Course registration

You register for courses in OSIRIS. You can only do so during a registration period. Every block has a fixed registration period and a few change days on which you can register for courses that still have space available.

Registration periods 2018-2019
Block 1 and 2 (Semester I)

28 May - 24 June 2018

Block 3 and 4 (Semester II)

29 October - 25 November 2018

Change-of-enrolment days

Shortly before the start of each block the so-called change-of-enrolment days take place. These are designated days just prior to the start of every block. From 9 am on these days, you can register for courses that still have places available. Make sure you are on time: many courses have only a limited number of places.

We will publish a list of courses that are still open for registration a week in advance.

Change-of-enrolment days 2018-2019

De-registration for courses

If you decide you do not want to take a course after all, you de-register via OSIRIS. This can be done during the change days prior to the block in which the course is given; after that it is no longer possible and an 'ND' (did not attend) will appear in your file.

Schedules

You can find your personal schedules in MyTimetable. The CoursePlanner can help you plan your academic career.

Time slot model

The time slot model

When registering for courses you must select courses from different time slots to prevent having to take lectures, tutorials or exams at the same time. The time slots allow you to make up your own schedule. The picture on the right shows the week's division in different time slots.

How to use time slots when registering for courses?

  • You will find the most recent available courses, registration codes and matching time slots in OSIRIS
  • If a course is indicated by a combination of letters (for instance C/D), then the course is in both slots and you have to make sure that your other courses are in the other slots (so A and/or B). Not all the hours of the time slots are used for teaching.
  • In the OSIRIS registration screen you will see in which time slots the course is available (A, B, C, D of E, or a combination of these).
  • Course registration in identical time slots may lead to overlap in teaching and/or testing. So make sure to register for courses that do not overlap.
Time slot model exams

The exam time slot model

If an exam is scheduled outside the regular course schedule, it can be scheduled according to the exam time slot model. These times are different from the course times.
