Students who fail to obtain a credit for the course are required to repeat the courses within the framework of the university-wide courses after completing the formalities resulting from the Rules of Studies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I learn which category of university-wide courses should I choose my course from?
Each student should check their plan of study prior to enrolling in the university-wide variable courses with regard to the type of course they are to take in a given semester, whether they are to take a course from a group of humanities, social studies, or whether they are to take a course in a foreign modern language. If there is no indication as to what course to choose, the student can choose any.  In the case of doubts, every student should contact the coordinator of study programmes in order to clarify these doubts.

I haven't registered for any university-wide course, what should I do now?
In the case of failure to register for the university-wide course in the first round of electronic registration, the student may turn to one of the coordinators of the university-wide courses in order to find a vacancy in the university-wide courses. The list of coordinators is provided below. Coordinators may only sign in/out students in/out of groups within the courses run by their units.
Such a person may also approach the teacher and ask if he or she can attend the course. The teacher, if he or she agrees, should add the student to his or her list and provide the data to the coordinator for the data to be uploaded to the USOS system. The same situation also applies to students who are studying two degree progammes and want to complete two university-wide courses in a given semester. Electronically, the USOSWeb will allow to register for one course.
When do university-wide courses take place?
The university-wide variable courses run on Mondays in the last two blocks of classes, i.e. at 04.30 pm and 06.00 pm (+/-15 min for some courses).
I have registered for the course, but I do not have this information in my USOSWeb account.
This may be the case if the student has registered for a course that does not have the minimum number of students enrolled.  The coordinator will then remove all participants from the course, as it will not take place in a given semester. This can happen after the first round of registration – then the student must choose a different course. It is suggested that students who have enrolled in a course where there are few people should monitor the status of the course on an ongoing basis.
I would like to change the university-wide course during the ongoing semester.
It is not possible to change or resign from the course for which enrolment was made, unless the Dean decides differently at the student’s written request. In the case of the Dean’s positive decision regarding a change or resignation from the course, the coordinator may only enroll the student for another course after removing him/her from the course group that he/she will not be attending through the USOS system. Enrolment can be made not later than two weeks after the commencement of classes in a given semester.
I have registered for the course, but I don't know where and when the first classes will take place.

Information concerning the dates and place of classes should be found in the USOSWeb system for a given course or on the website of the unit which conducts the course on a page with schedules.
