Your academic plan (AcadPlan) is the list of courses, research projects and the thesis project that you want to graduate with.
After you have requested the Examinations Board Logic for the approval of your thesis project, you should request the EB for the approval of your academic plan.
Please make sure that all individual research projects you plan to graduate with, completed or not, are registered in DataNose by the lecturer before you start preparing your Academic Plan. Please remind the lecturer if this hasn't been done yet.
Once that is done, go to AcadPlan in DataNose:
How to fill in the plan?
You start by entering your track.
This choice will show the 6 categories that should speak for themselves:
- compulsory components
- track components
- research projects
- restricted-choice electives
- free-choice electives
- master's thesis
Plus an extra tab, 'Extracurricular MSc Logic'.
Then you make sure all the courses and projects you want to graduate with are in your plan and in the right place.
- The elements you passed are there automatically with a grade or AVV (Pass).
- All other elements have a box you can tick in case you want to use them toward graduation, but haven't completed them yet.
- Research projects that you did not complete yet, should be registered in DataNose by the lecturer to appear in the Plan. If this is not the case, please contact your lecturer and ask them to do so.
- Courses that are not in the list of electives (either from UvA or from other universities), which you did not complete yet, can be added to the free-choice electives manually.
You are allowed to move some elements to the extra tab 'Extracurricular MSc Logic'.
Of course this can only be done as long as the remaining components comply with the requirements for graduation mentioned in the OER (TER, Teaching and Examination Regulations). This means that:
- the total number of EC in the main part of the Academic Plan is 120;
- all compulsory components (including a research project of 6 EC) are in the main part of the Plan.
- at least 72 EC are obtained in MoL components (obligatory, restricted-choice or research projects).
Please be aware that the components in the extra tab 'Extracurricular MSc Logic' will appear in a separate part of your diploma-supplement. These courses will not be counted toward your GPA nor toward any decisions on a cum laude qualification.
However, in an official transcript these courses will appear in the main list and will be counted toward the GPA.
In case you really do not want an elective component to appear on your diploma-supplement, move it to the extracurricular tab first and there you can delete it altogether.
If you would need an official transcript were this course also doesn't appear, please mention this (and that the course is not part of your Academic Plan either) when requesting an official transcript from the MoL administration at mol-illc at uva.nl.
Restricted-choice electives from the VU
Courses from the VU which are part of the restricted-choice electives of the MoL should be added to your Plan manually.
Please do so by clicking on the little arrow next to the course, click on Replace with bèta VU course and follow the instructions.
Do not add these courses to the free-choice electives.
Please know that you will have to bring the original VU transcript or a certified copy in which the course(s) is (are) mentioned with grade and credits to the Education Service Desk in SP 904. They will then register the grade.
VU courses that are not in the restricted choice electives should be registered as external courses.
Courses from the MasterMath are all registered as UvA courses. It normally takes a bit longer than regular UvA courses before the grade appears. If a MasterMath course is part of the restricted-choice electives it will suffice if you just tick the box. If it is a course outside of the restricted-choice electives you have to add it to the free-choice electives as another UvA course.
If there is no grade registered for it at the UvA yet, please find the course in the UvA course catalogue and enter the course code in your Plan.
Courses taken at other universities
Courses taken at another university or transfer credits previoulsly approved by the Examinations Board Logic, should be added to your Plan in the part of the free-choice electives.
In case of transfer credits (credits you obtained before you started in the MoL or LY) you need to upload a pdf of the approval letter of the EB Logic.
Please know that you will have to bring the original transcript or a certified copy in which the (transferred) course(s) is (are) mentioned with grade and credits to the Education Service Desk at SP 904. They will then register the grade(s).
Note about applying for exemptions:
In case you run across this option, please know that this option does not apply to the Master of Logic.
