Already-admitted Students and the Educational Reform

ATTENTION! The transition period related to the educational reform has ended. Degrees that are based on a main subject can not be completed anymore. Students study rights will be changed degree programme based as students enrol for the academic year 2015-16. Web-pages regarding to Educational Reform will not be updated anymore.

An already-admitted student is a student who was granted the right to study before 2012. A right to study granted in 2012 or later is always a right to study in one of the new degree programmes.

The new programme scheme started on 1 August 2012, and the transition period was three years: from 1 August 2012 to 31 July 2015. During this time, already-admitted students had a change complete their degrees under the old scheme. 

Transferring was advisable in the following cases:

  1. If you have started your studies only recently.

  2. If you know you will not earn your Bachelor's degree before the transition period ends.

  3. If you know you will not earn your Master's degree before the transition period ends.

  4. If you want to graduate from a degree programme instead of graduating in your old major.

Please note that the transfer cannot be undone.

If you have any questions on the academic reorganisation or transferring to the new programme scheme, please e-mail koulutusuudistus (at) If need be, we will forward your message to someone who can help you.

Complete all your unfinished courses and modules!

During the transition period, all courses, seminars, etc. will be held as set out in the new degree programmes' curriculum guides. This means that even if you are still under the old scheme, you will take the same courses as the students studying in the new degree programme.

If you have any uncompleted modules, you must contact your school's staff to find out how you can replace missing courses. To determine which courses correspond to each other, curriculum guides include the following information:

  1. Which old courses correspond to which new courses. This is important if you are transferring to a new programme, so that staff can tell what the courses you have already taken correspond to in the new programme.

  2. Which new courses correspond to which old courses. This is important if you want to earn your degree according to the old curriculum guide. This way, you can see how the new courses fit with your already-completed studies and find out what courses you are still missing.
