Without alternative courses


If only module student timetables is available, the selected courses of a studentmust already be determined, i.e. it is not possible to enter alternative courses since it is only possible to enter whether a certain course has been chosen or not. This procedure was described in chapter Course-student-overview in section Students timetables .


With alternative courses


However, in many cases students can choose between several alternative courses. If the decision on one of theses courses has not been made by the student or the course scheduler, the actual selection of a parallel course will then be made during course optimisation.


In this case, the application must be explicitly told which courses are actually the possible alternatives for a specific course option. Chapter student-course-choicedescribes how course options with alternative courses can be entered.
