Graduating as a Bachelor

You may apply for graduation through the personal study plan (HOPS) inside Sisu. Graduation is applied for based on the current version of your primary study plan. The study plan is mandatory, because degree certificates in Sisu are based on the student’s plan and the graduation application made through it.

When you have finished all the studies for the Bachelor's degree:

  1. Check that your study plan is up to date and approved in Sisu. If there is a problem with approval or the study plan, please get in touch with Learning Services as soon as possible.
  2. Apply for graduation in Sisu. To apply for graduation, fill out the graduation request. The deadline for submitting your application is also the date of graduation on your degree certificate (see the schedule below). All your grades needs to be registered before you request graduation. Note that you must be enrolled as present on your date of graduation. View the Sisu graduation

Continuing to a master's programme

You are entitled to continue your studies at the master’s level after completing the bachelor’s degree. Below you will find the master's programmes to which you are directly entitled to enter. When you submit your graduation request on Sisu, you will also select the master’s programme you want to continue in. If you are tuition fee liable student, you can also inform on graduation request if you want to apply for a scholarship for your master's studies. You can find the application criteria and more details on the scholarship page.

Students have under certain conditions the opportunity to continue their studies in another school/ master's programme than their original study right was valid for. You can find more information about that option in the end of the page.
