Enrollment Procedure for Courses, Examinations and Resits
PLEASE NOTE: The Faculty of Social Sciences' course regulations differ from the Faculty of Science course regulations!
Enrollment in (and possible withdrawal from) courses and examinations should be done through Osiris.
For Faculty of Social Science courses:
Enrollment through Osiris is compulsory for all courses, practicals and tutorials and can be done for the whole semester at once. If a course's tutorial is not listed in Osiris then the information can be found in Brightspace. When you are enrolled in a course, you are automatically registered to sit the 1st chance examination. Please note: Participation in the examination is only possible if the student meets the requirements as set out in the EER. Students who do not meet these requirements will have their examination registration withdrawn. In that case, registration for the examination can only be organised through the Student Information Point (STIP) and by means of a written permission from the examination board (firstname.lastname@example.org). This can be done up to five working days before the course's examination takes place.
You can enroll in a course up to two weeks after it has commenced. If you're only going to take the examination, you must still be enrolled in the course in order to gain access to the course's Brightspace information.
Withdrawal from examinations and courses is compulsory where a student has already enrolled but does not plan to participate. Any student who failed to withdraw will be awarded an examination mark of 0.
Resits: Students who wish to resit an examination must enroll separately via Osiris. Do so immediately after you have received an insufficient grade! Students may not sit an examination more than twice for the same course. Any student who wishes to resit the examination a third time may only do so once permission has been granted by the Examination Board (email@example.com). It is up to the discretion of the course coordinator whether a course makes a third chance available.
For CIRRUS based exams, it is impossible to register after the formal registration period has passed (5 working days!). It is needless to file a request with the examination board as for logistical reasons, this is just impossible.
For Faculty of Science courses: Enrollment is possible through Osiris up to five working days before the commencement of the course. Separate enrollment is necessary for each examination up to five working days before the examination takes place. Enrollment for an examination counts as participation, unless you withdraw before the examination date. Students may not sit an examination more than twice for the same course. Any student who wishes to resit the examination a third time may only do so once permission has been granted by the Examination Board. For more information look here.
