Course and exam enrolment

You can enrol via uSis for lectures, seminars, exams, papers, assignments and presentations. Enrolment procedures for certain activities can vary from programme to programme. In some cases you may have to enrol via the education administration office instead.

If you have questions about uSis please consult the FAQ first. 

Questions should be addressed to your education administration office

Mandatory enrollment for courses. No registration required for exams.

All students in the Faculty of Humanities are obliged to register for all lectures, tutorials and seminars. You use e uSis to register. Registration is obligatory for all compulsory components as well as for study activities taken as part of the optional programme (minor). You do not need to register for the bachelor and master's theses, as these are registered through the administration.

  • You can register through uSis from July 1 prior to the first meeting of your first semester's lecture or tutorial. It is important that you register in time!
  • For more information, see the manual

Note that first-year, full-time bachelor students are usually registered by their department for courses starting in September. However, they too should check in time whether they have been registered.

Registering for lectures and tutorials

For lectures and tutorials you must also register in time through uSis. Some tutorials have a limited intake and may be full very quickly. If you are not registered for a course, you will not be allowed to sit the final exams for that course.

  • Semester 1: You can register for a lecture or tutorial from July 1 prior to the first meeting until Friday of the first week of class.
  • Semester 2: You can register for a 2nd-semester lecture or tutorial from December 1 prior to the first meeting until Friday of the first  week of class.

After that it is no longer possible to register yourself through uSis. If you are late for registration for lectures and tutorials, then you will need the lecturer's permission to register through the student administration for lectures, through the study coordinator for tutorials, and through the Student Information Desk for core-curriculum courses.

Registration for testing is not required. The administration enrolls you for the examination of each course. The registration will be done in the first two weeks of October and for the second semester courses in the first two weeks of March. If you are enrolled and do not participate in the exam, you are requested to report this to the administration of the programme or at the information desk in the Lipsius.
