From this date onwards ...

  • first year students and other new students can log into Minerva for the first time (once they have received their UGent account after enrolment).
  • other students can switch to the new academic year via the link under "Offer 2015-2016". As a result:
    • their study offer in Minerva is automatically adjusted according to their official registration in OASIS for the new academic year 2016-2017
    • it becomes possible to subscribe to other coursesites from the academic year 2016-2017 (out of interest or curiosity)
    • all courses belonging to their official curriculum during the previous academic years remain accessible under Study Offer > Archive.
  • students keep their access to infosites (because infosites are not tied to a specific academic year). Students must sign out for infosites that are no longer relevant to them (this does not happen automatically).
