You register for elective courses and projects yourself

You must register for projects (including your bachelor project and thesis), electives and Summer University courses yourself. If you are studying according to a special study plan, you must register for the mandatory courses as well. 

Cancel a registration for a mandatory course

You can only cancel an administrative registration if you want to exchange it for a mandatory course that you have not passed on a previous semester. In this case, you must write an email to Student Affairs and Programmes and state which course you want to cancel and which one you want to register for. 

The deadline is Sunday in week 6 and 36 for spring and autumn semesters respectively. You must meet the Registration requirement at all times.

Elective courses

Your registration for courses is only a wish. After the registration deadline, Student Affairs and Programmes allocates course seats, and approximately two weeks after the registration deadline, you can see the result of the seat allocation in My Study Activities.

How to register

You register in My Study Activities.

First and second priorities
The number of courses that you give first priority indicates the number of courses you want to register for, therefore if you need to register for two courses, you should give both courses first priority.

Your choice of second priority course will only be taken into consideration, if you are not awarded a seat in the course(s) that you have given first priority.

During the period for changing registrations in the beginning of the semester, you cannot prioritise registrations.

Please be aware
If your registration gets rejected when registering, do not panic. SAP will look at all rejected registrations before allocating the course seats. Often it is just the system being tricky and we correct it. 

You do not need to notify SAP!

What courses can you sign up for?

In each registration period, you can see a list of the courses available for your registration on the registration form in My Study Activities.

Remember to check if the courses you sign up for are scheduled to run at the same time. In the weeks up until the registration opens, a list of approved courses will be shared for each programme with the courses available to choose from.

Please be aware
If you are choosing electives approved for you, but from a different study programme, the course can require specific knowledge you might not have. 

The courses marked green (if any) are the courses facilitated by your own Study Programme. These should fit in with your acquired knowledge and skills, but do remember to check up on the prerequisites.

Also note that:

  • Some courses have overlapping content, to the extent that you are only allowed to take one of them.
  • The course manager may expect that students have certain academic qualifications from the onset of the course.
    You can see these requirements under "Formal prerequisites" in the course description in the course base.

You are responsible for ensuring that you meet the prerequisites for a course.

Summer University

You register for all Summer University courses yourself between December 1 and December 10. If there are seats available, you might also be able to register June 1 - June 10. Read more about Summer University at ITU.


How to register

You register in My Study Activities.

When you register for a project you are asked to choose between 3 different project codes. If you have not registered for a project before you choose number 1. If you have registered for a project earlier on in while on your current degree, you choose number 2. If this is your third time, you choose number 3.

If you are registering for a group project, only one member of the group has to make the registration and then add the other group member(s) before finalising the registration.

Your registration for a project generates a project agreement in the project base that you must fill in. You can find the project base at My ITU. Learn more about getting started with a project here.


You should already have been contacted by your Programme Coordinator or SAP if the course is no longer offered. If this is not the case, please send an email to to clarify your situation. Use your ITU-mail, and include:

  • that it concerns registration for an exam in a course that has been discontinued
  • which course it is
  • in what term you attended the exam the first time(s).

As a rule, you will get the opportunity to complete the course in the first-coming exam period after the course has been cancelled. However, this may vary from course to course and under certain circumstances, other timeframes may also apply.


Up to four students can work together on a thesis and five students in other projects. If you want to register as a group, the first group member must add the other group members during the registration.

Hereafter, the other participants must sign up for the same project activity in My Study Activities.

No. Registration for an exam requires that you register for the course in the registration period. This also means that have to submit mandatory assignments again, and that your exam will be based on the newest curriculum for the course.

You will get an email from Student Affairs and Programmes telling you how to proceed.

Yes, you can. For this you need a pre-approval of credit transfer from the IT University. Apart from this, you have to follow the admission guidelines for guest students at the specific university.
