Extract from criminal records
Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences will request accepted students to produce a criminal history extract at the beginning of the studies because during the studies the students are involved working with children substantially. Your criminal record extract will only include criminal record information that is thought to have special significance to your work with children.
Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences Act 932/2014 section 34 (4)
At the request of the university of applied sciences, the student must provide an extract of any or all entries about him or her in the criminal records referred to in section 6(3) of the Criminal Records Act (770/1993), for the purpose of an assessment of the right to study, as referred to in section 33(2), if the student is given assignments in studies or in practical training relating to the studies which substantially require working with minors.
Present your criminal history extract on the first day of orientation week at Student Affairs Office.
