To see the current semester's range of elective courses, you can either find your academic regulations and the study programme diagram here and then click on to the course catalogue (by clicking on the elective course in the study diagram). You can also use the search function in the course catalogue. In both counts, you must delimit your search so that you can see the courses for the relevant semester.

Registering for 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.

Registering for courses if you have an advance approval for courses at another programme

If you have gotten an advance approval of a course/module outside of your degree programme it is considered to be a registration for teaching and exams. Consequently, you cannot apply for a course/module on your degree programme at the same time.

However, if you need to follow one or more courses at another programme or another university, you should be aware of the registration procedure and deadlines here.
