Getting Started

KSL/ILIAS

KSL/ILIAS

Here we want to give you a quick overview on KSL and ILIAS if you are new to these systems. You should have recieved the necessary login credentials when you enrolled.

KSL/CTS

The CTS (Core Teaching System) is the University of Bern course catalog). It has the following main usages:

  • Detailed Course List
  • Registration for all courses and exams
  • Overview over your personal studies (ECTS, Grades, Programme)

A detailed manual can be found here (parts in german). For a quick start we suggest watching this video or asking a fellow student from Bern.

ILIAS

Ilias is the platform where you can find course materials, hand in homework, and find your personal schedule. When you register for a course in KSL you will automatically be added to the corresponding group in ILIAS. Note: Not all institutes use ILIAS. For example the Climate and Environmental Physics group publishes all of their course materials on their own website!
