Registration and payment

The registration period for semester 1 (2024/2025) will start on June 3rd.


Important! You can only use this page to register for courses within the Faculty of Humanities. If you are interested in taking courses in another faculty, see the full range of contract and non-examination courses. N.B. registration for these courses occurs via the relevant faculty.

If you are unsure whether a course is available, are still discussing your options with the Study Adviser or have another reason why you will not be able to register in time, please contact the coordinator for contract teaching before the registration deadline to discuss your options.

Important! Your registration is only valid once the university has received an authenticated copy of a VWO (pre-university education) diploma or HBO (University of Applied Sciences) first-year diploma, or a certificate at a similar level. For more information, see: contract teaching admissions requirements.

As soon as possible after your registration form and (where applicable) your diploma have been received, you will be sent a letter of confirmation including details such as your timetable. You can also find this information on MyTimetable . You do not require a student account to make use of this. 

The registration form can be found here
