Elective Registration

Elective Registration

On this page, you will soon (approx. 1 November 2016) find all the information regarding the master elective registration 2016. If you have any questions after reading all the information on this page, please refer to the FAQ-document at the bottom of this page.

  • During the Spring semester all students will take three different electives in block 3, 4 and 5. We distinguish two types of electives:

    • Master programme electives (MPE's): these are electives offered by the own MSc-programme.
    • Master free electives (MFE's): electives offered by an MSc-programme different than the one studied by the student.

    All students should register for at least two master programme electives. The third elective can be either another MPE or a MFE from another programme.

    Elective overview per master programme

    This course overview  (document will be uploaded soon) includes all programme and free electives and specifies which courses you may take. 

    All students can attend an elective info session for more information on electives of a particular programme or read the course description through the Course Guide.

  • Registration for the electives takes place in two different rounds. During the first round all students will choose two MPE's only. During the second registration round, the students will be able to choose their MFE or a third MPE.

    Round 1: end of November 2016 (exact dates to be announced) students choose two programme electives only.

    Round 2: mid- December 2016 (exact dates to be announced) all students choose their free elective or a third programme elective.

    Subscribe for the MSc Programme Enrolment channel

    The elective registration will be organised on the MSc Programme Enrolment channel on SIN-Online. Make sure to subscribe to this channel well in advance. The registration itself will become visible after 20  November (exact dates to be announced).

    Registration procedure (more information to be announced)

    Every master elective has a maximum number of spots. The registration is a 'preferential' registration, students will be allowed to rank their electives from most preferred (1) to least preferred (number depending on available (programme) electives).

    Numbers of spaces cannot be adjusted. This means there may not be enough room for every student for certain popular courses. Please also note that elective course instructors do not determine the number of spaces in electives, so please do not approach them about spaces in their courses.

    If you are intent on taking a specific elective and want to have the best chance at securing a spot, make sure you log-in early on SIN-Online, ideally on the morning of the first day of registration. The enrolment will open from 8:30 in the morning.

    Choose 1 elective per block

    Please note that you cannot take more than one elective per Block. You will need to rank all your programme electives during the first round of registration. An algorithm will assign you to two programme electives in two different blocks.

    During the second registration round you will be able to rank all available free electives in your last remaining block. During this round, you will also be able to rank electives from other master programmes (free electives).

  • The majority of master programmes will be holding elective information sessions in the weeks prior to the elective registration (end of October - Mid-November). If you are interested in hearing about the electives on offer this year, we encourage you to attend any of these informational sessions. Please see the schedule below for dates and times. No registration is necessary.

  • There are several moments during the year where you can adjust your original elective choices. First of all, you are allowed to switch your elective choices at all time during the two elective registration rounds in November and December.

    Second, there will be an opportunity to switch elective choices prior to each block during the switch week. It is therefore possible that spots become available in electives that were originally full after the first registration rounds.

    Overview of the switch weeks (dates subject to change)

    Switch week Block 3: Monday 18 January 2016 08.30am - Wednesday 20 January 2016 4.59.59pm (preliminary date)

    Switch week Block 4: Monday 29 February 2016 08.30am - Sunday 6 March 2016 11.59.59pm (preliminary date)

    Switch week Block 5: Monday 25 April 2016 08.30am - Sunday 1 May 2016 11.59.5 (preliminary date)

    All switch weeks will be announced through SIN-Online. Therefore, keep an eye for last-minute changes.

    Please note that the switch week is the last opportunity to switch electives! After the switch week, your registration is final, no exceptions made!
