Course Terms

Courses are available for a student, post-graduate student or a staff member at Tampere universities who have paid the SportUni fee. The courses are grouped mainly in two challenge levels: beginner and advanced. If you have not tried the sport before, you should choose the beginner course. If you already know the basics of the sport and are looking for more of a challenge, enrol yourself on the advanced course. Some of the courses have an open challenge level and is then marked with open. These open courses are suitable for everyone.

How do I enrol?

You need to enrol on SportUni’s courses on the Internet pages. You can find the enrolment links in the Selection calendar and also in the course selection list. You need to enrol to the courses one by one. The enrolment is binding, so please do not enrol “just in case”. Enrolments are personal, and cannot be transferred to another person.

The enrolment system functions via Haka-identification, so a valid university user name and password are needed. The number of sports courses on which you can enrol is not restricted, i.e. you can enrol on as many courses as you wish. The SportUni fee and the course fee must be paid before you can join the course. It is not possible to get study credits for sport courses.

Did I get in?

The participants of the course are selected in enrolment order. There are limited number of places for the participants. The maximum number of participants can be found in every course description.

Under Mypage you can see a list of all the courses on which you have enrolled. You can see the status of your enrolment for each course. Status “Waiting” means your enrolment is being processed and you will soon receive a confirmation e-mail. Once the process is ready and you have received the e-mail (the e-mail connected to your Haka-identification = the university e-mail) and the course information is updated on the Mypage. The status is then changed to “Confirmed”.

After the maximum participant number is reached, the system automatically suggests you to enrol on the waiting list (normally 5 places). If also the waiting list will be full, the course is automatically removed from the enrolment list, and you can no longer make the enrolment for it. If cancellations occur, the places are filled according to the waiting list order. The customer on the first seat of the waiting list will automatically be accepted on the course and a new waiting list seat is released for enrolment.

If the status is “on waitlist”, you are on waiting list for the course. If you are accepted on to a course from the waiting list, you will be informed by an e-mail. Please check your trash-mailbox.

The enrolment is binding until the end of the course enrolment period also for the customers enrolled on waiting list. After the enrolment period is over the cancellation of the enrolment is not possible. Also, no more customers from waiting list are accepted on the course.

Please check the place where the course will be organized. If the course is organized in a sports facility of a university, you also need to have applied for the access rights.

Is there some fee on the course and how can I pay it?

To be able to participate on the course, the SportUni fee must be paid. In addition, for most of the courses, a participation fee is charged to cover part of the expenses for organizing the course. Prices incl. 10% VAT.

On your page you can see the payment information and your personal ID number with which the payment must be done. The course fee must be paid before the due date. The due date is mentioned in the course description. An unpaid course fee results to a reservation ban for the services of SportUni, which is valid until the payment is completed.

What if I have to cancel the course?

You can cancel your enrolment on your page during the enrolment period. Cancellations what is made after the enrolment period need a certificate (e.g. doctor’s certificate) in order for the course fee to be returned. The course fee must be paid if the participant does not cancel the enrolment before the enrolment period ends. The participant is responsible for checking that the cancellation has succeeded and the course is no longer listed on your page. In case the cancellation is not possible on your page for technical reasons, for example, you can cancel the enrolment also by informing the person responsible for the course directly by an e-mail. In this case also, the cancellation needs to be made during the enrolment period.

What if SportUni cancels the course?

Courses will be cancelled if there are not enough participants enrolled (every course has its minimum participant number). You will be informed about the cancellations, and a notice will also be posted on the SportUni web page under Courses. If the course is cancelled by the organizer, the already paid course fees are refunded to you.

Sometimes there is a situation when the course instructor get sick and we have to cancel the class. In this case we inform by an e-mail and try to organize a new extra class.

What information SportUni collects about me?

SportUni does not uphold a separate customer registry of the sports course participants. Participant e-mail addresses are automatically collected with the enrolment (via the Haka-enrolment system) and they are only used for contacting the customer regarding the course and feedback survey related matters. The e-mail addresses are not used for any other purpose.

How do I get more information?
