Enroll/disenroll from courses in uSis
Use uSis to enroll for courses. When you enroll for a course here, you will automatically get access to the Brightspace-page associated with it.
You can find more information on enrolling/disenrolling here.
If you encounter any issues, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For more information on Brightspace you can view the University’s manuals. For other questions or issues you can contact the Universiteit Leiden helpdesk.
In MyTimetable you can find schedules for all courses and bachelors, so you can put together your personal schedule. Education activities that you have signed up for in uSis will automatically be displayed in your personal calendar. You can connect My Timetable to a calendar app on your phone, and any changes to your schedule will automatically be shown. It’s also possible to receive an email notification in the event of a rescheduling.

Extended examination time
Do you have reason to believe you might need more time during exams or do you need other assistance?
Schedule a meeting with the student dean, Kaiserstraat 63, Leiden. Click this link for more information.
If the student dean agrees you need extra time, a statement will be drafted and sent to your study advisor and/or the Examination Committee, who will have to approve the request. If your request is approved you will receive an email/letter with more information.
In any case you must contact the Educational Office, York-kam Kwok, at least 4 weeks ahead of the examination period, to let us know when you need a laptop/other assistance. If you have put in such a request and decide not to take the examination, you should also let us know. If you are in need of extra time there is no reason to contact us, it will be handled during the exam.
Want to become a student assistent?
If you have completed your propaedeutic year you are eligible to become a student assistant. Twice per year (fall and spring semesters) we send out an email with all the courses for which student assistants are required, and instructions on how to apply.
It is possible you will be tasked with revising coursework, or giving instructions during a practicum. This is decided by the teacher of the course you are assisting.
You are hired from September 1st until January 31st or from February 1st until June 30th (including vacation).
