Course Registration


It is your responsibility to sign up for courses

It is your responsibility to sign up for courses, i.e. classes, assignments and projects, for the coming semester.

You sign up for courses through the Student Self  Service:

  • Between May 20th-30th for the courses in the autumn semester.
  • Between November 20th-30th for courses in the spring semester.

You’ll get an e-mail on your student e-mail , when you’re getting closer to the registration period.

Course registration means exam registration

When you sign up for a course, you are automatically also signed up for the exam.

You cannot cancel your course registration

When you have signed up for a course, you cannot cancel your registration – not even if you have signed up for more than what is recommended.

The same goes for elective courses. However, in some cases you might replace one elective course with another if you do so no later than three weeks into the semester.

If you wish to replace an elective course, please contact Educational Law & Registration through SPOC.

Which courses do I need to sign up for?

As a rule, you (must) sign up for courses/classes for the next semester according to the process model of your programme. Please note, that in case of changes you must follow the latest version of the process model or a course, unless other provisions have been stipulated. Changes will be publicized in the latest version of the curriculum.

Alternative syllabus

If you have been delayed in your course of studies (if e.g. you have exams from earlier semesters that you still haven’t passed or have been ill), it may make sense to sign up for other courses than those recommended by the Process Model. But make sure that your course registration complies with the Active Enrolment Requirements.

If you need to make an alternative plan for your course of study, please note the following:

The Academic Progression
Make sure to check if the academic progression of your course of study has to be taken into consideration (the academic progression is indicated with same colour in the process model). It is also important to check if there are any requirements to your passing certain courses in order for you to proceed to the next semester.

When are the courses available?
Check the list of available courses to see whether they are available in autumn or spring and thereby make it easier for you to plan when to take them.

Should I attend course(s) or only sign up for exams?
Were there exam(s) in an earlier semester that you didn’t pass? It is up to you whether you decide to attend the course(s) again or only attend the exams. If you have failed an exam, it may be a good idea to attend the course again. However, note that since you'll be attending courses on different semesters, classes may be overlapping. Consequently, it is a good idea to think carefully about which courses to attend. It is also important to note that the exam will be based on the current pensum, and that it may change from one semester to the next.

You’ll receive an e-mail on your student e-mail telling you when it is time to register for both courses and exams.

Exemption from requirements - Exceptional circumstances

If exceptional circumstances apply to your situation, and it means that you need to have course or exam registrations cancelled, you may apply for exemption from the requirements. This is referred to as dispensation.
