Once you complete the course you are attending, you may ask for a Certificate of Attendance from Registration and Student Services (Massalias 22, ground floor).

4. May I transfer to another course (different time and/or day) at the same level?

You may be transferred to another course (different time or/and day) at the same level, provided that registered students do not exceed the maximum number of students allowed per class.
