Registering for courses and examinations

As a student, you are personally responsible for ensuring that you are enrolled in the courses you wish to take. You can register for courses through the student Self service portal

Registration for courses is only about the courses. You should not worry about type of examination and exam registration now. You must decide on type of examination when registering for examinations in the spring.  

If you are doing a programme element (for example an internship) that does not involve classroom teaching, you must still register for the examination as usual via Self service during the examination check period.  

Deadlines for registration for classes and examination check

  • 1 - 10 May
  • 1 - 10 November

The deadlines do not count for thesis registration.

Note: Professional Master's degree students and students of the Danish as a second language for adults are not responsible for registering for courses.

Late enrollment or change in enrollment               

The approval and signature of your director of studies is required if you, due to illness or other, enroll after the official end of the enrollment period or if you wish to change in your enrollment.

Read about applying for an extemption.



If your subjects are divided into classes, you will be put on a class. If you need to change class you can do so according to the guidelines below.

In the period from 1 to 15 September and 1 February to 15 you can change class, if there is room in the relevant class. You request for change of class by sending an email to Study Center Arts (with your name, student registration number and the class which should be prey).  "Space in the class" will be assessed in relation to the maximum size, which degree programme director or a lecturer has announced prior to the start of the module.

If you want to change class of student teacher it should be agreed with the student teacher in question.

Note: Teaching at Department of Aesthetics and Communication is not public. If you want to follow a course without being registered, you must obtain permission from the relevant course lecturer. This must be done prior to the teaching.
