    About registration in "sisu"

    Note that the course registration is open until 2 January 2023. Also note that a limited number of students will be accepted to the course, with preference given to WAT Master's Students. If you are not WAT student, you are expected to give during registration a short motivation letter, where you state why you plan to take the course and how it benefits your studies. 

    If you missed the registration, you may come to the first session and we can discuss about your plans regarding the course.
