Cross-institutional studies are one form of educational cooperation between universities.
For the student, cross-institutional studies offer more extensive options.
Cross-institutional studies may be described as follows:
• Student holds a valid study right at her/his home university which enables her/him to pursue studies at another university. The student must be present at the home university while pursuing studies at another university.
• Student can choose studies from another university, as defined in the network agreement between universities. Field-specific cooperation defines the studies that may be pursued by students from another university.
• Student is given a fixed-term study right at another university for the purpose of completing studies.
• The rules and regulations of the university that arranges teaching are followed in the studies.
• The target university evaluates the study attainments and enters them into their own study register. At UEF, the credits are entered into the student and study register as ‘Studies completed elsewhere’.
Cross-institutional studies can include, for example, minor subject studies pursued at another university within the network, or some studies in the student’s major subject as per the curriculum are organized in teaching cooperation within the network.
The cross-institutional minor subject studies can be found in Kamu Student Handbook at Minor subject studies at UEF.
The flexible study right studies (JOO) are an exception. These flexible study right studies (JOO) require an approval from the home university. Please see further information about these studies at JOO-flexible study right studies.
