How do I register for a course?

Updated on

Registration for a course can be done by yourself in OSIRIS. In some cases, the educational administration of your study programme will register you for courses. There are certain conditions attached to the application, such as entrance requirements, pre-registration or waiting lists. This is usually stated in the course description. Registration for courses takes place in a certain period of time. This period differs per faculty, programme or type of course. The registration period is mentioned for each course. It is also possible to filter on courses that are open for registration.

Please note: as of 20 May 2020, exchange students can no longer register for courses themselves. Course registration will be done for them on the basis of their learning agreement. Any questions this may cause can to be addressed to their faculty contact person.
