How to register for courses and exams or withdraw - Faculty of Informatics

Course registration


Students are required to register for the courses they wish to attend and intend to take the exams for during the first 6 weeks of the semester.

Course registration is solicited by the Dean’s office and registration is done on the Faculty online teaching platform.

Students registered for a given course are required to take the relevant exam during the ordinary session at the end of the semester in which the course is given. Failure to show up for the exam without due justification will be considered as a failed attempt. 

Once registered for a course, students can decide to leave it and therefore not to take the exam by notifying said decision no later than six weeks from the beginning of the semester.


Exam registration


Even though course registration obliges to take the relevant exams, it is formally required for students to register for exams.

Students can register online for examinations of the Faculty of Informatics in the registration period indicated here at

Access to the platform is through your edu-ID.


The registration form consists of two sections:

  • core courses;
  • elective courses.

The core courses mirror the student’s study plan, while the list of elective courses includes a series of courses (including courses run by the other Faculties) from which (s)he can choose. The lists show only the courses for which an examination is scheduled in the given session.

If a student would like to register for the examination for a course that is not listed, this should be communicated immediately by e-mail to [email protected].

A registration confirmation e-mail will be sent for each examination for which a student has registered: for instance, when registering for seven examinations, the student will receive seven separate e-mails. If the confirmation e-mails have not arrived within 24 hours, the problem should be communicated immediately by e-mail to [email protected].
