Providing a criminal record
Please note that students admitted to the University in 2012 or later may be requested to provide an extract from the criminal records for the assessment of their ability to study and do practices. Such an extract may be requested only from students whose studies include practical training or other activities involving work with minors.
The extract will be requested before the beginning of the practical training or other activity. You must present the document, in person, to Jani Haapakoski (ITE, KE225), Tiia Autio (EDGLO, KE224-1) or Niina Impiö (LET). To ensure the safety of minors, it is necessary to ascertain that the student about to begin practical training has no criminal record of certain serious crimes (sex offence, murder, aggravated assault and battery, aggravated burglary and robbery and narcotics offence).
