1. Personal overview of SG&USE activities you attended  

Update Tuesday 13 October: New attendance registration system accessible  

For all students who have to comply with the SG&USE obligation, it is now possible to view an overview of all activities followed in the new 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-student account. If you have problems logging in or have questions about registering activities in Academy Attendance, please contact us (contact details can be found at the bottom of this page at point 5).   

Please note: it’s possible that your name is not displayed correctly because special characters are not recognized. This will be changed shortly.   

Logged in, and then what’s next? 
On the home page you see in the left column the items Dashboard, Calendar, Courses, Colloquia.    

Go to Colloquia. This is the most important item for viewing your overview. The word colloquia, in this case, stands for: activities/programs.   

On this page you will find:  

  • A brief description of the SG&USE scheme.  

  • The overview of the number of activities you followed.   

  • A specification of the activities you followed.   

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.   

Questions 
If you experience problems logging in or have questions about registering activities in Academy Attendance, please contact us (contact details can be found at the bottom of this page at point 5).  


2. Coronavirus, SG&USE credits and graduation  

From the start of the academic year 2020/2021 it will again be possible to follow USE-labelled SG programs with us; online and where possible also offline. From that moment on, there will also 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.  

Graduation in Q1 2020/2021  
Are you planning to graduate in Q1 2020/2021 (September/October) and  you have already fulfilled the obligation to follow at least 5 activities, please send an email to studium.generale@tue.nl with your name, student ID number and the overview of attended activities (title and date). After verification by us in Osiris, it will be processed under the course code SG100.  

How does it work?  
The new SG program for the first quartile (September-October) can be found here. 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 limited due to RIVM measures. Reservations via the website are now 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.  
     

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 at least attended these 5 activities. You can start at any time, but 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 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. At the program info on this website you will find where you can view the live stream.   

Look at bulletpoint 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 last 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. 

  

5. Contact  

Do you have questions about the SG&USE regulation? First read the information above to see if the answer to your question is there. If you have another question, please let us know via studium.generale@tue.nl.  For questions about the Bachelor College and the USE learning trajectory, it is best to contact the study advisor of your study program.  

*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.
