If you have registered but choose to skip the course, this must be notified within three weeks from the start of the semester in order to register "early interruption", otherwise you cannot apply for the course again. Report this yourself in the Student Portal. If the interruption occurs after 3 weeks from the start of the semester, the course will not be searchable again.
