Study Planning and Sisu Info

Sisu - study information system for students, teachers and staff members
  • On the Sisu study information system, you draft your personal study plan (PSP), sign up for courses, and monitor the progress of your studies.
    • Severe accessibility issues have been found in Sisu. They are recorded in a university-specific accessibility statement. Until the issues in Sisu are resolved, students will be given individual support to overcome Sisu’s accessibility barriers. Students who need accessibility support are kindly asked to contact the guidance and counselling services of their own faculty for assistance in making a personal study plan (PSP) and registering for courses and examinations. 
  • Through the curriculum section of the Student's guide, you can more easily get acquainted with the course catalogue of the entire university. In the curricula, you can filter our course and module offerings in the way you want. Read instructions how to use the curricula
  • Student’s handbook offers you information and guidelines on your studies. The Guide also contains instructions on how to use Sisu.
  • In Intranet you can find widgets which contain information about e.g. courses, exams, course credits and events as well as news of the university community, calendar and notifications from background systems.
