • Registration procedure for UvA-courses

    First Semester

    As the MSc Logic is an interdisciplinary Master's programme, courses are organised by different Graduate Schools and Educational Institutes. At times, this can be confusing as these schools and Institutes have different registration deadlines and registration procedures for first year students in their first semester or if you, for some reason, are too late to register within the deadline. In those cases please read the instruction on this webpage carefully:

  • Additional important information on restriction course registration courses MSc AI

    Due to the large number of students who apply for admission to the master programme AI, the programme was forced to place some restrictions on several courses. The programme and the Graduate School of Informatics regret having to enforce these restrictions on courses, but lacks the facilities to admit all students from other programmes.

    The courses from the master programme Artificial Intelligence are available to all students for registration, but please note that due to the limited capacity of the courses students of the master programme Artificial Intelligence have priority.

  • Course Catalogue

    Consult the Course Catalogue for general educational information and for specific information about the master’s programmes, courses, contact persons, etc. Here you can also find which Faculty (educational institute) organises the course. The Course Catalogue is available online.
