Please check the schedule generator for any schedule changes. The changes will be marked in red with the message ‘CHANGE’.
Synchronize the schedule with your own calendar
There are two ways to import your schedule into your own calendar. The 1st option will not automatically adjust any schedule changes in your calendar; the 2nd option will.
1. You can use iCal (this is a function of the Schedule Generator which appears after you have selected your courses) to save your timetable as an iCal file which can be imported in your own calendar. This is a snapshot, so schedule changes will not be automatically adjusted.
2. You can copy the iCal-link and save it in your Google calendar. The schedule changes will then be automatically adjusted in your Google calendar.
For more information, please take a look at the manual.
Create your schedule
You can generate a schedule by using one of the options ‘Courses’, ‘Programmes’, or ‘Groups’.
This option only provides for complete schedules per working group for first year LLB students.
- Programmes –
This option allows you to select a programme (and your year) so you can find all (optional) compulsory courses of your programme in that year in the schedule.
- Courses –
This option offers all courses separately. You can create a list of multiple courses by using the button ‘multi-select’.
The options ‘Courses’ and ‘Programmes’ can be combined. By clicking the selected courses and/or programmes, you can click the course units that are applicable to you. This is useful for courses with multiple working groups for instance. Be careful though that sometimes a working group consists of various parts (e.g. part A and part B, where both parts should be taken).

Change of exam dates & two exams scheduled at the same day
Can the Faculty change examination dates?
The Faculty strives to hold all examinations on the date they are scheduled. However, experience has shown that sometimes serious problems arise, not only for our Faculty, but also for other faculties and educational institutions, as to securing acceptable examination rooms on the stated dates due to accumulation of examinations. Therefore, the Faculty must reserve the right to reschedule the examination dates if necessary. Students should therefore be available during the entire examination period considering possible changes.
Two examinations scheduled at the same day
If it appears that the examinations you want to take are scheduled on the same day, you are strongly advised to adjust your study plan (contact your study adviser for this if necessary). Should you still want to take both examinations on the same day, this will be at your own risk.
If compulsory examinations within the same programme are scheduled on the same day at the same time, you can submit a request to schedule the examinations at different times of the day. Such a request will only be considered when submitted it well before the start of the semester by emailing to octa-rechten rug.nl.
