Course Schedules

The course schedules of period 1-6 and the resits of the academic year 2023/2024 are been published in the tool TimeEdit. For information about a specific course, scheduled lectures of exams, go to Course schedule / TimeEdit on the right side of this page (Course schedule). Team scheduling has created schedule guidelines including useful links see guidelines for students 2023-2024 or guidelines for students 2024-2025.

Study places for students

It is possible for students to book a study place on campus. Via TimeEdit you can book a study place 24-36 hours in advance. Minimum booking time is 30 minutes, maximum is 3 hours. You can book a total of 8 hours a day divided over maximum 5 bookings. Note: Your reservation is automatically cancelled if the study place is not used for 20 minutes (no show).

Do you want to book a study place in Forum Library?

The study places on the 4th floor of the Library need to be reserved. Only during self-study and exam weeks the study places on the 3rd floor are bookable. The second floor is open acess and therefore not bookable.

Study places are NOT suitable for online exams since places are located in rooms with multiple seats.

What are the advantages of TimeEdit?

You can use TimeEdit to search for course or programme schedules, to filter by relevant groups, to import schedules to your agenda, and to subscribe to updates. You can also save your preferred layout and settings, share links with others, and download schedules.

Does this change the scheduling process for me as a lecturer?

No, it just gives you more options for customising the schedule. You can create separate schedules for groups and easily add information about (excursion) locations. The schedule also includes more information than before and searching for, sharing, and exporting data is much faster. The scheduling team can also use links to discuss scheduling issues with lecturers.

The Search results do not show the course code or course title that I’ve typed in in the Search box. Why not?

In order to avoid textual repetitions TimeEdit shows search results without showing the search term, in this case the course code or course title. This is particularly convenient for tablets or mobile phones, which have a smaller display. By clicking a search result the course code or course title that you typed in will reappear in the results. If your search includes several courses TimeEdit includes the course codes in the information about the various courses, so that you can distinguish between them.
