Irregular course registration

[Ergens anders?]

Course registration at the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Humanities

Because the Master of Logic is an interdisciplinary Master's programme, courses are organized by different Graduate Schools and Educational Institutes.

Most regular Master of Logic courses at the Faculty of Science fall under the formal responsibility of the Graduate School of Informatics. Registration is handled by the Education Service Centre Faculty of Science (ESC).

Most regular Master of Logic courses at the Faculty of Humanities fall under the formal responsibility of the Programme Administration Philosophy.


First-year students

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 this form for your first semester only. This form will open after regular course registration is closed. 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 below, at “Late registration”. This is only possible after the start of the semester, February 1st.

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 Course Catalogue --> link).


Late registration

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 this form 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 vakaanmelding-fnwi at

For courses at the Faculty of Humanities, please contact the Programme Administration Philosophy. If you are late, you will most likely be put on a waiting list.


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 mol-illc at Please beware that permission to take a course is not the same as permission to use that course towards graduation.
  1. 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).
  2. 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 handing in your approval form. If you are uncertain whether the Board of Examiners will accept the course as part of your graduation package, please contact us at mol-illc at

More specific information for courses at the Vrije Universiteit (VU) can be found here. But 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

Coordinated Research Projects (January/June):
To register for the projects organized in January and June, first contact the lecturer of the project in question and ask for permission to join. Then register via, using the course code which you can find in the description of the project.

Individual Research Projects:
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).

Instruction for lecturers


Registration still not successful?

If a request for late registration for certain courses is not granted and you feel this is not right, please contact Tanja Kassenaar.
