Before you register for courses on Sisu

There are some things you should consider before registering for courses on Sisu, such as registration periods and requirements.

Registration periods

  • If a limited number of participants will be admitted to a course implementation, the registration period usually ends 7 days before the teaching period begins.
  • If the number of participants is not limited, the registration period usually ends 7 days after the teaching period has begun.

You need to register separately for examinations that are not included in the registration for the course. The registration period ends 7 days before the examination.

To see the registration period of a course implementation, see the course information sheet:

  1. Go to the ‘Completion methods’ tab.
  2. In the ‘Teaching’ section, open the course implementation in question.
  3. Go to the ‘Registration’ tab.

Basic requirements for registration

At Aalto University, the basic requirements for registration for courses include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • You have a valid right to study at Aalto University.
  • You have enrolled as an attending student.
  • You have added the course for which you are registering to your primary study plan, and this study plan matches your right to study.

To check if you need to meet other requirements before you can register for teaching, see the course information sheet.

  1. Go to the ‘Completion methods’ tab.
  2. In the ‘Teaching’ section, open the course implementation in question.
  3. Go to the ‘Registration’ tab.

Number of participants in a course implementation

Number 2112 can appear as number of participants either in

  • Course information sheet > ‘Completion methods’ tab > course implementation in question > ‘Registration’ tab, or
  • Study calendar > course implementation in question > under the ‘Register’ button

Please do not pay attention to this number since it is automatically imported to Sisu and does not correlate with the actual maximum participant number. If you want to know the actual maximum of participants, please check it from each teaching group in the study calendar.

Changing the version of a course

  1. In the ‘Structure of studies’ section, click on the code of the course whose version you want to change.
  2. Under the course information sheet title, click on the text ‘Version zzzz-yyyy’.
  3. In the drop-down list that opens, select the ongoing academic year.
  4. A notification banner appears at the top of the page. Click on the text ‘Use this version’.

This banner sometimes hides behind other blue banners. For example, if you see a notification of a confirmed minor, close this notification by clicking on the X on the right.

Further instructions on changing the version of a minor, a substituting course, or master’s-level studies are available:Changing versions in your study plan
