Study Plan Application (SPA)

Since September 1st 2019 the master programme Software Engineering has introduced the SPA (Study Plan Application). The SPA was already in use by other master programmes within the Graduate School of Informatics and has made the administrative procedures regarding study programme much more efficient. Therefore, all master programmes of the GSI have implemented  this system.

The SPA can be found in Datanose on your personal page under the heading PROGRESS (NL: voortgang) or login at

Students can use the SPA to:

  • check their study progress
  • send a request to the Examinations Board (concerning their study programme)
  • submit a request to replace a course or to request an exemption etc.

Since the master programme Software Engineering has a standard curriculum most students will probably not use the SPA very often.

However: please note that if your curriculum changes ( e.g.: you change 1 course from the standard curriculum you started with) during your enrolment as a SE master student you will have to request approval from the Examinations Board by means of the SPA for your new curriculum.

Do you have questions regarding your study plan or the SPA? Please contact the programme coordinator Nienke BoevĂ©-Spil or send an email to
