Student Enrolment

 

The enrolment of new students for the academic year 

New students will enrol for the academic year at the same time they accept their study place.

First-year students can register as absent only on legal grounds:

1) service under the Conscription Act (1438/2007), Non-Military Service Act (1446/2007) Act on Women’s Voluntary Military Service (194/1995);
2) maternity, paternity or parental leave; or
3) if the student cannot start studies due to being incapacitated by personal illness or injury.

The legal grounds of the absence must be verified with appropriate documentation. If the student registers as absent during the first study year, but does not provide adequate documentation for the reasons of the absence by the deadline specified by the university of applied sciences, the student will lose the study entitlement. If the student wants to start his/her studies later, he/she will have to apply for the reinstatement of the study entitlement.


The enrolment of continuing students for the academic year 

Continuing students must register for the next academic year through Peppi either as present or absent.  The registration period for the whole academic year is from 1 April until 31 August. Changes for the registration for the spring term can be done by contacting student office between 15 December and 31 December. If the student has legal grounds for the absence, he/she must submit appropriate documentation to the student office by 31.12. (registration as absent for the spring term).
