Completing academic year 2023-2024

Binding study advice (BSA)

For first-year Bachelor's students of the Faculty of Arts, a binding study advice of 45 EC applies. You are not allowed to continue your studies if you do not meet this standard at the end of the first academic year.

Binding Study Advice

Applying for diplomas and certificates

Have you completed all courses of your Bachelor's, pre-Master's or Master's programme? Then apply for your diploma or certificate as soon as possible. If you have submitted a request to the examination board, please wait for the result before requesting your diploma.

If you want to obtain your Bachelor's or Master's degree this academic year, you must pass your last exam or thesis before 1 September. If you fail to do so, or if the grading period prevents you from applying for your degree until September, you will have to re-enrol via Studielink for next academic year.

Implications of deregistering

Registration academic year 2024-2025



If you are continuing your studies at Radboud University, you must re-enrol for the 2023-2024 academic year via Studielink.

Preferably arrange your re-enrolment before 15 August, but no later than 31 August.

If your re-enrolment is not completed by 1 September, this may affect your enrolment in education, your public transport provision, and your access to the RU-systems.


Enrolling for a Master's degree at the Faculty of Arts

Will you be starting a Master's programme at our faculty next year? Please register via Studielink for the Master’s specialisation you wish to enrol for. Make sure you have requested Bachelor's degree or pre-master's certificate in time.

You can also read what to do if you take your final Bachelor's exams in July or August on the page below (under the heading 'graduation').


Registration for courses, exams and resits

You can register for courses and accompanying seminars in the new academic year from Monday 1 June until Friday 12 July at the latest. When you register for a course, if you have a valid bachelor's or master's registration, you are automatically registered for the first opportunity of the exam. 

After successful registration you will receive a confirmation in Osiris Announcements and in your student email inbox. Please keep this confirmation, as it is proof that you have registered. Please contact STIP if you have not received this confirmation.
