Irregular course registration
Course registration per faculty
Because the Master of Logic is an interdisciplinary Master's programme, courses are organized by different Graduate Schools and Educational Institutes. Most importantly, each faculty separately determines the procedures for late registration and the way to register in your first semester.
Most regular Master of Logic courses at the Faculty of Science fall under the formal responsibility of the Graduate School of Informatics. For questions related to course registration, please contact the faculty's Education Service Centre:
Most regular Master of Logic courses at the Faculty of Humanities fall under the formal responsibility of the Programme Administration Philosophy. For questions related to course registration, please contact the faculty's Education Desk:
Please note that first year students do not have to register for first semester courses during the official course registration period in June. Read the paragraphs below for the alternative arrangement. As of the second semester all students need to register through SIS.
To register for courses at the Faculty of Science, please use the master enrol form below, for your first semester only. This form will open after regular course registration is closed. If this does not work, please send an email to the faculty's course registration desk:
The deadline for course registration for first-year students in the first semester is two weeks after the start of the semester. Students starting the programme in the second semester should use the form mentioned at “Late registration” below. This is only possible after the start of the semester, 1 February.
To register for courses at the Faculty of Humanities, please send an email to the Programme Administration Philosophy or go to their office in person. You have until two weeks after the start of the semester to contact them. Please mention that this is your first semester as a Master of Logic student and give them your UvA identity number and a list of the courses you wish to be registered for, including the course codes (to be found in the Uva Course Catalogue).
If you have for some reason been unable to register before the deadline, you can try to submit a late application. Please note that this process differs per faculty.
For courses at the Faculty of Science please use the late enrolment form below, and only with a valid reason such as family or health problems. Without a valid reason you will not be registered and you will not be able to obtain a grade for the course. However, for students in the MSc Logic these rules are a bit more lenient and also include: 'I want to take this course after all and I have the teacher's permission.' If this does not work, please send an email to the faculty's course registration desk:
If you are late registering for courses at the Faculty of Humanities, you will most likely be put on a waiting list. Please contact the faculty's Education Desk:
Registration for courses at other Dutch Universities
To take a course at another Dutch university, please follow these steps:
1. Obtain permission from the relevant Master's programme at the other university to take their course (in view of prerequisites, space constraints, etc.). Should they in turn ask for permission from the MoL, please ask for a letter granting this permission by emailing the MoL office:
Please beware that permission to take a course is not the same as permission to use that course towards graduation.
2. Enrol as a bijvakstudent at the other university. Some universities explain how to do this on their website; some you have to contact directly. While enrolled at the UvA you do not need to pay tuition fees at the other university. They will, however, require a 'proof of payment', which you can get at the Student Service Desk of the UvA in the Roetersstraat 11, Amsterdam, building E (REC-E).
3. Keep the transcript you obtain from the other university in a safe place. Include the transcript when you seek approval for the complete content of your study programme by submitting your academic plan. If you are uncertain whether the Board of Examiners will accept the course as part of your graduation package, please contact the MoL office:
More specific information for courses at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) can be found on the website below. Please note: the info at 'UvA students at FNWI' on the bottom of the page does not apply to MoL students, since the MSc Logic is not a joint programme with VU.
Registration for courses in the MasterMath is an exception to the rules above. Instead, visit the MasterMath website to register. The grades will be automatically registered at the UvA.
Registration for Research Projects
To register for the Coordinated Research Projects organized in January and June, first contact the lecturer of the project in question and ask for permission to join. Then register via the special enrol form in Datanose, using the course code which you can find in the description of the project:
The registration of Individual Research Projects is also done by the lecturer. Right at the start of the project he or she registers the project in DataNose with the title of the project, a short description, and in case the amount of EC is not 6, an explanation. When the project is finished the lecturer enters the grade in DataNose (for projects the grade is Pass or Fail).
Registration still not successful?
If a registration request for certain courses is not granted and you feel this is not right, please contact Tanja Kassenaar:
