Key study-related links

Clubs and organizations at uni

  • ÕIS is for: registering to your classes and exams, finding the invoice of your tuition fees, any official information related to your studies

  • Moodle is for: finding class materials, submitting assignments (some lecturers might use something else).

  • It is possible to create a Moodle account without an Estonian ID card (just email them stating that you have not received your code yet)

  • ASIO is a calendar. Note: it is a general calendar for courses so it is not personalized to you like ÕIS

  • Generally speaking, if you have a question, first check the university's website (or the moodle), then email staff (or your lecturer).

  • Try to find out who your course representative is, as they will likely be able to help you if you have some questions or need to communicate with the university staff and lecturers.

  • Room numbers on campus work like this: the letter is the building, the first digit is the floor and the last two the room number. For example, A-325 in Astra building on the 3rd floor.

  • ESN is the Erasmus Student Network, and they organize a lot of events throughout the semester.

  • There is a blog for the humanities department, you can find it: here
