How do I enroll?

You can enroll on all SportUni courses on our webpage. You find the enrollment links in the Selection calendar and also in the course selection list. You need to enroll on the courses one by one.

The enrollment system functions via Haka-identification, so a valid university user name and password are needed. The number of sports courses on which you can enroll is not restricted, i.e. you can enroll on as many courses as you like. It is not possible to get study credits from the sport courses.

The courses are classified mainly in two challenge levels: beginners and advanced. If you have not tried the sport before, we recommend the beginners course. If you already know the basics of the sport and are looking for more of a challenge, enroll 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.

Did I get in?

The participants of the course are selected in enrollment order. Each course has a 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 enrollment for each course. Status “Waiting” means your enrollment is being processed and you will soon receive a confirmation e-mail. When you have received the e-mail (the e-mail connected to your Haka-identification = the university e-mail), the course information is updated on the Mypage and the status is then changed to “Confirmed”.

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

If the status is “on waitlist”, you are on the waiting list for the course. If you are accepted on a course from the waiting list during the enrollment period, you will be informed by e-mail. Please also check your junk-mailbox. The enrollment is binding until the end of the course enrollment period also for the customers on the waiting list.
