Book your courses and exams


By default, you will have to book your courses and register your exams yourself.

You book your courses and register your exams (incl. resits) yourself
if you follow one of these programmes:

  • Bachelor in Psychology
  • Master in Psychology
  • Research Master in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience
  • Master in Forensic Psychology

The Education Office books all courses and exams (incl. resits) for:

  • Exchange programme (incoming)
  • Master Mental Health
  • Pre-master Mental Health
  • International Joint Master of Research in Work and Organizational Psychology
  • ​​​Pre-master PSY



You can only attend courses or exams for which you have a valid booking. This includes access to the course materials, such as the course manual and recordings. Register online via the Student Portal during the designated booking windows. The Student Portal will alert you when a booking window is open.

As from 1 June of each year, you can book your courses for the entire year. By already registering in advance, you reduce the chance of not being able to participate in a course. Booking courses and exams is your responsability, make sure you do not miss a booking deadline.

Exemptions to the rule
The first period of the first year (Bachelor and all Masters) will be booked by the Education Office. This does not include any resits later in the year.



You have to book all courses, practicals, skill trainings and exams and resits that you will be taking in this academic year. See the course overview for the courses of your programme.

  • Caveat: the booking interface may also show you courses from different study years or other programmes, which you do not need to take.
2023-2024 Modules or exams that you need to book:
1 - All courses, practicals    
and skill trainings.

• A course booking always includes the first exam. You do not need to book the first exam separately.

• A course booking does not include the corresponding practicals. You also need to book those modules yourself.

• You can book your courses for the entire year.  By already registering for the entire year, you reduce the chance of not being able to participate in a course.

• Third-year Bachelor students (also those who take electives at another faculty in the Netherlands or abroad): for period 1 you need to book Skills V, the corresponding practicals Portfolio and Quick Career Advice, and of course the modules in period 4, 5 and 6.

• Courses that have entrance requirements can only be booked once the entrance requirement has been satisfied.  Courses with entrance requirements are:  Portfolio Practicals, Research Practical PSY2027/IPN2027, Statistics II PSY2028/IPN2028Statistics III PSY3008/IPN3008,  and Psychodiagnostics PSYPN3109/IPN3109.

See art. 4.2 of the Education and Examination Regulation for details.

• See below for courses where your preference matters, such as 'Discover Psychology',  'Action' and 'Psychodiagnostics'.

• The booking interface may also show you courses from different study years or other programmes, which you do not need to take.

• 1-year Master Work & Organisational Psychology: make sure to book Research Methods PSY4094.

2 - "Takes Exam Only'-

• Most courses offer two exam opportunities per academic year: a first exam directly
after the course, and a resit later in the year.

Both exam opportunities are open to students who still need to pass the exam, but already
have fulfilled the attendance requirement.

For the exam right after the course, select the 'takes exam only' option while booking the course .
This will register you for the exam only, giving you access to the current course materials.

The repeat education sessions might help you to prepare for the exam.

3 - Resits you
want to take

• For each first exam, there is a second exam (resit) later in the year.
To register for any resit, use the exam registration window of the period
in which the resit takes place.

See the exam schedule  for the exact dates, times and locations of resits.
