You have to register for courses per study period and you have to re-enrol for your study programme per academic year. If you fail to to do either on time, you can not partake in education. Look here for information on (re)enrolling for your course.

You register for courses 4 times a year during a registration period. In the Course planner and in Osiris you can see which courses belong to your program. Do not choose courses in the same timeslot.

In the first teaching period of your program, you will be registered for the courses in your program. After that you arrange it yourself through Osiris. You can then also make your own choices in the program.

  • Period 1 (Start courses: Monday 6 September 2021)
    Enrolment period: Monday 31 May 2021 08.00 uur till Sunday 27 June 2021 23.59 uur
  • Period 2 (​Start courses: Monday 15 November 2021)
    Enrolment period: Monday 20 September 2021 08.00 uur till  Sunday 3 October 2021 23.59 uur
  • Period 3 (Start courses: Monday 7 February 2022)
    Enrolment period: Monday 1 November 2021 08.00 uur till Sunday 28 November 2021 23.59 uur
  • Period 4 (Start courses: Monday 25 April 2022)
    Enrolment period: Monday 31 January 2022 08.00 uur till Sunday 27 February 2022 23.59 uur

During the registration period, you will receive a message and reminder at your UU email address. You can then register for 2 courses (max. 15 EC) through Osiris. If you register in time, there will almost always be room in the courses of your first choice. 

If you want to take more than two courses, use this application form and submit it during the registration period. Do this after you have registered for the other two courses. After the registration period has closed, you will hear whether your request for an extra course has been accepted. Requests for an extra course are no longer possible during the post-registration days.

Did you forget to make use of the registration period or do you want to take another course? Then you still have a chance during the post-registration days. You can then register via Osiris only for courses where there are still places left, so your choice is limited!

An overview of the number of available places will appear here a few days before the next post-registration day.

The course descriptions in Osiris indicate whether there are entry and selection requirements. If you do not meet these requirements, you cannot register or you will be deregistered after a check. If you think you do meet these requirements but you cannot enroll, please contact Student Affairs Geosciences for advice.

If you have not received a notice of deregistration at your UU email address at least 15 working days before the start of the course then you have been placed on the course.

Do you not want to participate in the course you have registered for? Or do you decide to stop with the course? If so, please unsubscribe via Osiris as soon as possible and no later than two weeks after the start of the course. If you deregister when the course has already started, please also notify the course coordinator.

If you want to take an elective at another Utrecht University program or outside of Utrecht University, orient yourself in time. Please note that other registration periods and procedures apply.

If you want to take an elective course other than the ones listed in the elective courses of your program, first ask permission from the Board of Examiners via examencommissie.geo@uu.nl.

Please contact Student Affairs Geosciences if you have any questions or problems with registration.
