    The faculty will evaluate your request and will contact you in case of any issues with the chosen courses.

    Step 3 - Sign the online contract

    When you get permission to register, you will receive a link to the Student SelfService via email. You can then sign your enrolment contract online.

    • Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is currently not possible to enroll person on our campus. Your enrolment will be finalised online.

    No transcript of records

    If you are enrolled with an exam contract you will not receive a transcript of records. You can only consult your grades in the Student Selfservice.

    You can request a credit certificate (this is a written proof of taking a positive exam). You can address your request for this per email to the faculty that offers the course.

    Re-enrolling is not possible

    Re-enrolling for an exam contract is not possible. For an exam contract you must request permission again every academic year.

    Once you have the permission you can apply online via the Student Selfservice.
