2. Click on "Emploi du temps étudiant", and choose the year "Planning 2023-2024"

3. In the menu "liste des ressources" (on the left), click on the arrow next to "Etudiants".

4. Click on the faculty and then the diploma of the course you are looking for.

5. Select the level (L1, L2, L3, M1, M2)

6. You now have the time and place of your course.
