1. When, where, and how do I register?

There are different registration procedures depending on the language, course level, and time when the course takes place (i.e., while classes are in session or during semester breaks). Here is some important general information: General information on registering for a course and how places are assigned (PDF)

Registration for
Courses that will take place while classes are in session (all languages except German as a foreign language and Japanese) (PDF)
Courses that will take place during semester breaks (French, Hebrew, Italian, Spanish, and Turkish) (PDF)

2. Before you register: Placement tests/Language tests

Have you checked the above charts to see what you need to do to register? Do you have to take a placement or language test? If so, you’ll need the following information to plan your next steps.

  • General Professional Skills (ABV) placement tests: Students with existing knowledge of the relevant language and who are registering for General Professional Skills (ABV) modules must take a placement test 2–3 weeks before the period when classes are in session. For some languages, you need to register in advance.
  • Language and placement tests for prospective students: The tests for prospective students applying for bachelor’s degree programs with specific language requirements can take place as early as 1-2.5 months before the period when classes are in session. You must register for these tests in advance.

Registration dates and appointments for tests will be published here:

5. Registration on Campus Management

Semester break courses:
It is not possible to register for these courses on Campus Management. The Language Center will register the course in the Campus Management system and will enter the results when you have completed the course.

Courses that take place while classes are in session:
If you are assigned a place, you should absolutely register on Campus Management starting in the middle of the second week of classes. This registration must be for the specific course for which you have been assigned a place.
