Instructions regarding the home university

Length of the home university’s endorsement process

The application will be viewed in the students own degree program department/study program. The endorsement process at your home university will take approximately four weeks.

Endorsement of the application

Students at the University of the Arts fill out the applications for flexible studies online in the Joopas service. The academy’s contact person for flexible studies sends the application to the student’s department/study program.  

When the department/study program endorses an application it is committed to pay for the flexible studies. At the same time it is confirmed that the studies can be included in the student’s degree.  

All universities do not use the online application form and the Joopas service. If you are applying for studies at one of the universities below you must use a paper form (https://confluence.csc.fi/display/JOO/Paperinen+hakulomake):

  • University of Eastern Finland
  • University of Jyväskylä
  • University of Oulu
  • University of Lapland

Home university approval criteria and preparation of the study plan

Flexible studies must be included as a part of the student’s individual study plan. Discuss flexible studies early on with your student counselor or professor.

The studies must be suited for the student’s minimum standard degree when it comes to the subject matter and extend of the studies. Flexible study rights are only endorsed for studies that are not available at the home university.

Departments/study programs endorse flexible study rights within their own recourses.

Duration of the flexible study right

Study rights are mainly endorsed for the term/terms when the studies take place. The maximum duration of a flexible study right is two academic years. The host university determines the duration of the study right.

The study right only applies to the courses that are agreed upon. The study right ends at the latest when the student graduates.  

Submission of the application

Flexible study applications are filled out online in the Joopas service.

Forwarding of the application to the target university

An application that is endorsed at the home university is automatically sent to the host university in the Joopas service. The host university makes the final decision on the flexible study right. Students are informed of the decision through the Joopas service (the universities that use a paper form send mail/email).

Credit transfer

An application that is endorsed at the home university is automatically sent to the host university in the Joopas service. The host university makes the final decision on the flexible study right. Students are informed of the decision through the Joopas service (the universities that use a paper form send mail/email).
