The University of Eastern Finland will extend the rights to study of its degree-seeking students and students of the Open University that are due to expire on 31 July 2020 until the end of 2020. The university acknowledges that for some students, the coronavirus situation may delay the progress of their studies. The study rights will be extended automatically and no action on the part of students is required.
“The well-being of our students is very important to us, and this is why we decided to extend their right to study. The coronavirus situation can cause anxiety and extra stress, but expiring study rights are now something our students don’t have to stress about,” Academic Rector Tapio Määttä says.
