Before departure – checklist for exchange students
Before departure - checklist for exchange students
Before leaving University of Eastern Finland for your home country:
Give notice to end your student housing lease at least one full calendar month before you leave.
Fill out the Departure Information Form/ Request for Transcript, and return form in person to Student and Learning Services and ask for your Transcript of Academic Records. It can be issued if all your courses/results are already in your records, otherwise the transcript will be sent to you later.
Ask for a Letter of Confirmation at the International Mobility Services, if you would like to have one. NB! You can have this only 7 days before your departure. If your home university has asked to return their own forms, please bring them with you for signing.
Give feedback of your stay. You will receive instructions from the International Mobility Services.
Return all the library books you have borrowed and pay the possible overdue fees.
Return your survival package to the Student Union office, if you had one.
Check that all your bills are paid. Close your Finnish bank account.
Confirm your travel arrangements (e.g. tickets) and check the regulations for luggage weight (if applicable).
After properly cleaning up your room, return the keys in order to get your housing deposit back.
