All students enrolled in the University of Oulu, including postgraduate students and students taking non-degree studies, are obligated to register to the university annually, in order to be able to exercise their right to study.

Students have to register to the university at the beginning of the academic year for both autumn and spring term, either as present or absent student. Only those registered as present can pursue their studies. All students studying for a Bachelors or Masters degree are members of the Student Union and pay the Student Union membership fee before the registration.
