The pivotal point for your exam and lecture registration is the planner of studies with module plan. You find it under the menu item My studies.

If you are studying more than one subject, you first have to choose one of them. Afterwards the structure of the chosen subject is shown to you, in which you can find all lectures and exams that are offered within the previously chosen subject.

Please change the study programme semester to "All" on top so that all available courses and modules are shown.

The planner of studies itself consists of all the modules of your study programme with the lectures and exams that are offered within each module beneath. Lectures can always be identified by the blue book ZEuS icon VVZ VA.png, while exams and achievements are identified by a yellow star ZEuS icon Prüfung.png.

If there are already dates planned for a specific course in the selected semester, you can view them by clicking „+“ infront of the course. If you do not see a „+“, but only a dot, this means that no dates have been planned yet for this course.

You want to get more details about a course? Then you either click the blue underlined title or the little magnifying glass to open the detailed view of the course. Here you can see details like the registration period, the type of course, and its contents.

Briefly explained

... to read further information

For the exam registration your planner of studies with module plan is always your starting point. In the structure of your subject you look for the exam you want to take in the module that you want to have it recognized in. To view all available exams, please make sure that you have the study programme semester set to „All“.

If you cannot find an exam in the desired module, it may be that you have to activate it there first. To do so, please click the red and green arrows ZEuS icon mehrfachZuord.png with the respective title of the exam. The structure will then reload. If you open the module again, the exam should be displayed at the appropriate place.

Using the „Register“ Datei:ZEuS_icon_Anmelden.png button, either directly behind the exam or within the detailed view of the exam, you are starting the registration process. First, some important information is shown, which you should accept after reading it carefully. After clicking „OK“ you can choose again where you want the exam – or later the achievement - to be accredited. In the next step you can choose your desired exam date, given that there are more than one dates planned.

After clicking „OK“ again, ZEuS will ask you for a TAN number. Please note that you cannot use any TAN, but only the TAN ZEuS is specifially asking for, for example the TAN with the consecutive number 10. As soon as you put in the correct TAN and confirm your entry, you are successfully registered or admitted to the exam!

Please always contol your exam registrations again in order not to miss any. You can do so under My studies → My registrations. If an exam or lecture is listed here with the status „Admitted“, you are successfully registered.


Generating a TAN list

Briefly shown
Watch a video about this:


Briefly explained

... to read further information

To be able to register for exams and lectures, you always need a current TAN list. With the data control sheet, which you will receive by postal mail after your enrollment, you also receive two inital TANs that you can use to generate your first TAN list.

To do so, please go to My studies → Student service and open the Reports tab On the right, under „Actions“, you find the link to generate your TAN list. It is important that you have your inital TANs close by before clicking the link, as it becomes invalid 20 minutes after first clicking it.

In the next overlay you now have to put in one of your two initial TANs. Please note that ZEuS always asks for a specific TAN, so you cannot randomly choose one of the two. After you put in the requested TAN and confirmed with „OK“, the link to your TAN list is shown. Please make sure to download your list immediately, as this link becomes invalid after 20 minutes as well. It is not possible to download your TAN list at a later point again, thus you should save it on your computer or print it out.

If you encounter any problems generating your TAN list, please contact zeus-support@uni-konstanz.de specifiying your student number.
