4.2 Application for Degree Certificate

Things concerning the graduation you can read in the Graduation in Ouas page.

The student informs his/her target graduation day with a separate application in the system. With the application for degree certificate the student fills the graduating student feedback questionnaire (AVOP). When a student has answered the feedback questionnaire and has sent the application for degree certificate, the preparing of the student’s graduation (among others, the collecting of the degree based on PSP) will begin in the university.

Follow the instructions in the Graduation page.


5 Recognition and Accredidation of Learning (HOT)

The aim of recognition and accreditation of learning is to create a flexible and motivational learning path for students and to promote progress of studies according to the Personal Study Plan (PSP).

Concepts

By recognizing, the student parses his/hers acquired skills in relation to the learning objectives so that he can describe and demonstrate his/her skills. The head of the degree program or teacher(s) evaluates the student’s acquired skills in relation to the learning objectives.

 Accreditation means formal approval of the student’s competence.

 In HOT skills may have been acquired through studies completed elsewhere prior to or during current studies, work experience or leisure-related activities (see Image 1.). In HOT, the competence is approved as part of the degree, study module or course as compulsory, optional or fee-choice studies.

Options for recognizing acquired competence

Substitution means that the course in a student’s PSP will be replaced by another course, which has been completed elsewhere, or previously in OUAS, or by acquired skills during work or leisure. If there is no corresponding course in the PSP, the course or other acquired skills will be added as such (Inclusion).

Partial accreditation of studies

If the extent of a course in your PSP is larger than the course you propose for accreditation, then this is partial accreditation of studies.

Fill in the accreditation proposal for the course, address it to the teacher in charge of the course and attach a certificate of your previous studies.

The handler will add you to the course implementation if needed and will evaluate the part of the course that corresponds with the scope of the approved part of your study completed elsewhere.

From the NOTE-field in your HOT-decisions you’ll find which part of the course is assessed. This information doesn’t show in the transcript of records. From your Agreement Bank you’ll find which skills you will to demonstrate in order to complete the course. In your PSP you can also see agreements attached to the course. Once you have completed these agreements, your teacher will evaluate them as part of the course implementation and finally evaluates the whole course.

Checking Document Authenticity

1.1 Atomi Validator

You can validate electronically signed document by Atomi Validator -service.

1.2 Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

To check the authenticity of the document’s electronic signature, open the electronic document with, for example, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. By default, Adobe Acrobat Reader DC does not recognize the root certificate of the Population Register Center (CTR), which causes the software to declare the signer unknown.

You will be able to add the root certificate of the Population Register Center (CTR) to the trusted certificates by importing the root certificate of the CTR according to the following instructions.

  1. Download the root certificate of the Population Register Center (CTR) from this website: https://vrk.fi/ca-varmenteet clink on VRK Gov. Root CA –text (Image 1.). The root certificate file (vrkrootc.crt) is stored on your computer. (Your browser may consider the root certificate file to be harmful, but allow your browser to save the file.)
