Registration for courses

Registering for internationalisation electives and elective courses

 

You will not be registered automatically for elective courses and other elective elements such as internationalisation electives and profile courses. You must therefore register/indicate your priorities in the Student Self-Service system (STADS) during the registration period.

When you register for an elective course, you will be registered automatically for the corresponding exam as well.

After the registration deadline, your registration is binding. You will no longer be able to withdraw from or change your elective course.

If you do not meet the registration deadline, you must contact Study Centre Arts and apply for registration for the course after the normal deadline. Please note that in this case it is only possible to be registered for courses that still have available places.

Registering for profile courses, project placements and field studies

If you are planning to do a field study or project placement, you must register in the Student Self-Service system (STADS). This applies even if you have not obtained a final agreement with a host organisation or signed a project placement agreement.

You must register during the registration period stated above.

After the deadline, your registration is binding.

If you have registered for a field study or project placement in the coming semester but fail to obtain an agreement, you can apply for registration for the alternative courses specified in your academic regulations for the semester in question after the normal deadline.

Please note that the number of courses offered may be limited as you can only register for courses with vacant places.

Read more on the page about project placements.

Applying for special examination conditions

If you are applying for dispensation in connection with the upcoming examination period, please note that the Arts Studies Administration has a processing time of up to eight weeks (July not included). So we recommend that you apply well in advance – preferably in March and October, respectively.
