Discontinuation of the right to study

A student will lose the right to study for the following reasons:

  • failing to register as attending or non-attending by the deadline
  • failing to finish his or her studies within the period prescribed by law and any discretionary extension period granted
  • resigning at his or her own request
  • failing to pay the tuition fee for the academic year by the deadline given by the university of applied sciences, if he or she is obliged to pay such a fee, and not registering as non-attending.

Regranting the right to study after neglecting to register for the academic year or pay the tuition fee for the academic year or resigning

In accordance with section 32 of the Universities of Applied Sciences Act (932/2014), a student who has lost his or her right to study after neglecting to register as attending or non-attending for the academic year or after resigning may reapply to the university of applied sciences for admission without participating in the student selection procedure.

The right to study can be regranted if the student has the possibility to complete the remaining studies within the period of the right to study. Metropolia considers the academic terms spent and those remaining when granting a period of the right to study.

If a student who is obliged to pay tuition fees fails to pay the tuition fee for an academic year by the deadline without registering as non-attending, he or she may reapply for the right to study in accordance with the procedure above.

Regranting the right to study after the end of the period of the right to study or a discretionary extension period

According to section 32 of the Universities of Applied Sciences Act (932/2014), a student who has not finished his or her degree during the period of the right to study or the discretionary extension period may reapply to the university of applied sciences for admission without participating in the student selection procedure.

The student may be asked for further explanation to support the decision on regranting the right to study.

The right to study is regranted for a maximum of two academic terms, beginning from the start of the following term. A student whose right to study has been regranted may not register as non-attending nor apply for a discretionary extension period.

How to apply:

The application is filled and the fee paid online at http://maksut.metropolia.fi. A fee of 50 euros will be charged for processing the application, in accordance with section 3 of the Government Decree on Fees Charged by the Universities of Applied Sciences (1440/2014).

A student may request a rectification of a decision concerning his or her application for regranting the right to study from Metropolia's Legal Protection Committee in writing within 14 days of receiving notice of the decision.

If the student is dissatisfied with the Legal Protection Committee's decision, he or she may lodge an appeal against it with the Helsinki Administrative Court. The period of appeal is 30 days as of the date on which a notification of the decision was received.
