Each semester, you are required to register for courses during the official registration period. When you register for a course, you are automatically registered for the exams and the Canvas page for that course.
Information on this site is not for exchange students. They should follow the course registration procedure for exchange students.
Make sure to register during the official registration period, because only then will you be guaranteed a place in your compulsory courses. The registration periods for the Bachelor's and Master’s courses offered in the 2019-2020 academic year are:
|Semester||Course registration opens||Course registration closes|
|1||Tuesday, 11 June 2019||Tuesday, 25 June 2019|
