Course schedules and class groups

As a student you are always assigned a class group. For each class group a course schedule has been drawn up in which the lessons of compulsory subjects do not overlap. Only after you have entered your individual study programme (ISP) can you consult your personal schedule. You will find an answer to the most frequently asked questions about course schedules below.

Each programme is divided into programme stages of about 60 credits. E.g. a bachelor degree of 180 credits is divided into 3 programme stages of 60 credits. They are referred to as programme stage 1, programme stage 2 and programme stage 3.

Students register for the programme stage in which they follow most of their credits. Thus, your schedule is already largely fixed. Students determine their programme stage when they (re)register.

Only if you were never registered at a university college or university in Flanders before, you will automatically be registered in the first stage of the programme. It is possible to have your programme stage adapted by Student Administrative Services Centre to the programme stage in which you follow most of your credits.

A student may follow a Standard Learning Path or a Flexible Learning Path.

The student follows a Standard Learning Path if he includes courses from only one programme stage in his individual year programme and while doing this, follows the rules for constructing a Default Learning Path.

The student follows a Flexible Learning Path if he includes courses from multiple programme stages in his individual year programme and while doing this, follows the rules for constructing a Flexible Learning Path.

Students follow the lessons of compulsory courses within a class group. Such a class group has a code e.g. 1B BM/1A1. For each class group a course schedule has been made in which the lessons of compulsory courses do not overlap. Elective courses  do not overlap with the compulsory courses of the same programme stage.

Upon registration a student is allocated to a class group. There are 2 possible ways to be allocated to a class group:

  1. Automatically upon registration (the number of available groups is filled proportionally).
  2. Individual allocation by the degree programme (the department does allocate students to a group based on specific student requirements). The head of department of the degree programme informs the student of the class group.

Each programme decides how it assigns its groups.

Additional info

Je vraagt je wijziging zo snel mogelijk na de start van het academiejaar aan en zeker vóór de deadline voor het vastleggen van je ISP (15 oktober).

Voor de campussen Brussel, Dilbeek of Schaarbeek

Alleen nieuwe studenten die voor het eerst ingeschreven zijn in een bepaalde opleiding kunnen een aanvraag indienen om van klasgroep te veranderen.

Opgelet: Studenten die een opleiding volgen waarbij de klasgroep individueel wordt toegewezen door de opleiding moeten toelating krijgen van de opleiding om van klasgroep te veranderen!
Voor de opleiding Bachelor in de ergotherapie, waarbij de klasgroep automatisch wordt toegewezen, is een goedkeuring van het opleidingshoofd noodzakelijk!

Hoe een wijziging van klasgroep aanvragen?

  • Je kan als student enkel via mail een klasgroepwijziging aanvragen bij de dienst Studentenadministratie.

    Campus Brussel: sa@odisee.be
    Campus Schaarbeek: info.schaarbeek@odisee.be
    Campus Dilbeek: onthaal.dilbeek@odisee.be 

  • De titel van je mail is ‘aanvraag klasgroepwijziging’.
    Je vermeldt zeker je naam, studentennummer (r-,s- of m- nummer), de opleiding die je volgt, je huidige klasgroep (terug te vinden in je ISP voor studenten die een opleiding volgen die gebruik maakt van automatische klasgroeptoewijzing) en de klasgroep waaraan je graag zou worden toegewezen.

Denk goed na over je beslissing, een klasgroepwijziging wordt slechts éénmaal toegestaan en je kan ook niet terugkomen op je beslissing!

Voor de campussen Aalst, Gent en Sint-Niklaas

Neem contact op met het opleidingssecretariaat.

For programmes with automatic class group assignment:

After (re)registration and as from 15 September, you can see your class group in your individual study programme (ISP) under 'class/examination group'. You can also consult your personal schedule here by clicking on the clock. This personal schedule is based on the course units that are part of your ISP.

Only if you are a student of a programme within the cluster Education on campus Brussels you will not see your class group in your individual study programme (ISP). You will be informed by the programme which class group you have been assigned to.

For programmes without automatic class group assignment:
The Head of Programme communicates the class group to the student. Only after you have saved your individual study programme (ISP), you can consult your personal schedule by clicking on the clock. This personal schedule is based on the course units that are part of your ISP.

In the online programme guide, you choose your programme and then click on 'schedule' in the top left-hand corner. You will see a list of all available class groups. Now click on your class group.

Students following the bachelor of education: primary education or secondary education in campus Sint-Niklaas or the bachelor of agro- and biotechnology can find their course schedule on the community page of their programme on Toledo.

You can find the schedule for a certain course unit in the online programme guide. First choose the program in the online programme guide and then the course unit and the correponding learning activities. Then click on the clock next to the number of contact hours. A pop-up screen will appear with the schedule for the course unit in question.

Students of campus Sint-Niklaas can find their course schedule on the community page of their programme on Toledo.

When you follow a flexible learning path, you’re taking courses from multiple programmes and you have to register for the programme stages in which you follow most of your credits. Thus, the course schedule of most (compulsory) subjects is fixed. The course units of another programme stage you want to follow, have to be organized around this basic course schedule.

You can contact the learning path coach(es) of your degree programme for more help with the composition of a learning path that suits your personal profile.

Be careful when composing your personal course schedule and take in account the advice that your learning path coach(es) give(s) you. You need to make sure you take the same course with the same class group and the same teacher at all times.
