Extension of Study Right


Basic study rigth given in admission is total 4 years for the WCE master's degree programme. Four years is calculated starting from 1st August of first study year (enrolling year) until 31st July after 4 years. If WCE student cannot graduate he/she has to apply study right extension from the UO rector of education.

Student has to explain why his/her studies has delayed. Also favoring statement of course organizer is needed, which is given by the programme coordinator Dr. Kari Kärkkäinen. Extension is typically given one (6 months) or two semesters (one year).

You can find more about the study right extension rules from the page, and you can find the application form needed from this page.

Required attachements for WCE study right extension application are as follows:

  • A copy of transcript of studies.
  • An up-to-date detailed study plan specifying the studies to be completed within a given schedule. The plan must be approved by your PSP (personal study plan) instructor Dr. Kari Kärkkäinen. The plan must indicate which courses will be completed as well as the timescale during which they will be completed.
  • In addition, a disclosure on the reasons as to why the completion of studies has been delayed must also be attached to the application, along with any relevant attachments relating to these (for example, a medical certificate).

When study rigth expires, student's user licence for UO computer systems like Weboodi, Optima etc. expires immediately, which complicates student's work substantially. Because of that, the application for extended study rigth has to be submitted well before the study rigth expires (at leat two months because of processing delay in administration).
