The Ultimate Bestest Guide to Course Enrollment

Disclaimer: this is the information we found to our best knowledge. If you see anything which isn’t correct, let us know! We are not liable for any fuckery, so don’t come crying to us when you messed up.

This is a guide on how to enroll for your courses. Because the right webpages might be hard to find. Or you are just lazy. Long enough introduction, don’t you think? Let’s go!

 

ProgressWWW

Progress is the website where you sign up for courses, groups and (re-)exams. Unless mentioned otherwise, that’s where you sign up for your stuff. We assume you can do that part. We will skip the tutorial on signing up. Here’s the link. Figure it out.

You might find traumatised first year students, frozen body parts, or perhaps a coffee machine. In contrast, we didn’t find anything on course registration.
