I wouldn't say "easy" but it certainly isn't impossible.

I had no idea! What is it called?

hey, I'm EUBL too :)
I think you don't need the student number in order to register courses, as there's no " * " next to it.
I am very concerned however with the credits;
The maximum amount of credits per semester is 40 EC
and the compulsory courses for the 1st semester constitute 35 EC.
Which means there's only 5 left for electives.
While I want to take both european contract and free movement of persons which are 15 EC altogether. So I wrote them a letter yesterday and am still expecting a reply. Hopefully they'll say today.
I have to say they haven't been the quickest to reply...

bullok, which courses you take??

my friend told me, take the international law rather than european law, cos International law applicable in Indonesia. while european law good for improving our legal perspectives.

I thought you could only register for courses once you were accepted and had a student number? Or am I mistaken.

Does anyone know what the response timeframe will be?

No, I registered without any student number.
I am in EUBL too!! :) Yeah, only 5 credit for an elective course. I registered only for the compulsory for the first semester, but I changed my mind, i am thinking taking an elective for the 1st semester. Do you think we can change the registration?
I will write them in a couple of minutes to ask...

Please join the facebook group guys.

just one question:
how quickly do they response to your questions guys?
I had to wait close to 3 weeks for my last ones. I'm beginning to think I'm doing my queries in a wrong manner. I send them to als-fdr@uva.nl.

@ miss s. - OK then 5 EC for the first semester what were they thinking when they put the 10 EC European contract law and European moot court there;
I asked them whether I can skip on some of the compulsory, in order to get elective;
let's see what they'll say

:D Ha ha, it depends... Sometimes i get a reply even in the week end, other times i waited a long time. For instance, the last question I made (almost a month ago) has not been replied till now...
I sent a question some minutes ago, Guys let's who will get a reply at first!! :)

Abt the credits I don't know, but i am wondering: are 60 the maximum we can take for a whole year, or the minimum (meaning we could take more)?

60's the minimum
90 (40 + 40 + 10) or 80 (40 + 30 + 10) I think was the maximum
there was a pdf document with regulations that I found on their site, but I've lost it
you guys have a nice weekend
i'm off to the beach :)

Well even though I'm still waiting on a response I decided to register for my courses.

Let's hope they don't get mad at me.

Ok, I changed my registration.
Besides the compulsory courses I took the Contract law (10EC). Which makes 40EC for the first semester!

Bye!

Dear students,

I seems that a lot amongst you think they cannot register for courses because they cannot fill in a studentnumber and password. Please do go to the web page: http://www.student.uva.nl/lawstudents/timetables.cfm and complete the form which is on the top of the page. You do NOT need to fill in your studentnumber or password. Only fields marked with an asterix have to be completed. Registration must be completed before August 1. Failing to register means that you won't be able to attend the classes!!

Please remember, you need to register for both compulsory and elective courses!!

Received an email yesterday containing MVV steps (which I don't need), Academic Timetables, and a Housing form. Seems to me like they've accepted my application. I think. I'm not even sure into which stream I've been put into.

I will basically sort housing out at the eleventh hour - has anyone else decided on private flat hunting? If so, drop me a line. My plan is to arrive as early as I can, stay in a hostel, and try to set myself up as close to the campus as possible for around 300/month. So if anyone's looking for a roommate - holler at your boy.

Hey,

I hope you will be admitted, but you have to know that receiving this forms doesn't mean you are. They will email you to tell whether or not you are admitted (Ireceived the forms before the email).

Concerning the flat hunting: When do you think going to Amatserdam?

@ mccgold & Miss S.
I have the same game plan. Arriving on the 25th and God help me :)
I don't want to ruin things for you mccgold, but so far I've asked many people for prices on housing and all said 300/month is the absolute minimum and it's not that close to the center (where the faculty is). I have set a tight housing budget myself :)
But I'm sure we'll manage. Besides transport is pretty decent in Amsterdam so distances shouldn't be a problem.

@ Miss S.: Oh, okay. I emailed to check on that since it seemed a bit odd to me. Let's hope they don't find my constant stream of questions too annoying. When do they usually confirm enrolment?

@ bullokk: I heard that 300/month was the minimum as well. And like you said, living somewhere like Pijp, Westerpark, Vondelpark, or Noord wouldn't be too bad considering the public transportation choices. Have you had any luck so far finding a private room?

Personally, I think some of us should band together and try to find a whole flat for rent - then simply split the cost. We'd have far more leverage with a landlord if there were 3-4 of us viewing together as opposed to a single student looking for a room. We'd get more choice, too.

I'll submit my housing application today, but I doubt it'll do any good.

two thumbs up for teaming up :)
we have a similar discussion in the facebook group;
besides a room on its own is twice more expensive than a room in a shared flat; I saw quite a few decent 3 room flats on different sites, starting from 1100 eur/month;
I've been sharing room with mates for more than five years, any single room now would seem like a palace to me :)))

Bullock, who are you on the facebook group?

Mcgold you are now in the group. About the email: they emailed me less than ten days after I sent my application. But how it comes you didn't have a reply yet, wasn't the application deadline on 15th may? If I were you, I would call them (cause like I said I am still waiting for a reply to an email I sent on 30th june...).

About the housing, let's continue the discussion in the group!
