For example: chatting in exam hall or quoting other writers
without appropriate references is considered as cheating
•
Use references every time you quote other writers/websites/etc.
•
If found guilty of cheating, the exam (or other course work) will be
annulled and the student will get a warning.
•
Severe offences can be punished even by suspending the student.
Other practical issues
Registration to the university (in case you haven’t done this already)
•
First you’ll need to pay the student union fee (96 Euros/year, includes
student health service fee) at the Student Union office
•
Then, in Student Center (room: KE1020, open Mon-Fri 9 am – 3 pm),
you can enroll as present student (take the receipt of student union fee
with you).
•
After enrollment you’ll receive your user account for Webmail and
WebOodi (takes usually 1 day, at most)
•
Until the student card arrives, student discounts in restaurants etc. will
be received only with the receipt of the payment
A comprehensive guide on practical issues (Guide for New International
