How can I enrol?

For WUR online courses, you can enroll via OSIRIS, which leads you to a Brightspace environment with all info to get you started. For external courses, you can enrol by filling in the application form. Do keep the following in mind:

  • Make sure that you know what is expected from you (workload, required prior knowledge, assessment) and that you are committed to the course.
  • The online course has to be approved by the Examination board in order to receive credits for it, so do contact your study adviser before you register for the course.
  • Credits can only be obtained on completion of the online course and on successful final assessment.
  • The number of places available for each of the online courses is limited.

Courses offered by Wageningen University & Research can be followed at any time of the year. Please be aware that you have to register for these courses via OSIRIS and registration is only possible in the registration periods as displayed in the agenda. In case this causes problems for you, please get in touch with us.
