    You do not have to send a request for course approval in Peppi, the enrolment system. After you have enrolled for courses you can send your Learning Agreement for approval.

    Learning Agreement

    Learning agreement is a contract between the exchange student, the student's home institution and Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences. It ensures that the exchange studies at Haaga-Helia will be recognised at the student's home institution. You can use your home institution's learning agreement, Online Learning Agreement (OLA) or Haaga-Helia's form available below. Please make sure all of the fields are filled out, especially the name of the sending institution, institution contacts and semester dates.

    Please fill in the learning agreement only after you have registered for the courses in the Peppi system. You can also bring the learning agreement with you to the orientation for signing.

    Transcript of records (list of grades)

    You can Download your official electronic transcript of records (list of grades and completed courses) from Peppi > My Studies > Certificates for Student up to a month after you have finished your exchange.

    We are using an electronic transcript of records. The electronic transcript of records is a PDF document equipped with a digital signature to confirm their authenticity and integrity. The digital signature replaces handwritten signatures and stamps. Electronic documents are official only in their digital form and not as paper-printed copies. They cannot be modified, as any change made to the file invalidates the digital signature.

    How to check the document’s validity 

    Haaga-Helia does not send transcripts of records to exchange students or to their home universities anymore. The students are responsible for downloading the transcripts of records themselves.

    The electronic transcript/certificate should be a valid alternative in all situations where signed and stamped paper documents are used. In case a stamped and signed version of the transcript is needed this can be requested separately from exch(a)
