Course enrollment is the process of adding courses you plan to take over the next semester at EBS. Students are obliged to enroll in courses for the upcoming semester based on the course list outlined in their nominal study plan but are welcome to add additional courses or re-take a course to improve their grade. If the student does not follow the nominal study plan, it is called an individual study plan.
Course enrollment takes place in my.ebs.ee and according to the following deadlines:
- Autumn semester – by July 31
- Spring semester – by January 7 (Master’s studies)
by January 15 (Bachelor’s studies)
Enroll in Courses
To browse courses and add them to your shopping cart, go to Course Catalogue. You can search courses by name or code and filter them by study level and form, campus etc.
Click on the course title to see the course overview and learning outcomes. All the possible sessions for the course in the upcoming semester will be listed on the right.
Please make sure you tick the following three criteria when searching for courses:
1) language (Estonian or English);
2) study form (daytime or session-based);
3) campus (Tallinn or Helsinki).
To add a course, click „Add to cart“. Remember to check the timetable to make sure there are no overlaps.
There you can find information about the nanodegrees offered by EBS. A nanodegree is a specialization course of master’s degree studies during which the student completes an academic programme consisting of 15 ECTS. One nanodegree consists of 3-5 courses.
When you click on the nanodegree, you can see the list of courses offered as part of it. Minimum criteria to participate in these courses is already obtained bachelor’s degree.
The shopping cart automatically lists courses for you based on your study group. There might be more courses there
than you are required to take in that semester according to your nominal study plan. For example, you might find courses from all the different specializations in your curriculum or all possible internships
in the list. In that case, you have to keep only the specialization courses and internship relevant to you and remove the rest. Also, if your study group should take electives and optionals, the shopping cart will list all the possible elective and optional courses for the upcoming semester. You will need to choose those of your liking and in the volume stated in your nominal study plan for the upcoming semester and remove the rest from the list.
If your nominal study period is over, you were on academic leave or you are an extern, your shopping cart is empty, and you have to add courses yourself. To remove a course from the shopping cart, click on the “Remove” option behind the course title. You can always restore the initial course list by clicking on the respective option in the shopping cart.
To add courses, go to Course Catalogue.
