Deregister for (re)examinations
You can deregister for (re)exainations up to one week before the exam date. For example: you can cancel for an exam on Friday 24/12/2020 until 23:59 on Friday 17/12/2020.
Courses over multiple periods
You register for courses and examinations per period; each period has different registration dates. For courses that take place in combined periods (for example, courses in period 1 to 3), the registration term of the period in which the course starts (period 1) always applies.
Registration period for courses
You can register for courses during the registration period for the period in which the course takes place. Registration for period 1 of the next academic year starts in July. You can find the exact date in the Registration Deadlines. The deadline for signing up for courses is a few weeks before the start of education. An exception to this is period 1, in which case you can register up to and including the first education week.
You can register until 23.59 hours on the last registration day.
Registering for examinations
When you sign up for a course, the check mark for the participation in the exam is also on. This means that you will be automatically signed up for the examination.
The deadline for registering for the exam is the same as the deadline for the course. The deadline is a few weeks before the start of the course.
Note! You cannot register for the exam outside the registration period if you have not registered for a course (part) during the registration period.
Signing up for re-examination
When you have received a fail (or NVD) for the examination, you will automatically be registered for the resit.
If you did not take part in the examination (No Show) or if you passed the examination, you have to sign up for the re-examination yourself if you want to take part in it. You can sign up for the re-examination as soon as the results of the examination (first opportunity) are published or the day after the examination date. You can sign up for re-examinations up to 1 week before the re-examination date. Example: for an exam on Thursday 28 October you can sign up until Wednesday 20 October, 23.59 hrs.
When registering for a resit, the last result obtained applies, even if it is lower than the previously obtained result. If you register for a resit but do not participate, a No Show will be registered but the previously obtained result will remain valid.
Note! You cannot register for the re-exam outside the registration period if you have not registered for a course (part) during the registration period.

|Courses||Up to and including the 1st week of the start of the course|
