Application for regranting of study entitlement for Vocational Teacher Education students whose study right has expired.

NB The instructions and contact information on this page are for the students in the Vocational Teacher Education. If you are a degree student, please see the instructions for degree students on regranting of study entitlement.

Please check if your study right is still valid:

  • If your study right is still valid but about to expire, you should apply for an extension of study time
  • If your study right has expired, you can apply for regranting of study entitlement on the e-form. Receiving an approved decision on regranting of study entitlement is not automatic. The decision is made by the competence area director of teacher education. According to the Government decree (1440/2014), a handling fee of 50 EUR is applicable. More information on this page.
  • NB a student who has resigned of their own accord should apply through the application process to vocational teacher education institutions.

Study right expired due to not finishing the studies

According to section 32 of the Universities of Applied Sciences Act (932/2014), students who have started their studies on 1 August 2015 or thereafter, and who have not finished their studies during the timeframe of their study entitlement or during a discretionary extension of the study entitlement, may apply to have their study entitlement regranted without taking part in the student admissions procedure. The decision on regranting the study entitlement is made by the competence area director of teacher education. The student may be asked to provide further clarifications to support the decision on regranting the study entitlement. The study entitlement may be regranted for a maximum of two semesters. A student whose study entitlement has been regranted does not have the right to register as non-attending nor the possibility to apply for a discretionary extension of the study entitlement. (Haaga-Helia degree regulations chapter 2, section 1.)

NB students whose study right has begun before 1 August 2015 apply through the student selection, through the application process to vocational teacher education institutions. 

Study right expired due to not having enrolled to a new study group

A student who has lost their study entitlement due to not having enrolled to a new study group or not registering as absent may apply to the competence area director of teacher education to have their study entitlement regranted without participating in the student admissions procedure (Act 325/2015, section 32). The application is subject to a handling fee of 50 EUR in accordance with the Decree (1440/2014, section 3). (Haaga-Helia degree regulations 11§.)
