Minor

register for a minor

Please note: you have to register in the minor system and in Osiris (for the module) before the beginning of the quartile

Students can register for a minor through OSIRIS-student. This is possible for minors in the first semester:

  • From the day of the minor information market onward – i.e. Wednesday 30th of March 2016 - up to and including Tuesday 10th of May 2016.
  • Please note: the registration for Learning to Teach (Leren Lesgeven in Dutch) will close Wednesday 20th of April 2016.
  • For the join-in minors Technical, Professional and Intercultural Communication and Psychology in Learning & Instruction are limited spots available, and first come, first serve applies. 

For join-in minors in the second semester the registration deadlines will be announced in autumn of 2016.

Registration for a minor through OSIRIS is meant for UT-students who have to take a minor. Registration for a minor is mandatory and is only possible during the period described above through OSIRIS. A UT-student can choose a maximum of 30 EC of minors in OSIRIS. In practice this is equivalent to 2 minors of 15 EC each. Before registration please consult:

Exceptions

  • Study abroad – for this minor you should follow a procedure and will be enrolled by your study programme for a so-called ‘exchange minor’.
  • Following a minor at a Dutch university – other than the UT – or university of applied sciences. After approval of your proposal you will be registered by your study programme for a so-called ‘exchange minor’.

What if you were not able to enroll on a minor because of extraordinary circumstances in time? You want to enroll, but the registration is not possible because you missed the deadline.

  • Be aware that a minor can be fully booked and it is not possible to enroll anymore. That is a risk when you miss the deadline.
  • Send an e-mail to minor@utwente.nl with an explanation of the reasons why you did not enroll on time.
  • You will be informed about the next steps.

Please note: if you want to follow a minor you have to:

  1. Enroll for a minor during the period of registration using the minorcode/minorname
  2. Just before the start of the quartile enroll for the associated OSIRIS-module by using the OSIRIS-code

By enrolling for a minor you make sure that you can take the TOM-module as minor. By enrolling for the TOM-module in OSIRIS just before the start of the quartile you get access to Blackboard. At that moment all information about the TOM-module on blackboard is up-to-date.

Registration for a minor through OSIRIS

Registration for a minor through OSIRIS

To register for a minor through OSIRIS one should follow the following procedure:

  • Log in at OSIRIS as you would for normal use
  • Choose the option Register (in the menu bar on top)
  • Choose the tab Register
  • Click on the link Minor
  • Find the minor you wish to enrol for using the search function or click on the arrow next to the drop-down list to select the faculty that offers the minor or do nothing to see all minors
  • Click Next (on the top or bottom of the page)
  • Select the minor of your choosing (please note that unfortunately it is also possible to see minors for which you cannot enrol)
  • Click Enrol (on the top or bottom of the page)

Unless you receive the message that you do not meet the entry requirements, you have been successfully enrolled administratively for the minor you selected and will receive a confirmation e-mail. Administrative registration does not guarantee participation in the minor(s); it still needs to be checked if you meet the entry requirements of your study programme. You can find if your choice for a minor has been approved or rejected in the Study progress review tab. The time at which this happens depends on the reference date set by your study programme for checking the admissibility for minors. 

The learning to educate minors have a participation limit. If there are more applicants than places an intake procedure will be started.

Every student can register for 30 EC of minors, which is in principle 2 minors of 15 EC each. If you opt for the 30 EC version of learning to educate it is only possible to register for this minor.

If you have already registered for 30 EC of minors and would like to follow an additional minor still, please contact the central coordinator Major-minor.

If you are still experiencing problems with registration after consulting this website, the website of your study programme and your peers, please send a mail to minor@utwente.nl.

 

Please note that if your choice for a minor has been approved you have been admitted to the minor; however you do need to register for the module matching your minor in OSIRIS for quartile 1A and later 1B. Thus you can access to Blackboard.
