Guidelines until 31.7.2019
When you have received your degree and it has been entered in the student register, your study rights will expire. However, you may still complete studies until the end of the semester in which you graduated. Notify Student and Learning Services of your studies, and they will give you the rights to complete your studies.
The faculty will issue more detailed provisions on pursuing studies after graduation in studies which lead to competencies or qualifications. For further information, see Faculty specific instructions or visit your Study Community.
Continued right to study after 1.8.2019
Students graduating from the University of Eastern Finland have the right to complement their degree studies pursuant to the university rules of procedure:
The right to pursue a degree terminates when the degree for which the right has been granted has been completed. A student, who has completed a Master’s degree in the University of Eastern Finland or a Bachelor’s degree with no right to complete a Master’s degree, has the right to complement their studies free of charge during the academic year on which the degree was completed and the following two academic years by enrolling as a student (continued right to study). Section 16.1 of the university rules of procedure
Students who graduate after 31 July 2019 may activate their continued right to study at any time after completing their degree. However, the right to study always terminates after the academic year on which the degree was completed and the following two academic years are over. The continued right to study can be activated by enrolling as a student at the Student Services customer service desk.
Students who have activated their continued right to study may study in the university in accordance with a minor subject study right or complete minor subject studies which the student has received the right to study during their degree studies. Any restrictions on education participation is specified in the curricula.
A student with a continued right to study shall be entitled to get an official transcript of academic records on the studies the student has completed.
