Put in a request for approval if you want to take courses that are not part of your standard study programme.
Courses within Utrecht University
Go to Osiris Student and submit your request (tab 'Cases'). State the courses that you wish to follow. Also indicate how you want to include these courses in your programme, e.g. as an elective, or instead of a compulsary course.
Courses from other Dutch or international universities
A request for approval of courses from other universities consists of two steps:
- Ask approval prior to taking the course(s) you wish to follow.
- Upload course description(s), including information on the method(s) of assessment.
- After completion of the course(s) ask for registration of the obtained credits in Osiris by handing in your transcript listing the courses, grades and credits you have obtained.
- The transcript must be emailed directly to Examensecretariaat.firstname.lastname@example.org by the institution where you took the courses. Due to the corona measures it is not possible to hand it in at the Student Desk.
If you have taken different courses than those previously approved by the Board of Examiners, you must put in a new request for approval through Osiris > Case.
Translation to Dutch grades takes place on the basis of this conversion table and the information available on the transcript.
Please note that as of the academic year 2019 - 2020, grades from foreign universities are no longer translated to the Dutch scale (1-10). Instead, they will be converted to the alphanumerical results Pass/Fail.
