Attendance registration of doctoral students

Each student pursuing a doctoral (or licentiate) degree at JYU must formally register for attendance or non-attendance for each academic year. Only students who have registered for attendance are allowed to participate in instruction, are entitled to supervision and can complete study units, credits and doctoral degrees. If a student does not intend to pursue studies or carry out dissertation research during the academic year, he/she may register for non-attendance.

New doctoral students

New doctoral students admitted in spring 2018 must complete the enrolment form they have received with the admission letter and return it to the faculty by 31 July 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

New doctoral students admitted in autumn 2018 must accept their study place online at www.studyinfo.fi. From the Studyinfo service, they are directed to the OILI service for registration. The deadline for registration is 31 December 2018 at 3:00 p.m.

For the first year of studies, a student may register for non-attendance for the following reasons only:

The student

  • is carrying out military or non-military service according to the Conscription Act (1438/2007), the Non-Military Service Act (1446/2007) or the Act on Women’s Voluntary Military Service (194/1995);
  • is on maternity, paternity or parental leave; or
  • is unable to start the studies due to personal illness or injury/disability.

If you wish to register for non-attendance for the first year of studies, please either

a) fill in the non-attendance form and send it together with required documents (mentioned on the form) to:

Admission Services
P.O. BOX 35
FIN-40014 University of Jyväskylä
Finland

or

b)  show the required documents and register at the Admission Services of the University of Jyväskylä:

Continuing doctoral students

Doctoral students continuing their studies must register between 2 May and 31 July. Registration takes place in the OILI service (select language from top of the page). Log in to the OILI service with your JYU user ID.

Before registering, please check in your personal data in Korppi, whether your 'Personal identification number' is the same as your official Finnish personal identity code. If not, please ask the Student Services at opiskelijapalvelut@jyu.fi to enter your correct code to the student register. You can register in OILI only after your Finnish personal identity code is correct in our student register.

If you cannot log in to the OILI service (e.g. if your JYU user account is not active, or you do not have online banking in a Finnish bank), please contact Student and Academic Services, opiskelijapalvelut@jyu.fi.

Please note that Korppi will expire as an attendance registration tool after the end of April 2018. In August 2018, supervision documents in Korppi will be replaced with a new supervision document service. Supervision documents will be registered or updated in the new service after the attendance registration.
