Student in Open Studies

Starting your Open studies

How do I get instructions for studies? Where can I get the username for Jamk systems? Where does the study take place? From whom can I get a form for the TE office? How long can I study?

The course letter will be e-mailed

Before starting the studies, you will be e-mailed a course letter, which contains the confirmation of course commencement, information on practical course arrangements and contact information. The letter instructs you to go through the steps mentioned below before starting your studies. Please note! Study letters are often directed to spam, so please check your spam email as well and mark the message as not spam.

Things to do before the studies

1. Get your Jamk username

Please, read the Jamk network usage rules and instructions to receive a user code. Get your personal username and password from the Self service password reset after you have received the study letter in your e-mail. The service is used with your online banking credentials. If you do not have online banking credentials, please contact us.

2. Familirialize yourself with Jamk systems and practices

a) Take the test to determine the entry level of your digital skills and familiarise yourself with the Jamk student’s digital learning skills material.

b) Sign in to Peppi, Student's Desktop. There you can see your own information and schedules (on calendar click Own realizations button). From the Atomi service, you can download an electronically signed study certificate or transcript of records.

c) Read your Jamk e-mail (O365) for potential announcements concerning your studies. Your email address is: Read your e-mail also during your studies or use automatic forwarding to another e-mail you use.

d) Familiarize yourself with studying and benefits and services in Open Studies

4. For study path students: pre-assignment and orientation week

If you are starting a study path, check out the new student's intra for the orientation week program (Field-specific information). In intra you will also find a link to a pre-assignment that must be done before the start of studies. Course registrations are made under supervision during the orientation week / days.

5. Get started!

Join the studies on schedule. Distance studies are mainly pursued in the Moodle e-learning environment. The course environment opens just before the commencement of the studies. You can practice using the e-learning environment with the Student Moodle Orientation course in Moodle. See the instructions on Moodle.

Enjoy your studies!

Right to Study

The duration of studies is determined in the course information. The studies must be completed in the schedule specified at the beginning of the studies. The user name is until the end of the semester.

It is important to participate in both face-to-face and online teaching right from the start of your studies. If you have an insurmountable obstacle, contact your teacher in advance.

If your studies are not completed, you will need to register for another implementation and pay the study fee again. Your right to study can also be denied if you have unpaid study fees for Jamk Open Studies.
