Deadlines exist for registering for courses and exams. These deadlines are as followed:

Exams and Resits:

At the Faculty of Science, You can register up to five working days prior to the (resit) exam. Please note: the day on which the exam takes place does not count towards the period of 5 working days. Registration for an exam closes at 11:59 PM on the day preceding the period of five working days before the exam date. If you are not registered, you’re not allowed to take the exam. Registration for resits is not done automatically.

Note: Register for resits immediately after receiving a failing grade, so you will not forget to do so.

Working days are all days except Saturdays, Sundays, New Year's Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, King's Day, Liberation Day, Ascension Day plus the Friday after, Whitsun Monday, final day of International Four Days Marches Nijmegen, December 25-31.

If you want to start (or re-register for) a Master’s programme as of 1 March 2024, you must register in Studielink before 20 February 2024. If you register later than that, you will not be able to start the programme until 1 April 2024. This applies to all registration deadlines, expect for those in August and September.

If you did not register before the 20th of the current month, it is not possible to partake in Master’s exams in the following month because you are not officially actively registered for the Master’s programme.
