MSc course registration as a WIMEK PhD

The procedure to register for an MSc course as PhD candidate.

Registration for MSc courses requires a three-steps procedure:

Step 1: Send an email indicating which course you want to take

MSc course as part of your Qualifying Exam (QE)

If you have to take an MSc course as part of your Qualifying Exam (QE, see General admission procedure point 2), please send an email to phd.services@wur.nl, indicating the code of the course, and that you want to register for it as part of your QE.

MSc course as part of your Training and Supervision Plan (TSP)

If you want to take an MSc course as part of your Training and Supervision Plan (TSP), please first discuss with your supervisor(s) which MSc courses you want to take. Make sure you (have) put them in your TSP (maximum of 2 MSc courses; or 12 ECTS). Also, discuss with your supervisor whether you need to take the whole course, or whether it is possible to do only part of it.
If your supervisor agrees:

  1. send an email to WIMEK (wimek@wur.nl), indicating that you want to register for a MSc course as part of your TSP;
  2. WIMEK will send you a WUR Student Registration form with pre-filled information;
  3. fill in the missing information in the WUR Student Registration form, print the document and sign at the bottom;
  4. send a scan of the signed document to wimek@wur.nl.

Step 2: Receive proof of enrolment

Within a couple of days you will receive your proof of enrolment from the Student Service Centre (SSC) by post in the form of a plasticized cardboard card at the address you filled in on the form. If you did not receive your proof of enrolment within 6 working days, please contact ssc@wur.nl.

Step 3: Access to Brightspace

Once your proof of enrolment is processed by SSC you can obtain access to the Learning Management System Brightspace. It will take a day before you can take this last step.

PhD candidates at Wageningen University do not automatically get access to Brightspace. If you teach or take a course this access is strongly recommended. For entering Brightspace and more information look at: https://brightspace.wur.nl and https://wur-student.screenstepslive.com/m/86752.
