2. Register and activate your student account

In order to secure your study space, you must register online by as soon as possible. Here's how:

  • The semester registration opens on August 1st for the autumn semester. You will receive an email from us with information on how to activate your user account.
  • After the activation, you must confirm your education plan in Studentweb.

To access the USN online services, you need to activate your student account and upload a photo for your student card. Note: Before you can active your student account, you need to have your temporary 11-digit number ready. You will receive your temporary 11-digit number by mail.

3.  Confirm your intent to study

At the beginning of term, you will receive a text message to your mobile phone number, containing a link. You'll need to access this link and register a code. It will be specified in the text message when the code must be registered. The code will be published on this page.

You will need to confirm your intent to study by the deadline specified in the text message, regardless of when your programme actually starts. If you do not confirm your intent to study by the specified deadline, you will lose your admission offer and your place will be awarded to another qualified applicant.
