Student Services and Student News

Besides the information provided via the educational systems, there are two channels via which you will be updated about student affairs:

  1. Student services pages: summary of information for students
    The student services pages combine information about administrative procedures for students, news/events, other announcements and quicklinks to the educational systems.
  2. Student News: monthly update
    Of course it is possible that you may miss important general information via the above channels. That’s why you receive the Student News monthly by email. This email contains an update about events at the UT, training programmes of the Study & Career Centre, changes in Canvas and OSIRIS and other relevant information.
