Finalizing your course registration
Registration for courses happens at the moment of application for exchange, in one and the same online application form. Registering for courses at this stage means requesting a preliminary permission/ confirmation. Being admitted to exchange does not automatically mean that your choice of courses is confirmed.
Within several weeks’ time after the deadline of application you will receive a reaction to your course choice and an instruction on how to proceed. It can turn out that you wish to make some changes to your initial course selection or you are asked to make adjustments by us. Please react in a timely manner and consult your exchange coordinator at your home university about your choices. We strongly recommend that you consider your choices seriously, by reading course descriptions attentively.
Once you receive a reaction to your course registration from the International Office, your registration is sent off to the Office of Student and Educational Affairs (OSEA) and processed. In most cases it means that you are registered for the course. If not, you will hear from OSEA about it up until one week before the beginning of the course.
In anticipation of the questions you may have regarding your final course registration, we have highlighted some of the most important points below.
Changing or dropping courses
Reaction by email to preliminary confirmation:
Adjustments to the initial course choice in the view of timetables
More than one course per block
It is allowed to choose more than one course per block, but there are consequences:
|Some courses you have chosen may no longer be available due to changes in the curriculum or availability of courses. Should this be the case, we will inform you about it. You can always look for alternatives in the adjustment periods and inform us about the changes.|
If you have chosen a psychology course of a level higher than bachelor 1, your file will be forwarded to the department of Psychology for approval of your eligibility to follow the course(s).
The rule of the thumb is that not being a psychology major you are probably not eligible to follow a 2nd/3rd year psychology course. You will receive a separate message confirming your eligibility or denying you access to the course.
