*Workgroups: Our Student Service Centre will enroll you in all preapproved psychology courses and tests and allocate you to a workgroup after admission. It is therefore not possible to see your work group placement in My Timetable before registration. You can find your workgroup numbers after registration by signing into your personalized course schedule in uSis - see below.

**Tests: MyTimetable will list several test data per course which are not all relevant for exchange students. For first attempt exams choose exams listed with code ‘1’. The second attempt (resit) exams are listed under code 901.

In uSis

At the end of August (for semester 1) or January (for semester 2) it will be possible to view a personal course schedule in uSis showing your lecture and workgroup schedule. In uSis, workgroups (seminars) are indicated with a W or WGR, Lectures are indicated with LEC and exams are marked with TEN.

Course clash?

Keep in mind when selecting your courses that you may need to reshuffle a little once the course schedules are available to avoid course clashes. If you are taking courses from other faculties as well, make sure to check if any of the courses and/or exams in your programme overlap. Please contact your Exchange Coordinator as soon as possible in case you encounter a course clash.

Leids kwartiertje

All lectures have a so called 'Leids kwartiertje': an academic quarter. This is the quarter-hour (15 minute) difference between the defined start time for a lecture or lesson in the timetable and the actual starting time. This means that lessons start 15 minutes late to give students the opportunity to walk (or bike) from one building to another between classes.
