Standard Study Period and Maximum Study Period

The standard study period and maximum study period for a degree programme are determined by the scope of the programme (ECTS credits) in the following way:

  • The scope of the programme 60 ECTS credits: The standard study period is 2 years and the maximum study period 3 years.
  • The scope of the programme 90 ECTS credits: The standard study period is 3 years and the maximum study period 4 years.
  • The scope of the programme 210 ECTS credits: The standard study period is 3 and a half year and the maximum study period 4 and a half year.
  • The scope of the programme 240 ECTS credits: The standard study period is 4 years and the maximum study period 5 years.

If you do not complete your studies in the standard study period, you have the right to continue your studies for one year without submitting a separate application.

You will no longer be entitled to study if you do not complete your degree within the maximum study period. Only the student services manager can grant an extension for two semesters.

The standard and maximum study periods for students expire either on 31 July or 31 December. Please, check your own standard and maximum study periods in Peppi.
