Instructions regarding the home university

Length of the home university’s endorsement process

The application will be handled within one month of its submission.

 Endorsement of the application

Lappeenranta University of Technology uses the electronic Joopas Application System, as do other universities with the exception of the University of Eastern Finland, University of Lapland, University of Jyväskylä and University of Oulu. The system can be accessed at http://haku.joopas.fi with your own university username and password. As for universities that do not use the electronic application system, a form from the JOOPAS portal (www.joopas.fi) must be printed and filled out. Find out about the application deadline of the target university, and prepare and send your application through the electronic system at least one month before the deadline. Attach your study plan (degree structure), course descriptions of the courses for which you are applying, and a transcript of records to your application. If you are applying to a university that does not use the electronic system, submit your printed application and appendices to your faculty coordinator for flexible study right issues (see Contact details of coordinators).

  • The application will be handled within one month of its submission.
  • If additional information is required, the applicant will be contacted by e-mail. The information requested should be provided without delay, but no later than a week after the e-mail was sent.
  • If the application is approved by the home university, it is automatically sent to the target university.

Home university approval criteria and preparation of the study plan

  • The application must be properly filled out and submitted on time. Appendices: 1) study plan, 2) course descriptions of courses applied for, 3) official transcript of records.
  • The application must be well-grounded and the courses must be appropriate for the student’s LUT degree without equivalents in the LUT curriculum.
  • The university can approve a maximum of 20-25 ECTS credits of flexible study right courses for a student, depending on the degree programme.
  • The degree programmes make the final decision.
  • In addition to the general approval criteria, degree programmes have criteria of their own.

Preparation of the study plan: More information on the preparation of the study plan is available on your faculty and degree programme web sites and from your study coordinator.

Duration of the flexible study right

The flexible study right can be approved for a maximum of 2 years. Note! The flexible study right will expire if the student graduates from LUT.

Submission of the application

When the electronic application is submitted, it will be automatically forwarded to the faculty coordinator for flexible study right issues. If the target university does not use the electronic application system, a printed application must be submitted to your faculty coordinator at Lappeenranta University of Technology, P.O.Box 20, FI-53851 Lappeenranta, Finland.

Forwarding of the application to the target university

The electronic application will be forwarded directly to the coordinator in the home university and on to the target university. In other words, the applicant does not need to deliver it to the target university. Printed applications will be sent directly to the target university by the faculty in the home university.

Credit transfer

The student is responsible for providing the university with information on completed flexible study right courses. Only then can they be entered into the student’s records. An official transcript on the completed courses must be submitted to the LUT Student Affairs Office. Flexible study right courses will be marked in the register as “approved”.
