    Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      • Login as a teacher
      • Create a course
      • Configure self enrolment in the course with a time frame starting in the future (respectively ending in the past)
      • Login as a student
      • Try to enrol into the course

      Actual result:

      • The user is not able to enrol as expected, but sees a rather ambiguous error message saying "Enrolment is disabled or inactive"

      Expected result:

      • The user is not able to enrol and is informed about the real reason with a error message saying "You cannot enrol yet, enrolment starts on [date]" respectively "You cannot enrol yet, enrolment has ended on [date]".
