Course registration


In order to participate in education at Utrecht University, you must register for courses per semester. You are automatically registered in all required courses in the first semester of your first year. This will be done in the orientation week by the Student Information Desk. As of the second semester, you have to register for courses yourself. You must also not forget to re-enrol in your programme each year.

Before you register for a course, check whether you meet the entry requirements. Also be aware of the registration deadlines of other faculties.

Course registration

You register for courses in OSIRIS. You can only do so during a registration period.

Late enrolment days

Shortly before the start of each block the late enrolment days take place. During these days you can register for courses which still have places available. A week before the late enrolment days you will receive an email with a list of all bachelor courses you can still register for. You'll also find this list on the homepage of Economics and Business Economics as a news item. 

Please note! The course options for late enrolment are very limited: only those courses that have places left over will be open for late enrolment.

Course deregistration

If you have registered for a course in which, on second thought, you do not wish to participate, please deregister as soon as possible, so that a fellow student can take your place.

You may deregister via OSIRIS until the end of the second week of the period in which the course is taught. After that it is no longer possible to deregister and 'NP' (Not Participated) will appear on your Study Progress Review.

Terminating your degree programme enrolment

If you want to terminate your enrolment for the degree programme, you need to submit a 'Request for de-enrolment' in Studielink (under 'My degree programmes' > select the degree programme for which you want to terminate your enrolment > 'Request for de-enrolment'). Studielink will subsequently send you a confirmation. Before you do this, it is helpful to carefully read what you need to take into account.

Re-enrolling in your degree programme

You must re-enrol in your degree programme in Studielink every year. You can do so from 1 June until at the latest 31 August. You need a DigiD in order to submit your request to re-enrol. Make sure that your email address in Studielink is always up-to-date: decisions about your enrolment are sent to that email address.

You have until the start of the new academic year (31 August at the latest) to terminate your enrolment.
