Metropolia is applying for educational provisions for the degree of Music Educator and the new degree of Construction Architect

23.09.2013

Metropolia has decided on the content of the operating licence application to be submitted to the Ministry of Education and Culture at the end of September.

From the current degree programmes, training leading to the Drama Instructor’s and Dental Technologist’s degrees was not included in the application. The main reason for this was the high cost of providing education for the degree programmes in relation to the income generated by the new funding model. The current students of these degree programmes will complete their studies in accordance with the curriculum. New students who enrolled this autumn will also be able to complete their studies.

Metropolia aims for an educational provision for the Music Educator’s degree

Contrary to earlier views, Metropolia will apply for an educational provision for the degree title of Music Educator. This will ensure that Metropolia maintains its competence especially in early musical education and group pedagogy, which are needed in the Greater Helsinki area.

Under the new operating model, applicants for the Musician’s and Music Educator’s degree will apply for a joint degree programme called Music, which will have 60 study places. After their joint studies, the students can apply for four different major subjects, two of which will lead to the Musician’s degree (Musical Content Producer, Musician) and two to the Music Educator’s degree (Early Musical Education, Music and Vocal Teacher).

New educational provision: Construction Architect

One of the new educational provisions Metropolia is applying for is the Construction Architect's degree. The condition in the application for this educational provision is that the government grants additional funding for the extra costs of starting this education.

The application for the new operating licence and educational provisions will be submitted by the end of September. The Finnish Government will decide on the operating permits for the universities of applied sciences in December 2013. The permit will take effect on 1 January 2014.
