Course and exam registration

International Development Studies (Master's)

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.

Specific instructions for IDS students

Students of the Master's in International Development Studies are enrolled for all their compulsory courses by the study adviser.

Students only need to register for elective courses. Make sure to register during the official registration period, because only then will you be guaranteed a place in your courses. The registration periods for the Master's elective courses are:

  • Register in SiS for your thematic electives from Tuesday  October 9th, 8:00 until Wedesday 17 October, 13:00. For more information on which courses are offered see the IDS curriculum 2018-2019 in the UvA digital course guide and the (email) instructions of the study adviser.

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 can only cancel courses up until 15 working days after the start of the course. 

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, the result recorded for this course will be ‘NAP’ (the Dutch abbreviation for ‘non-attendance, counted as exam attempt’). Moreover, you will be preventing a fellow student from occupying your place in the course.
