2. All the info you need in one place
You can find all the information you need about a particular subject in one place. No need to consult several websites.

3. Customised information
Indicate which study programme you are following and you’ll be shown information that is relevant and useful to you.

4. Access to all systems
Easy access to Blackboard, Usis, U-mail, the e-prospectus and your schedule.   

5. One site full of useful information and tips
Money matters, internships, study tips, study abroad, have a complaint? The new website contains a wealth of tips, good advice and references.

Guide to using this website

Select a study programme
You must first select your study programme or specialisation to access customised information. You can do this by typing the name of your programme in the centre of the menu bar, at the top of your screen. Alternatively you can opt to visit the website as a guest, to access general, non-programme specific information only.  After making a selection you will always arrive at the same page when accessing the website from that device.

Finding your way
By using the search box or navigation structure you can access a wide range of useful information on student registration & de-registration, internships, career & work, honours education and much more.
