Course schedule

Your course schedule can be found in MyTimetable (PC) or the MyUU app (smartphone/tablet) two weeks before the courses begin. You have to first add the courses yourself in one of these systems. Make sure you are logged in when you are selecting your schedule. This way, your personalised schedule is saved. As soon as you know what groups you are in, you can add this to your personalised schedule to complete it. See the explanation building abbreviations for more information on the locations.

Please note! Self-study courses that involve individual guidance by a lecturer have no fixed schedule. The practical details on the conduct of the course will be determined in consultation with the lecturer concerned.

Time slots

The time slot model helps you prevent choosing courses of which lectures, seminars or exams overlap. When you register for courses, please make sure to choose courses in one period from different time slots. This way, you can create a feasible schedule. The week is divided into the following time slots:
