EDUCATIONAL TASK OF KARELIA UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES Universities of applied sciences have three statutory tasks: education, research and development, and regional development. Karelia University of Applied Sciences provides UAS studies leading to UAS degrees at both the bachelor and master levels, professional specialisation studies for adults, open UAS studies and other forms of supplementary training, as well as research, development and innovation services, the aim of all of which is to support working life and to develop UAS education. The official language of instruction at Karelia University of Applied Sciences is Finnish (351/2003, 15). However, study units or modules in English can be included in Finnish degree programmes, when they are appropriate from the point of view of the field and promote the student s internationalisation. Similarly, degree programmes taught in English can include study units or modules in Finnish to promote the student s integration to Finnish working life.
3 Fields of study, degree programmes and degrees The licence to provide UAS education issued 12 December 2013 by the Government defines the educational responsibilities of Karelia University of Applied Sciences. As set in the Licence, Karelia University of Applied Sciences provides UAS studies in following fields of study: 1) Culture 2) Natural Sciences 3) Natural Resources and the Environment 4) Tourism, Catering and Domestic Services 5) Social Services, Health and Sports 6) Technology, Communication and Transport 7) Social Sciences, Business and Administration The Bachelor s and Master s Degrees provided by Karelia University of Applied Sciences are listed in Appendix 1 and Appendix Planning of education The Decree on Universities of Applied Sciences (352/2003, 4 7) defines the common goals and structure of degree awarding education. Policies and targets of development related to the education provided at Karelia University of Applied Sciences are defined in the education development programme. The basis for framing the curricula lies in the acts and decrees directing UAS activities, in the strategic choices of the UAS, in the needs of working life and its development, in students learning skills, and in the resources available. The curricula are used as a basis for framing annual implementation plans. The Director of the Centre is responsible for the planning, implementation and development of education in his/her centre. The UAS Board is responsible for the principles of curriculum development and curriculum renewal. The Vice President is responsible for verifying the curricula for degree awarding education and specialisation studies. The Directors of Centres or the Vice President are in charge of verifying the curricula for other forms of education. The timing of each academic year is decided by the UAS Board according to the Decree on Universities of Applied Sciences (352/2003, 17). The Vice President sets the dates for the start and end of studies each year, the individual semesters, and the time when education is provided. 3. STUDENT INTAKE AND RIGHT TO STUDY 3.1. Intake and student selection criteria The UAS has the right to decide its intake of students each year (351/2003, 21). The licence issued by the Government defines educational responsibilities that degrees granted by Karelia UAS must be based on. The performance agreement between Karelia UAS and the Ministry of Education and Culture defines targeted degrees in each field of study. Each year the Vice President determines the intakes for each degree programme and the criteria for student selection on the basis of the performance agreement. The criteria for student selection are based on national, field specific recommendations that are subject to be defined when necessary.
4 Student selection The regulations defined in the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 22, 25 a d) are followed in regards to student selection and acceptance of the study place. The Director of the Centre is in charge of student selection for degree awarding education at the bachelor and master levels. The Education and Development Manager in charge of a centre s adult education is responsible for the selection of students for professional supplementary education. The Director of the Centre is responsible for student selection regarding the studies provided by Finnish Online University of Applied Sciences. The Director of the Centre is also responsible for student selection for Open University of Applied Sciences. Students of Open UAS have a chance to apply to degree awarding education through separate application system. When entering a degree programme through Open UAS studies, a minimum of 60 credits of degree programme specific studies must be completed prior to application. In order to a student to be chosen to Social Services or Health Care, the student needs to pass the entrance examinations of the degree programme and meet the requirements for admission set by law Student enrolment Enrolment as a UAS student and practises related to the forfeiture of one s right to study follow the principles defined by the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 23 25). Degree awarding education The student must enrol each academic year as being present or absent. Neglecting the enrolment will result in forfeiture of the right to study. The student who is continuing his/her studies must enrol during the registration period which is specified separately every year by Student Services. The student starting his/her studies has to enrol when accepting the study place. The enrolment is done for one academic year at a time. However, if the right to study ends in December, enrolment can only be done for the autumn semester. The enrolment information can be changed in the middle of the academic year for certain special reasons; the change must be applied for from the President. These special reasons may include significant changes in the student s life, for example, serious illness in the family or personal health problems, maternity and paternity leave as well as military or non military service. The student must fill in an application that includes a written certificate from the authority in question. The changed information comes into effect during the next month of the application and ends at the end of the academic year in question. The student may enrol as being absent for a total of two (2) academic years during the whole course of his/her studies. A student with the absent status is not allowed to attend lectures, exams or practical training at the UAS, and neither can he/she prepare his/her thesis with the help of an instructor. Open UAS studies Enrolment for Open UAS studies is specified by separate enrolment instructions Right to study Issues related to study rights follow the principles defined by the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 24). Degree awarding education The right to study is provided for the duration of the particular degree programme and in addition, for one year immediately following the duration. If the student cannot complete his/her studies in set duration, he/she can enrol absent for the maximum of two academic years. The period of absence does not make the
5 study time shorter. The duration of studies in general degree awarding education is in accordance with fulltime studies of the degree programme in question, in degree awarding multi modal education in accordance with the studies defined in an individual study plan, and in education leading to a master s degree in accordance with the curriculum of the degree programme in question. To maintain the right to study, the student has to enrol as being present or absent each academic year. Without the right to study, the student cannot attend lectures or examinations, neither can he/she conduct practical training connected to the studies, nor prepare his/her thesis with the help of an instructor. The Board of Examiners will not accept the degree of a student without the right to study. Based on an acceptable cause for the delay in studies, the President of the UAS can grant a degree student the right to complete the studies after the right to study has ended. The time of the extension is defined on the basis of the remaining studies to be completed. The application must be turned in before the right to study has ended. Besides the criteria mentioned above, there are study right regulations defined separately for the students of social and health care as well as music pedagogy (351/2003, 25 a d, 28 a). The act applies to social and health care students who have started their studies after 31 December 2011 and to music pedagogy students who have started their studies after 31 December The study right of students of social services and health care as well as of music pedagogy may be suspended, withdrawn and reinstated on the basis of following reasons: a) unsuitability for studies, b) state of health and functional capacity, c) entry in the criminal record, or d) concealment of cancellation of previous right to study. There are separate instructions for applying these regulations at Karelia UAS (in Finnish). Based on an application, the President of the UAS can reinstate the student s right to study, usually taking effect on the beginning of next term. A student who has separated form the UAS will not be eligible for reinstatement of study right. A student who has separated from the UAS can continue his/her studies at Open UAS, and after completing his/her studies can apply for reinstatement of study right STUDYING AT KARELIA UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED SCIENCES 4.1. Student counselling Student counselling at Karelia UAS is based on a separate plan for student counselling and wellbeing of studies. Each student is entitled to receive counselling during the entire duration of his/her studies. Each centre has a student counsellor coordinating the counselling of students in cooperation with the other personnel and students Identification and recognition of prior learning The student has a right to utilise his/her prior learning as a part of the degree regardless of where and how the knowledge has been gained. The student is entitled to apply for the identification and recognition of prior learning in his/her current degree. There are separate instructions for the identification and recognition of prior learning (RPL process) at Karelia UAS. Credit transfer of previous studies comply with the decree (552/2003, 14). The student is entitled to apply for credit transfer in his/her current degree for previously completed studies and for knowledge acquired through other means. As a rule, studies completed more than ten (10) years ago cannot be transferred. The credit transfer takes place by transfer or inclusion. The transfer of prior studies means studies completed
6 elsewhere with the comparable content, studies completed in the equal level of institutions of higher education. Inclusion means studies completed elsewhere, outside the degree programme, in the equal level of institutions of higher education and they are included to the degree s optional studies. Prior learning knowledge is shown through demonstrations. After the student has submitted an application for credit transfer, inclusion or RPL as suggested by the lecturer of the study unit, the Director of the Centre decides on the transfer and accreditation of marks awarded by other institutions or on recognition and acknowledgement of prior learning. The student may apply for exemption from degree studies for special reasons. The President makes a decision on exemption after a proposal by the Director of the Centre. For exemptions from language studies, see section 4.5. The thesis can be accredited if the student has conducted a higher education level thesis on his/her current field of education, or if the previously conducted thesis is otherwise compatible with the current field. The Director of the Centre is to decide upon the student s application for either partial or total accreditation of the thesis as suggested by a teacher in charge. Skills acquired during one s military or non military service can be accredited according to normal RPLprocedure. Based on a student s application, the maximum of three credits can be accredited for NCOtraining and the maximum of six credits for officer training, if the service has been completed after the year The student may accredit the maximum of 15 credits for participation in student union or student tutor activities in his/her studies. Karelia University of Applied Sciences has signed a collaboration agreement with Joensuu Sports Academy. The aim of this cooperation is to provide the students of the Academy with an opportunity to complete higher education studies alongside their sports career. Students may include their participation in a training programme organised by the Sports Academy in their degree. A maximum of 15 credits of studies can be transferred Assessment and record of credits Assessment of students learning and qualifications is based on common UAS assessment principles defining the criteria for excellent, good and satisfactory study performance. In different phases of studies, assessment should form a consistent whole and support the objectives of education. The assessment criteria and methods are premised on the learning objectives of each study unit. A teacher must present written assessment criteria for his/her study units at the beginning of each course at the latest. Study performance is assessed using a grading scale of 1 5: excellent (5), good (3 4), satisfactory (1 2), fail (0), or pass/fail scale. Transferred credits are assessed using the same scale as the equivalent study unit at Karelia University of Applied Sciences. In case the grading scale of the transferred course differs from the scale 1 5, the grade shall be translated into this scale. In case an accredited course has been assessed using the scale 1 5, the equivalent scale will be used in the accreditation of this course. In other cases, accredited studies will be assessed with pass. A study unit included in degree awarding education may be taken three (3) times with the same degree requirements. The specific times are available in an examination schedule. The first attempt is connected with the realisation of the study unit and the other two are resits (re exams). If the student fails on all three attempts, s/he must retake the unit with the most recent, possibly altered requirements. In examinations or other assessment situations, students must prove their identity on request.
7 It is also possible to raise given grades throughout the set duration of studies (e.g. 3.5 years for nursing students). The same requirements for raising grades of a study unit apply for one year from the date of the last study attainment. Thereafter, the grade may be raised, if the same study unit still exists, with possible new course requirements. The former grade continues to be valid if the new grade is lower. The teacher must assess the examination and enter the mark/grade in a record of credits as soon as possible, but no later than within one (1) month from the examination date or from the submission of study attainments. However, teachers holidays are not included in this time. The same timing applies to practical training and thesis work. The date of assessment marked into the records of credits is the date of an exam, that of the completion of another task, or that when a report, practical work or similar project is handed in. If completing the study unit requires written assignments or reports to be submitted in addition to an examination, these must be turned in by of the end of the study unit or training at the latest. The student has the right to receive a confirmed transcript of his/her records from Student Services. Theses are to be kept permanently. All other documents serving as a basis for assessment must be retained for a minimum time of six (6) months. The teacher in charge of each course is responsible for retaining the study attainments Correction of course marks/grades The procedure used for correcting course marks and grades follows the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 27). The student has the right to obtain information on the use of assessment criteria for his/her study performance. The methods used during a correction process are defined by a Government decree. If the student is dissatisfied with the assessment of his/her studies, transfer of his/her prior studies or with the assessment of his/her studies completed through other means, s/he has the right to appeal to the lecturer who has assessed his/her performance or the Director of the Centre who decided upon the transfer of credits. The student must submit either a written or an oral request for correction within 14 days from the announcement of the results and assessment criteria. The lecturer or the Director of the Centre must decide on the matter withing 14 of receiving the appeal. If the student is dissatisfied with the lecturer s or Director of Centre s solution, s/he has a possibility to make a written request for correction to UAS Board of Examiners within 14 days from the date s/he has received a reply. The Board of Examiners must take the request for correction into handling withing 30 days after it has been received Language requirements Language proficiency requirements for both bachelor s and master s degrees at universities of applied sciences are specified in the Decree on Universities of Applied Sciences (352/2003, 8). Proficiency in the other national language as required of personnel in public bodies and state personnel in bilingual authorities is assessed as follows: 1) students who have started their studies after 1 August 2007 are assessed with a grade of good/satisfactory in spoken language skills in Finnish/Swedish and good/satisfactory in written language skills in Finnish/Swedish, and 2) students who have started their studies before 1 August 2007 with one grade: good/satisfactory. Complete or partial exemption from language proficiency requirements determined by the decree is granted by the President on a proposal of the Head of Language Services.
8 Practical training The objective of practical training is to make the student familiar with practical tasks that are essential particularly in professional studies and to provide the student with the opportunity to apply his/her skills and knowledge in working life. Prior to training, it is necessary to make a written agreement of the training period on a training agreement form provided by Karelia UAS. The agreements are approved and signed by the Director of the Centre or the Education and Development Manager acting as the deputy. Agreements regarding international practical training (Learning Agreement or Training Agreement) are signed by the Student Services secretary or coordinator and the Director of the Centre or the Education and Development Manager acting as the deputy. Detailed objectives, extent, structure, content, form and evaluation of the practical training period are determined by each degree programme. Common practises for practical training in degree awarding education are specified in separate instructions Thesis The objective of the thesis of UAS degrees is to develop and verify the student s qualifications and ability to apply his/her skills and knowledge in practical expert assignments related to his/her professional studies. The objective of the thesis of master level UAS degrees is to develop and verify the student s qualifications and ability to apply knowledge received from research, use selected methods to analyse and solve problems in working life, and ability to work independently in demanding expert assignments. The thesis must be closely related to the core contents of the degree in question and the professional practices of the field. It may concentrate on a single field of study or be a multi disciplinary assignment, and it can be an individual performance or research, or a project carried out as teamwork. When the thesis is a result of teamwork, each student must indicate his/her own personal contribution in the preparation process. The purpose of the thesis is to show familiarity with the subject of the thesis, research methods and professional communication. The extent of the thesis is 15 credits for UAS degrees and 30 credits for masterlevel UAS degrees. The thesis is assessed on a scale of 1 5 using the common assessment criteria and the Karelia UAS assessment form. The thesis must be written in the language of the degree, unless the student applies for an exception from the Director of the Centre for a special reason. Each thesis must include an abstract written in any foreign language taught at Karelia UAS. Theses are public documents and their appendices may contain other related public or confidential documents. The existence of appended material must be proven in the public part of the thesis. When assessing the thesis, the public part is considered only. Common practises for conducting theses at Karelia UAS are specified in separate thesis instructions Optional studies Students who have started their studies during Autumn term 2014 or later do not have optional studies specifically outlined in their curriculum, but optional studies are included in complementary studies, instead. For students who have started their studies before Autumn term 2014, the curricula for degree awarding education contain optional studies, the extent of which is defined in each curriculum. However, the student can conduct a larger number of optional studies during the set duration of his/her studies. Each student can select his/her optional studies on the basis of his/her personal goals according to the individual study plan. Optional studies can include studies provided by Karelia UAS or other institutions of higher education supporting the student s professional growth. Optional studies supplement the student's degree and they should be mainly carried out during the studies.
9 The required extent of optional studies connected to master level UAS degrees is specified in the curriculum and the content of studies in the individual study plan Maturity examination As defined by the Decree on Universities of Applied Sciences (352/2003, 10) the student needs to complete a maturity examination for his/her degree. The maturity examination is a supervised written test in Finnish or in Swedish indicating the student s abilities in using the language and his/her familiarity with the subject of the thesis. The maturity examination is taken after the thesis has been submitted for approval to the instructor of the thesis. Completion of the maturity examination will be marked in the student s record of credits. Topics for the maturity examination are provided by the instructor of the thesis. The examination is evaluated using pass/fail. If the student has transferred from abroad or has, for some other reason, studied using some other language, or has been given permission to conduct the thesis with some other language than the language of instruction in his/her degree, the Director of the Centre determines the language to be used in the maturity examination Disciplinary procedure The disciplinary procedure for students at Karelia UAS is defined by the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 28). A student must be given an opportunity to be heard before taking disciplinary measures. Any warnings issued to a student are decided by the President and the Board of Karelia UAS makes a decision of temporarily suspending a student. Drug testing measures at Karelia UAS are in compliance with the Act on Universities of Applied Sciences (351/2003, 25d). The way in which the enactments are to be applied are described in separate instructions, available in Finnish. Karelia UAS has a separate team acting as a key player in handling issues related to students substance abuse, being under the influence of substances, and drug crimes. (Instructions how to prevent students substance abuse and how to deal with issues related to substance abuse, available in Finnish.) The student who is found to be guilty of deceit in an exam can immediately be removed from the exam situation and his/her performance will be dismissed. The study attainment will also fail when the deceit or plagiarism is not observed until after the exam or after handing in the thesis, exercise or report. Deceit or plagiarism can also cause other disciplinary punishments based on the law and the Karelia UAS regulations. If a candidate disturbs an exam or other assessment situation, the supervisor can, after a warning, remove him/her from the room. When a candidate s exam or other assessment situation is terminated due to cheating or causing a disturbance, the supervisor must report the reason for suspension to the Director of the Centre. 5. GRADUATION AND CERTIFICATES Completion of bachelor s degrees, master s degrees and specialisation studies at Karelia UAS is based on the achievement of objectives defined in the curriculum Degree certificates
10 All records of successfully completed study units and modules must be notated in the record of credits in order for the student to graduate and receive his/her degree certificate of UAS degree and master level UAS degree. The degree is validated by a centre specific College of Examiners consisting of three members (and their personal deputies) elected by the UAS Board. The College of Examiners meets once a month, except in July. If necessary, the College of Examiners can have two meetings a month. The dates of these meetings are confirmed by the Vice President of Karelia UAS and they are announced at the beginning of each academic year by Student Services in Pakki student portal. The certificates are issued on such dates that the student is entitled to receive financial aid for that month.
