After the student has completed all the required studies, they can apply for a Degree Certificate. Degree certificates are issued by the School, once a week during the terms (excluding summer and Christmas holidays). Students should hand in the application for a degree certificate at least two weeks before the desired date of graduation. At this point, all studies should be in the study register, including thesis and maturity test, and they should have gotten final grades for all modules of a minimum of 15 ECTS.
All students of the international degree programmes receive two copies of the degree certificate, one in Finnish and one in English. In addition, all students are issued with a Diploma Supplement for international use, free of charge.
