This information regarding registration for transferable skills courses concerns all doctoral candidates in DSHealth.
Doctoral candidates in DSHealth should register to the transferrable skills courses organized by DSHealth through WebOodi (unless otherwise stated).
Doctoral candidates or undergraduates coming from outside the University of Helsinki (e.g. from Universities within the NorDoc network) as well as other research staff may apply to the transferrable skills courses organized by DSHealth using an e-form.
When do I register?
You can register during the registration period. It is possible that courses with a small number of registrations will be opened again for registration.
How do I cancel my registration?
You can cancel your registration in WebOodi during the registration period. After this period and if you have been accepted to the course you must email DSHealth ASAP to cancel your registration: email@example.com
How are students selected for courses?
Student selection for courses usually takes place automatically based on the students’ registration order. Selected students will always receive “Welcome to the course…” –letter.
For some courses, the course teacher selects the students on the basis of questions asked in connection with registration. In such cases, the teacher notifies the selected students of their admission to the course.
Reserve list /wait-list
If you were not admitted to a course but are on the reserve list you can check your status on WebOodi (status is marked as HYLÄTTY / REJECTED REGISTRATION). In this case you are on the wait-list. DSHealth will approach you only if free seats are available. Free seats are always offered to candidates on the wait-list based on the registration order.
Keep the following in mind when registering for courses
- DSHealth courses are mostly overbooked, and unfortunately with many doctoral candidates on the "wait-list"
- Registrations are confirmed to selected candidates via email based on registration order (unless otherwise stated)
- Cancel your registration if you are unable to participate in the course (to ensure that those interested in the course have a chance to take it).
Why? An uncancelled course place means an empty seat in class and unnecessary queues for courses.
