Graduation: Master's degree

A Master’s degree is a second cycle university degree and the scope is at least 120 credits (2 years of full-time study).
Studies leading to the master’s degree may include basic, subject and advanced studies, language and communication studies, interdisciplinary study projects, optional courses and internship improving expertise. The degree includes also a Master’s thesis (20 – 40 ECT), which is a research project prepared in the last studying year.

Graduation

Once all the required courses have been completed and added in the study register, you may apply for  the degree certificate in Peppi's Graduation -service. Remember to check your faculty’s schedule for graduations and register for Maturity Test.

When you are about to graduate, please check out in good time that your studies (your PSP in Peppi) and credits are there. After that, apply for degree certificate, diploma, in Peppi’s Graduation -service.

There are two phases in Graduation -service:

  1. reviewing
  2. finalizing.

In this first phase you will proceed straight to the degree certificate application, which is also the checking list for graduation. After you have sent your application, the officer will review your studies, your PSP in Peppi and credits. After that you get notification that you can send your application to be finalized.

In finalizing phase all information related to graduation will be reviewed and graduation date confirmed. After all your information has been processed, you get notification of the acceptance and confirmation of the graduation date. 

When your are applying for degree certificate at Peppi, you can apply for complementary study right also there.

N.B.! Students who graduate 2022/08/01 or later will receive the official degree certificate as Electronic degree certificate. In addition they will receive a paper copy of the degree certificate. Read further instructions by clicking the link below. Students who graduated before 1st of August will receive the official degree certificate as a paper version from the Academic Affairs Service Team.

For you

Faculty of Education

(Updated  8.9.2022)

 

Applying for the degree

The degree certificate application is completed in the Peppi Graduation -service (check the general info above, on top of the page).

Begin the graduation related process, such as making sure your PSP is up to date, in good time before the official graduation date. If necessary, please contact your Faculty academic affairs team for assistance (study.education@oulu.fi).

 

Remember the following:

  • FEdu students PSP’s do not need to be “approved” in Peppi. However, it is good to go through the HOPS with a tutor teacher/education designer prior to graduation to make sure the PSP is up to date.
  • Studies (such as minor studies or elective studies) have to be correctly placed on the PSP before beginning the graduation process.
  • Studies which will not be included in the degree can be left in the section “External studies module”

 

Delivering the degree certificate

An electronic degree certificate has been in use at the University of Oulu since 1.8.2022.

We will inform graduates personally when the degree certificate is available for download in the Atomi-service.

We will also inform graduates personally as to when the copy of the degree certificate is available for retrieval at the Compass Service point.
