1. Personal overview of SG&USE activities you have attended   

For all students who have to comply with the SG&USE obligation, it is possible to view an overview of all activities followed in the attendance registration system: Academy Attendance. Below you will find the link to Academy Attendance and a short instruction.    

Students who already completed SG&USE before September 2020 are not registered in Academy Attendance. They can still view the overview of their five (or more) followed activities in the old registration system. See the info below.     

Academy Attendance  
In Academy Attendance you will find your personal overview of all SG&USE activities you attended. Both the activities that took place before and after September 2020.   

Please note: you cannot register in Academy Attendance to attend a future activity. If you want to attend an activity of Studium Generale on location, please register via the specific program page on this website. Your attendance will be registered by scanning your campus card. For attending programs online (via the livestream) it is not necessary to register in advance. The attendance registration will in that case also take place online. Look at point 2 and 3 on this page for all information about registration and offline and online attendance registration.   

Click on the link below to go to Academy Attendance and log in with the login details of your TU/e-studen t account.  

QuestionsIf you have problems logging in please ask your question via the Service Portal in Topdesk. 
If you have questions about registering activities in Academy Attendance, please contact Studium Generale (contact details can be found at the bottom of this page at point 5).

Logged in, and then what’s next?  
On the home page you see in the left column the items Dashboard, Calendar, Attendance, Activities, Subscriptions, Lessons.      

Go to Activities. This is the most important item for viewing your overview. The word Activity, in this case, stands for both activities and programs. 

If you see the MyFuture Activities page instead of the SG&USE page, please switch page by clicking one of the dots at the bottom of the page.    

On this page you will find:   

  • A brief description of the SG&USE scheme.   
  • A specification of the activities you followed. 
  • The overview of the number of activities you followed (green) and haven’t followed yet (red).      

I have already completed SG&USE before September 2020 and cannot log in to Academy Attendance.   
Students who have already attended five USE-labelled SG&USE activities before September 2020 (and have therefore already met the SG&USE obligation) are not registered in Academy Attendance. They can still log in to the old system via the link below to view their overview of attended activities.   

Login is only possible from TU/e campus or via VPN connection. You can find your student ID number on your campus card below the passport photo. If you experience problems logging in please contact us (contact details can be found at the bottom of this page at point 5).   

 2. Coronavirus, SG&USE credits and graduation  

The last USE-labeled SG program in the 2020/2021 academic year took place on Monday, July 14. From September, the start of the academic year 2021/2022 it will again be possible to follow new USE-labelled SG programs with us. Subject to the corona measures in force at that time, programs can be attended both at a campus venue and also online via livestream.

However, the regulation for online SG&USE registration may change if the corona measures are further eased and more people are allowed to attend at the campus venue. So please keep an eye on this website for up-to-date information! 

There will be no more exemption* from the SG&USE obligation for Bachelor students who are going to obtain their Bachelor’s degree and have not yet completed their USE learning trajectory.  ​ 

Please note: If you have questions about completing SG&USE and obtaining your Ba degree before September - start of academic year 2021/2022 - please contact us as soon as possible (contact information is at the bottom of this page at item 5). Please note that in July and August our availability is limited due to the summer break and we might not be able to answer questions in time. 

*Exemption regulation: Students who wanted to obtain their Bachelor degree before the start of Q1 2020/2021 could get an exemption for the obligation to attend five Studium Generale USE programs because of the consequences of the coronavirus measures, provided they had fulfilled all other obligations for obtaining the Bachelor degree.  

How does it work?   
The SG program for the upcoming quartile can be found here (Q1 will be published on July 15th). If there is a USE logo on the corresponding program page, this means that registration for SG&USE is possible. This is possible with both:   

  •  The offline USE-labelled programs that will take place on campus in a room for a limited group of visitors. The number of visitors that we can accommodate per program is currently limited due to government measures. Reservations via the website are therefore mandatory if you want to attend the program at the venue(e.g. De Blauwe Zaal, Luna building etc).   
  • The online programs with USE label that will be streamed live. 
    Please note: Do NOT reserve a seat if you want to watch the program online via the live stream.  
    You can only register for SG&USE if you watch the program live (so not watching it at a later time) and you fill in an online SG&USE registration form. During the program it will be explained where and when you can find the link to the online registration form. Keep your campus card with student ID number at hand. You will find your student ID number on your campus card below the passport photo. In the program info on this website you will find where you can view the live stream.   
    Processing in Academy Attendence can take up to 5 working days. Please contact us if the registration does not show up in your overview after 5 working days (contact details are at the bottom of this page at point 5). 

3. General explanation SG&USE regulation  

If you started Bachelor College in the fall of 2014 or later, then attending at least 5 activities of Studium Generale marked with a USE logo will be part of your USE learning trajectory. These SG activities do not include any exams, but you can only complete your USE learning trajectory if you have attended at least 5 activities. You can start at any time; make sure you start in time to complete your bachelor.  

Please register your participation on the spot when attending the program on campus, by scanning your student card before the start of the program at the venue. Or in case of an online live streamed SG & USE program, by filling out an online SG&USE registration form. During the online program it will be explained where and when you can find the link to the online registration form. Keep your campus card with student ID number at hand. You will find your student ID number on your campus card below the passport photo.  Please make sure your registration is done properly, otherwise we cannot verify that you attended the program. You can contact us if the registration does not show up in your overview after 5 working days (contact details at the bottom of this page under point 5. In the program info on this website you will find where you can view the live stream.    

Look at bullet point 1 for more information about your overview of attended activities. When you have fulfilled the obligation of following a minimum of 5 activities, this will be processed in Osiris under the course code SG100. Processing in Osiris can take up to two weeks; if the processing is not visible in Osiris two weeks after you attended your 5th activity, please contact us by email. Please mention your name and student ID number in your email.        

   
4. SG & Eindhoven School of Education (ESoE)   

Some students are exempt from the USE learning trajectory because they do the minor of the Eindhoven School of Education (ESoE). Also for these students, besides doing the coherent package, attending 5 SG activities with USE logo is a requirement. In Osiris this is the course code SG100. Completing the coherent package is independent from completing the course SG100. It is your own responsibility to complete SG100.
