Track courses

Students follow the programme in which they started. So students who started in February 2012 still follow that programme eventhough there are some changes in the new curriculum. This implies that if a certain course was a track when you started the programme and this course is no longer considered a track course in the current e-prospectus you can still use this as a track course.

New names

State of the Art-Public Institutions -> new name Public Institutions
State of the Art-Public Policy -> new name Public Policy
State of the Art-Public Management -> new name Public Management
State of the Art-Public Values -> new name Public Values

USIS & BlackBoard

uSIS

Through uSIS you will be able to:

  • Access your examination results
  • Register for examinations (if applicable) and cancel registrations.
  • Register for seminars and cancel registrations.
  • Change your study address.

uSIS

When to register in uSIS?

Students are required to register for each course and each examination separately. This is possible from four weeks up to ten days before the start of the course or the date of the examination.
If you for what ever reason cannot register for a course or exam, please send an email to onderwijsbsk@fsw.leidenuniv.nl and ask the staff members to register you and do this BEFORE THE DEADLINE. Please mention your student number!

BlackBoard

All students have access to the course materials that are posted on the Blackboard system, an e-learning tool for online learning and instruction. Blackboard facilitates the exchange of messages and documents between students and lecturers and among students. You can log in using your ULCN account, which consists of a username and a password.
Go to blackboard and then to ‘courses’. You need to enrol. It is important to check your courses on this site on a regular basis, since most of the information (literature, sheets, assignments, changes in the schedule) will be posted on Blackboard. Please note that you cannot register for a course through Blackboard. Registration for courses is only possible via uSIS (see above)!

When to enrol in Blackboard? When is the Blackboardpage opened?

Since Blackboard is not used as a means of official registration for courses, the co-ordinator of the course can decide whether he or she wishes to make use of Blackboard and when the relevant page will be made available to the students. If the students wants to know whether or not the co-ordinator intends to use blackboard, the student can best contact the co-ordinator.

I registered via USIS. Why does this not show up in Blackboard?

These to systems are not linked to each other. So if you want to use Blackboard, you need to enroll!

The ULCN account

The ULCN account gives you access to all the necessary IT facilities of Leiden University until you have completed your programme. Together with the account, you are automatically assigned an e-mail box (uMail box).
