How to enrol a student in a course - via course search?

This manual describes how to add an individual student or multiple students at the same time to a list of participants. Furthermore, it is described how to enrol students who want to take more than 15 ECTS in a period

Usually students register for a course themselves, but sometimes they don't, or they cannot enrol themselves as for some courses this is not possible (e.g. BSc thesis).

  • What to do if the registration deadline has already been passed: only after approval from the course coordinator, the secretariat (or a course coordinator with Osiris Basic rights) can still enrol a student who has not registered. The advantage is that the student will then automatically have access to the Brightspace environment of this course and ANS (in case of digital exams).
  • What to do if the student wants to take more than 15 ECTS of courses in a period: students can enrol themselves for a maximum of 15 ECTS and can request for enrolment of another course! If a student requests enrolment, provided it is done before the deadline for course registration, this request MUST be honoured!!!

The Education and Examination Regulations 2023-2024 clearly states that students should always be allowed by the course coordinator to enrol for the course. The coordinator should not refuse such a request. Of course, this only applies when the request was done prior to the course registration deadline for that period.
