Students apply by enrolling on Open University courses. Students will have the right to study on those courses to which they have been admitted. (Avoimen ammattikorkeakoulun opinnot toimintaohje available in Finnish only).

9 9 (19) 5.5 Vocational teacher education, student counsellor education and special needs teacher education 6 Study entitlement and period of right to study 6.1 Education leading to Bachelor s degrees The Director of the Professional Teacher Education Unit decides on the student selection criteria procedures for teacher education programmes on an annual basis. Student admissions are prepared by the Unit s personnel responsible for selecting students on the basis of national criteria. The student application and selection schedules and implementation of selection are determined in accordance with the national joint application procedure, which is governed by the Government Decree on the Joint Polytechnics (=universities of applied sciences) Application System (1044/2009). Applicants are granted study entitlement when they have been admitted to complete a Bachelor s degree or a Master s degree and vocational teacher education studies. The right-to-study period commences when the student (applicant) has accepted a student place and has been entered as being present in the student register for the first time. The statutory completion time means a period of time that corresponds to the scope of studies in years. The statutory completion time for full-time Bachelor s degree studies is 4 years (240 credits) or 3.5 years (210 credits). The duration of studies may not exceed the statutory completion time by more than one year, which is the maximum completion time for studies (right-to-study period). Full-time students may register for non-attendance for a maximum period of two academic years. The non-attendance period is not included in the maximum duration of studies. The right-to study period of part-time students is determined by the Rector s decision concerning the duration of the programme. The degree must be completed within a period of time that does not exceed the statutory completion time by more than one year. Part-time students may register for non-attendance for a maximum period of one academic year, but not earlier than after one semester of studies. The non-attendance period is not included in the maximum duration of studies.

10 10 (19) 6.2 Education leading to Master s degrees 6.3 Professional specialisation studies 6.4 Open University of Applied Sciences The implementation time for Master s degree studies is 2 years (60 credits) or 2.5 years (90 credits). The maximum completion time for studies (right-to-study period) is one year longer than the implementation time. Master s degree students may register for non-attendance for a maximum period of one academic year, but not earlier than after one semester of studies. The non-attendance period is not included in the maximum duration of studies. The rector approves the programme-specific right-to-study period for professional specialisation studies when approving the annual provision of studies. The students do not have a statutory non-attendance right. The right-to-study period in open studies of applied sciences depends on the course. 6.5 Vocational teacher education, student counsellor education and special needs teacher education 7 Student enrolment Vocational teacher education studies (60 credits) are completed in 1-2 years. Various forms and periods of implementation are approved and offered in autumn before the next application period. Studies must be completed within no more than one year over and above a period of time equivalent to their scope. The maximum completion time for part-time studies is three years. The right-to study period commences when an applicant has accepted a student place and has been entered as being present in the student register for the first time. The students do not have a statutory non-attendance right. People admitted as students may only postpone starting their studies by one year for special reasons, such as serious illness. As there is no nonattendance right, such a postponement will be deducted from the total right-to-study period. Decisions on postponement of studies are issued by the E&R Director of Education. Each academic year, degree students must enrol as being present or absent within the time frame determined by HAMK. Only students enrolling as being present have the right to take studies, receive guidance and gain credits for completed courses entered in the credit records database.

11 11 (19) Each academic year, students must enrol as being present in writing. Only students enrolling as being present are entitled to take studies and have credits for completed courses entered in the credit records database. 7.1 Failure to enrol Degree students who have not enrolled will lose their study entitlement. If students wish to continue their studies later on, they must apply to HAMK to regain their right to study. The Vice Rector makes the decision on the reinstatement of the right to study. The right to study can be reinstated at the beginning of following month after submission of the application. If students regain their right to study, they must enrol according to the procedure mentioned above. The student will be charged an application fee of 35 euros. The fee is based on Government decree application 1230/2009. In the Professional Teacher Education Unit the students who have not enrolled will lose their study entitlement. If students wish to continue their studies later on, they must reapply to the programme through the student selection procedure. 8 Studies and guidance The studies are organised so that students can complete them within the period prescribed in curricula. The academic year commences on 1 August and ends on 31 July. Students are entitled to receive guidance during all phases of their studies. The extent, activities and people providing guidance are determined and described in the Student Guidance and Counselling guideline. Each degree student prepares a personal study plan (PSP), including options according to his or her personal objectives and to the compulsory, alternative or optional studies specified in the curriculum for the degree being completed. The PSP process is governed by a guideline. Guidance and acceptance of completion of work placements (included in higher education degrees completed at universities of applied sciences), production-oriented workplace studies, Bachelor s thesis and Master s thesis are specified in the guidelines. 8.1 Language of instruction and language proficiency requirements The languages of instruction in HAMK are Finnish and English. Studies in the second official language and in a foreign language are governed by the Government Decree on Polytechnics (= universities of applied sciences) 352/2003.

12 12 (19) Degree programmes conducted in Finnish also include courses or parts of them conducted in English. English is the language of instruction in the degree programmes taught in English. Parts of the courses are conducted in Finnish in order to support the students integration into the Finnish labour market. A student who is studying in a degree programme conducted in English can include a maximum of 15 per cent of studies in Finnish in his/her personal study plan (PSP). Degree students write the maturity test as part of their Bachelor s or Master s thesis in Finnish or Swedish according to Section 10 of the Decree on Polytechnics (= universities of applied sciences). If the student has been educated in a language other than Finnish or Swedish or he has been educated abroad, he will write his maturity test in either Finnish or in English. (Decree 52/2003, Sections 8 and10). 8.2 International studies 9 Competence-based assessment The curricula of degree programmes should give students the skills needed for the international labour market. Within international mobility, students can complete studies in foreign partner institutions or they can complete work placements in foreign enterprises. In addition, HAMK arranges double degree programmes with foreign partner institutions. (Student Exchange guideline and International Double Degrees guideline.) HAMK applies a competence-based student assessment approach, which means the assessment of courses completed at HAMK and the recognition and accreditation of prior learning or learning acquired elsewhere during studies. Bachelor s degree and Master s degree courses are assessed on a scale from 5 to 0 and Pass (H) Fail (0). Grading scale and its use are determined and described in the Course Assesment guideline. Vocational teacher education courses are mainly assessed as pass/requires improvement. Special needs teacher education courses are assessed as pass/requires improvement. Basic studies in special pedagogy are assessed on a scale from 5 to 0. Student counsellor education courses are assessed as pass/requires improvement.

13 13 (19) 10 Discretionary extension period Credit transfer and identification and recognition of learning are carried out through the recognition of prior learning (RPL) process, which is governed by a separate guideline. Bachelor and Master s degree students who have not completed their studies within the right-to-study period will lose their study entitlement. On special grounds, an extension period to complete the degree may be granted on the basis of the student s application. As a rule, the maximum length of the extension period is two semesters. In exceptional case, when the student s degree is almost complete, an additional extension period of one semester may be granted. Applications for an extension period must be made during the right-to-study period. The extension period is granted by the Vice Rector. The student will be charged an application fee of 35 euros. The fee is based on Government decree application 1230/2009. In vocational teacher education, special needs teacher education and student counsellor education, on special grounds, the Director of the Professional Teacher Education Unit may grant students, on the basis of their application, extra time in which to complete their studies. This application must be made during the right-to-study period. Extra time may only be granted once and for a maximum period of six months. In professional specialisation studies, students may, on special grounds, apply for an extension period of half a year. The extension period is granted by the E&R Director of Education. 11 Granting right to study in order to complete degree-awarding studies 12 Certificates and conferment If Bachelor s or Master s degree students wish to continue their unfinished studies after the right-to-study period has ended, they must apply to HAMK for the right to regain the student status after a minimum absence of one semester. The Vice Rector may grant the students, upon application, the right to study in order for them to complete their studies, if no more than half of the total extent of studies has not yet been completed. The maximum period of the granted time is two semesters. The student will be charged an application fee of 35 euros. The fee is based on Government decree application 1230/2009. HAMK issues certificates for completed Bachelor s and Master s degrees and certificates for completed studies. HAMK also issues participation certificates and transcripts of records.
