The extent of a degree is given in credits (in Finnish "opintopiste", short form "op"). The average input of 1600 working hours needed for studies of one academic year corresponds to 60 credits. One credit corresponds to one ECTS credit.
The Finnish system of academic education gives students a lot of freedom to plan and schedule their studies. This means that planning the schedule for an academic year, i.e. choosing the subjects and course units and keeping the schedule intensive throughout the studies, requires a lot of activity and responsibility on the part of the student. New degree students will be given information on how to schedule their studies by the appropriate school.
