Sisu will permanently replace Oodi as of 9 August 2021

Sisu is the new core information system for teaching and studies. Students can already use some of its functionalities such as creating a personal study plan (HOPS), browsing available courses and applying for graduation.

Sisu will will be fully deployed in August 2021. Oodi will be archived at the same time. For this reason, both systems will be momentarily out of use. The development of Sisu will continue after its deployment, and new features will become available in the future.
