Pre- and corequisites

In order to register for some courses you need to meet certain enrolment requirements first. These requirements can be both pre- and corequisites.

A prerequisite is a course of which you have shown that you have mastered the competences attributed to it before being able to enroll for a subsequent course.

A corequisite is a course that, if you have not passed it yet, you must enroll for together with a subsequent course.
