In Sisu, the selection of students who can be admitted to a course is based on the prerequisites of the course, the selection criteria, the size of the teaching groups and the student's group wishes. For most courses, the speed of registration is irrelevant. If you have multiple active study rights, please note that the criteria are checked always automatically based on the study right used in registration.
You can only take part in the course if you meet these mandatory prerequisites:
- you have registered for attendance for the duration of the entire teaching
- your right to study is valid throughout the course
- the course is part of your primary study plan and you have registered through your study plan
- you have completed the compulsory prior knowledge for the course
In addition, there may be other selection criteria for teaching. If there is space in the teaching, you can be selected even if these selection criteria are not met. Criteria can include:
- being a part of a certain target group
- the recommended prior knowledge for the course
- completed credits for the degree
- approved registration for another teaching
Please note that in some cases, being part of the target group may have been set as a mandatory requirement, which means that you cannot be accepted even if there are available spaces on the course. Always check the selection criteria in the course brochure.
If there are more registrations than there are places in the teaching and the registered are on an equal footing on the basis of the selection criteria, the students are selected on the basis of a draw.
If there are teaching group selections, students are not placed in the groups they have marked “not suitable”. Therefore, select at least one group as a preferred group and as many as possible as suitable.
On some courses, registered students are selected according to the order of registration on some courses and during re-registration. In this case, you will see a text below the registration button: “Students meeting the criteria will be accepted for the teaching directly if there are available places."
Where can I find the prerequisites and selection criteria?
The requirements and criteria that are checked automatically in registration can be found in the course brochure, under the teaching’s Registration tab. In addition to these, other selection criteria may be used if registrations are confirmed manually.
