Admission, Eligibility and Registration

Conditionally Admitted

The eligibility requirements for a specific course are stipulated in the syllabus (see course catalogue). In order to be admitted to a course, you must fulfill the eligibility requirements. If you are conditionally admitted to a course or program, you will need to provide proof that you meet these requirements prior to course start. If you are conditionally admitted to a course that was ranked as your highest priority on the admissions website, you may not be admitted to courses that you ranked with a lower priority. If you then fail to meet the eligiblity requirements, you may be left without a study alternative. It is therefore important that you only apply for those courses where you are certain to meet the eligibility requirements.


Course registration is required for all students at the department. Without course registration you cannot attend seminars, take exams or receive supervision. Registration may be done online or at an enrollment meeting, depending on the course. Information about registration for a specific course will be advertised i the Student portal. You cannot be registered to a course if you do not meet the eligibility requirements.


If you decide to drop a course you have been registered for, you should notify the departmental office,, or to your teacher as soon as possible in order to un-register. This must be done within three weeks of registration. After three weeks we may register an incomplete course if you choose to drop out, in which case it is not possible to apply to the course again through It might, however, be possible to re-register to the same course another term but only if there are spots available on the course.

Late Application

If the course is open for late applications you may apply the that course after the official application deadline (15 April for courses in the autumn term and 15 October for courses in the sprong term). Note: the fact that a course is available for late applications does not guarantee that there are still spots available on the course. Guaranteed admission does not apply to late applications.

Wait-Listed Applicants

Wait-listed applicants may be offered a place on a course depending on availability.

Continuing Your Studies

In order to advance to the next level (from A to B, from B to C, etc.) in your studies, it is essential that you meet the eligibility requirements. This is even true for students who are enrolled within a program. It is important that you only apply for those courses where you are certain to meet the eligibility requirements.
