Course enrolment procedure

The course enrolment procedure for all* GSLS Master’s courses is as follows:

  1. Prerequisite knowledge and placement rules are clearly described for each course in the Osiris course catalogue**.
     
  2. Students can register via Osiris Student for a course during the corresponding course registration period (see table below).
    Please note: if students have already registered for a course in 2019-2020 via email to the course coordinator, they still have to register again via Osiris Student. We would appreciate it if you could inform those students, if you already received applications for your course.
     
  3. The course coordinator receives the registration list of students that have applied for their course from the Master administration office within one week after the registration deadline.
     
  4. When admission to a course requires additional information, e.g. a motivation letter, this must be clearly described in in the course description in the Osiris course catalogue**. Students will need to email the information separately to the course coordinator (in addition to the Osiris course registration and before the registration deadline).
     
  5. The course coordinator determines which students are admitted to the course and sends the placement list to the Master administration office within two weeks after registration deadline.
    Please be aware of the deadlines and arrange replacement in case of absence. Alternatively, a course coordinator might decide that the admission of students is done by the master administration office.

    We advise that placement is done in the following order of priority:
    1. Students from own Master’s programme for which the course is mandatory (course coordinators have to make sure that the capacity is sufficient).
    2. Students from own Master’s programme.
    3. GSLS students from other Master’s programmes.
    4. Other students, including PhD-students.
    5. Students that are on the blacklist. (They did not deregister on time, did not show up or withdrew last-minute without a valid reason for a course previously. They will be placed with the lowest priority for course registration in the next period by the Master administration.)

      ​In case of capacity issues, it is advised to place students from category 2 to 5 by lot. This can be done automatically by Osiris via the administration office.
       
  6. The Master administration office enters the list of accepted students in Osiris.
     
  7. Students that have been admitted to the course and do not want to participate in the course have to deregister before the deregistration deadline (see table below).
     
  8. Courses that are not fully booked or that have new places available due to reregistration of students will be re-opened for enrolment. The course coordinator determines which of the re-registered students are admitted to the course and sends the placement list to the Master administration office within 1 working day.

* With the exception of Epidemiology (Postgraduate) courses; see the Epidemiology website for more information.
** If you want to change the course description in the Osiris course catalogue for your course, please contact Nivard Koning (BMS programmes) or Hans Luijendijk (Science faculty).

​Please note:

  • The GSLS administration officers are responsible for the course enrolment procedure. Please forward students with questions about course registration and admission to the administration officers of their faculty.
  • The registration of course results remains unchanged, see Teacher guide - Registering course results.
