Please read the Course Registration Guidelines for detailed instructions on how the process works for students at AUC.
AUC Course Catalogue
In the AUC Course Catalogue (on the UvA website) you can find an overview of all courses that are offered at AUC, this is the official guide of which courses are offered and in which major they fit.
Tip: You can use the filters (left menu) to show only certain types of courses. To show only the courses being offered in one semester period, use the “Start in period” filter. Select the first box for the 16-week courses (September-December in semester 1; February-May in semester 2). Select the third box for the 4-week courses (January in semester 1; June in semester 2).
Always check AUC's Academic Standards and Procedures (AS&P) to make sure you meet the requirements for your graduation. This is the only official document, in which the requirements for graduation and information about following courses at AUC are clearly stated.
Tip: When Course Registration is open, you can select a course in the Course Catalogue and go straight into the course planner to register on that course, using the link “Add to course planner”.
The timetable of all available courses can be found in AUC Portal.
