Sport Studies - track ISMB

Due to the corona measures, the start of your studies this September will be different than in previous years. We will keep you informed about the latest developments here, including practical information and where you can turn if you have questions.

1. Complete your enrolment

Have you paid your tuition fees yet and made all further steps required to finalise your enrolment? You cannot start your degree programme this September unless you have completed all the required steps. Once a proof of enrolment has been sent to your AUAS email address, you can be sure that your enrolment has been finalised. If you have enrolled for several programmes, please withdraw your other enrolment requests via Studielink.

2. Make sure to prepare properly

Every day’s study begins with MyAUAS ('MijnHvA', the AUAS digital learning platform). Log in with your AUAS ID to find your timetable, info on your courses, your marks and any messages from your lecturers. If a lecturer will be absent, you will be notified via MyAUAS. You will also find an A-Z list of practical information for your programme, including such things as ICT, facilities, regulations and supervision.

Check out the instructional videos.

The course catalogue for your degree programme contains important information about the curriculum: the programme structure, your courses and the options available. The course catalogue is available from 1 July.

The definitive reading list for Sport Studies - track ISMB will be published no later than 1 July on the Athenaeum Bookstore website. You can also order your books on this website.

Software

As a AUAS student you can get Office 365 ProPlus for free. This will give you access to the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook. You can install the software on a maximum of 5 mobile devices and 5 laptops/fixed computers (Windows and Apple). Go to hva.nl/downloadoffice and use your AUAS ID and password to log in.

SURFspot offers great discounts on many other software products and hardware such as laptops and smart phones.  

Laptop

Do you want to make optimal use of the facilities at the AUAS? Then a laptop is very useful. It is also advisable to have a powerbank to charge your laptop so that you do not need to depend on the power points in the Dr. Meurer building.

Every student receives a Student ID card. This card allows you to print, borrow books and pay at vending machines. To apply for your Student ID card, simply upload your passport photo via mijnhvapas.nl. You will need your AUAS ID and password, which you have received by email.

Your card will be sent to your home address if you upload your passport photo before 14 September. If you do this after 14 September, you will receive a message notifying you about when and where you can pick up your card.

If you receive your Student ID card via post, you must activate it at a service desk in one of the AUAS buildings. Please bring a valid identity document with you.

Please note: Do you live outside of the Netherlands? If so, you can pick up your Student ID card at an AUAS service desk. It will not be mailed to your home address.

The academic year commences in August, starting with the Sport Studies day on 27 August. Your first classes will start on Monday 31 August. Group lists will be communicated during the introduction day.

Once you have your group list, you will be able to check your timetable at rooster.hva.nl. You can link your timetable to calendar applications such as Outlook, Google Calendar, iCalendar or the calendar application on your mobile phone. Go to the AUAS academic calendar to find out how the academic year is structured and when the holiday periods are scheduled.

If you have a disability or chronic illness, this might affect your study progress. In many cases, this entitles you to special facilities, such as additional time on tests or a customised chair. Please please contact the student counsellor for your programme about this.

If you have dyslexia, you can request additional time on tests online. You will need your AUAS ID for this. For more information, go to studying with a disability or chronic illness and read the section on dyslexia.
