Support process

The application must be submitted to the Faculty for the support process by 31 March before 16:15 the latest during the spring semester and by 30 September before 16:15 during the autumn semester. These dates are valid regardless of whether the target university has a continuous application process or an application period that takes place twice a year.

Criteria for the support statement and preparing a study plan

The resources allocated for this purpose are scarce. Each department pays for the costs resulting from the supported studies. The departments process the applications based on case by case deliberation.

  • The intended studies must produce additional value for the degree.
  • The supported studies must be such that cannot be completed at the University of Oulu.
  • The studies must be included in the minimum extent of the degree.
