  • Registration rules for courses and exams/resits

    Registration deadlines

    Courses: until 4 weeks prior to the start of the course *
    Exams: until 4 weeks prior to the start of the course **
    Resit: until 1 week before the (re)examination. Provided that you are registered for the course

    * Exceptions include
    Period 1: until and including the 1st week of the course
    Period 2: until two weeks before the course
    Period 4: until three weeks before the course

    ** Exception
    Period 4: up to three weeks prior to the course

    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 deadline of the period in which the course starts (period 1) always applies.

    Registration 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. 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 exams

    When you register 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 resit/re-examination 

    When you have received a fail (or NVD) for the exam, 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 register 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 2022 you can sign up until Wednesday 20 October 2022, 23.59 hours.

    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 exam outside the registration period if you have not registered for a course (part) during the registration period.

    You can deregister for a course up to and including the first week of the start of the course. For example: for a course given in education period 3 that starts on 10/01/2022, you can deregister until 23:59 hours on 17/01/2022.
