Students are responsible for planning, scheduling and completing their studies and the academic coordinators are always happy to offer information on the courses. Please remember that you have to register for all courses and exams separately and well in advance. Also, note that there are course-specific registration periods for courses and exams.
Please note, that you can sign up for courses only after you have registered as being present at the university. Registration for courses requires a UEF username and password that you will receive when you register as a student.
You register for the courses usually in student register Peppi. The course registration is especially important for the courses with limited number of participants, such as laboratory courses, field courses, language courses, or other small-group teaching. Whereas some big lecture courses may not require registration at all – a list may be circulated at the first meeting of the course where participants sign their names. Please note that during the covid-19 pandemic it is important that everybody is registered to courses so that we know who is participating in each course.
The exchange students make a Learning Agreement when applying to UEF. The Learning Agreement is the starting point for the studies at UEF. Please note, that the Learning Agreement is not the same as course registration and does not guarantee a place in the course.

The degree students also make a Learning Agreement, but also a personal study plan in cooperation with the academic coordinator of their Master’s Degree programme, if other instructions are not given.
It is important to note that some advanced courses may have set requirements on the skills and background knowledge of the participants and this may limit their availability for some students. Participation may also be limited because of programme regulations, the availability of equipment and/or instruments, or the teaching method employed. Course descriptions identify these limitations when they exist by indicating the required or suggested prerequisites and the maximum number of students that is allowed to participate. International students are advised to take note of these limitations.
If you have signed up for a course in Peppi and then decide to drop it, you should remember to deregister in or notify the lecturer.
Schedules and more detailed information about courses can be found in Peppi as soon as they have been confirmed by the Faculty. More detailed information on the courses can be obtained from the responsible lecturer of the course. Each programme sets the schedules for the courses which may lead to timetable conflicts with courses in different programmes. If courses overlap, students should discuss the situation with both lecturers and negotiate the best possible solution.
Changes in course schedules will usually be informed in Peppi or by email to the participants.
