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.
Students of the Research 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 Research Master's elective courses are:
* If you apply for a DigiD or make any changes to it, you will receive an activation code within 5 days.
Go to the Course Catalogue, find your degree programme and select the courses you want to follow.
Go to uva.nl/courseregistration, find your courses and click on ‘Add Course’.
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.
Go to the Planner tab, check the boxes for the tutorials (WG) [or other course components] you wish to follow and click on 'Register' and then on ‘OK’.
Go to the 'Overview of registrations’ tab and check your registrations.
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.
