It is mandatory to register to courses in advance. The three methods of registration depend on which university organises the course. Please notice, that regardless of the organising university, all courses must be added to your personal study plan in Sisu of University of Helsinki (UH). Read Sisu instructions below.
- If the REES course is organised by your home university, use the parent university’s own system for registration (e.g. Weboodi, Sisu).
- If the course is organised by University of Helsinki, register via UH’s Sisu. See more detailed instructions below. Please note, that all of the mandatory ExpREES courses are also organised by UH.
- If the course is organised by some other university of the ExpREES network, register via online registration form.
Use online registration form to register to courses before the deadline. The deadlines for registration for autumn periods are:
Deadlines for the spring periods are:
As a rule, each deadline is for the courses starting during the next month. In some cases, the deadline for registration takes place many weeks before the beginning of the course. Consider these when planning your studies.
The staff of ExpREES will forward the registration information submitted via online registration form to the parent university’s contact personnel or the teachers of the course. After this, the teachers will contact the registered students of other universities. However sometimes the students are expected to take part in the course after registration without any contact from the teachers. Some universities need additional information to register the students to their own systems. In these cases, the staff of ExpREES will ask the students to fill a separate form in addition to the registration.
If the number of participants to a course is not sufficient, the course will be cancelled. So please take care to register to courses, and remember to cancel your registration, if you are for some reason unable to participate.
In some cases, the faculties might ask the students to register via JOO-agreements. However, this is not necessary because ExpREES students’ right to take courses listed in the ExpREES Study Guide is based on bilateral agreements between the Aleksanteri Institute and REES network universities. Other students’ ability to take part in ExpREES courses is dictated by the terms of their own study programs and possibly JOO-studies.
To complete the ExpREES study module you need at least 25 credits worth of courses, of which 15 credits are comprised of mandatory courses. In addition to the mandatory courses, every student may choose as many optional courses as they wish from the ExpREES curriculum. Furthermore, to complete the ExpREES studies, the subject of the thesis needs to deal with Russia and Eastern Europe.
