How do we assign courses?

If there are more applicants than places, courses are assigned in random order according to the applicants course priorities.

There is no waiting list for full courses. Even if someone withdraws from the course, it will not necessarily open a place, as we overbook all courses a little to make sure, we do not have empty places once the classes start.

Switching courses

After the application round is over, there will be very limited possibilities to change courses. We will overbook all courses in relation to the number of places in each course. So even if someone else withdraws, this will not necessarily leave a place to be filled.

Course changes and cancellations

The summer course offer is subject to student interest and enrolment. Due to unforeseen circumstances there might be changes to the course offer which can happen up until the beginning of the programme. Changes will be communicated without delay.

Course withdrawal

If you want to withdraw from a course, you need to do so before the withdrawal deadline. When and how you withdraw, depends on your student category:
