Course registrations

When the study period/semester begins you need to register on your courses. Use the service "Register on course" on My startpage to register when the registration period is open. When you are registered on your courses, you will get access to the course homepages/Canvas and can sign-up for the exams.

Re-registration on course

To re-register for a course you have not yet completed, use the service Re-registration on course on My Start Page. If you are only going to take an exam and this is still possible, with the same course code as before, you should not re-register for the course but only register for the exam. If the course room is locked and you need access, please contact the examiner who will add you to Canvas. Once you have re-registered you will get access to the course homepage/Canvas.

Tuition fee-paying students are re-registered on their courses by the Tuition Fees Office

Exchange students who wish to add courses to their study plan should consult their exchange coordinator.

I want to drop a course

You can make an interruption on a course by using the service early interruption of a course​​, within three weeks after the course start. You can't make an interruption if you have a final grade or approved test score on the course this semester.

Exchange students should contact their exchange coordinator within two weeks of the start of the study period.
