Student in Open Studies

About Open Studies

Where can I see my credits? Can I get my old studies approved? Can I have guidance? Where is the template for reports?

Enrolling for the studies

Open Studies students always enrol for their studies on the website.

Enrolment for a study path student

If you have enrolled and been accepted as a study path student, you will have the right to register for the courses included in the path in Peppi. In Peppi PLP, you can see the courses included in your study path - register for these. In addition to these courses, you can enrol in other studies too, but we cannot guarantee access to these.

Completing a course

The first contact or the opening of an online course will cover the course implementation and assessment criteria. During the first contact, the date of the possible exam is also agreed, and the end of the course is announced, after which the assignments are no longer accepted.

Open Studies have the same contents and assessment criteria as in degree studies. Course attainments will be assessed according to the normal practices of Jamk University of Applied Sciences.

You can follow your studies in Peppi. During the validity of your study right, you can also apply for an electronically certified transcript of records from Peppi's Atomi service (see instructions). After the end of the right to study, you can order a transcript of records here.

Recognition of prior learning and experience

If you are a study path student or do another large module in the Open Studies, you can apply for the recognition of prior learning and experience. Please note that the open study path defines how many credits can be accredited of the whole.

The student pays the study fee for the studies for which they apply for accreditation. Studies are included in the study path fee.

Rules, principles and quality

In Open Studies  Jamk's common rules and principles will be followed. Familiarize yourself with the degree regulations and pedagogical and ethical principles.

Jamk's quality management is based on a quality system where the student's role is central. You can influence the quality of teaching with the help of course feedback collected after each course.
