Study Rights

Degree Students

When selecting new students for studies leading to a basic degree, i.e. Bachelor’s or Master’s degree, the right to study is granted for both lower and higher university degrees, or, in the case of Master’s degree programmes, only for higher university degree. The students are admitted to degree studies, to study one major, or a degree or Master’s programme.

Changing the Specialisation

Upon application, students have the right Muutos.jpgto change their field of specialisation (former major subject) to another field specialisation (chemistry, physics or biology) within the Master's Programme in Nanoscience in our faculty.

Elective Studies Study Rights

All students in the Finnish university system have to take certain amount of studies from a subject in another degree program than their own degree program. Elective studies can be taken from another field of the Faculty or from an entirely other field outside the Faculty. Most Basic Studies level courses/ modules can be taken freely as elective studies, though in some subjects you need to apply for a study right. However, the elective studies delivered in English language are limited.

Separate Study Right

People who are not students of the University of Jyväskylä, i.e. do not have a study right, are allowed to take individual courses as “extra students” for a nominal fee of 15 euros per credit (2017). Application for study right as an extra student can be submitted to the Faculty, and it can be approved if the studies in question are connected to the applicant’s current work, earlier studies or studies s/he is taking at another university. You can apply for separate studies by an informal application in address study-sci@jyu.fi.
