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 former student of Metropolia 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. All the academic terms when the student did not have a right to study because he or she failed to register will be considered as terms of absence. In the event that all the permitted terms of absence have been used, absences due to failing to register will count towards the period of the right to study.

A student whose study right has expired but has remaining study right, can apply for regranting the right to study and pay the fee 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).

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. A fee of 50 euros will be charged for processing the application.

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.

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

A former student of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences who has started his or her studies on or after 1 August 2015 and who has not completed 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 (Act on the Amendment of the Universities of Applied Sciences Act (325/2015), section 32).

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.

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.

A former student of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences who has started his or her studies before 1 August 2015 and lost his or her right to study due to failure to register for the academic year, the expiry of his or her period of the right to study or some other reason, will be instructed to apply for admission through the joint application process or the separate application process, and he or she will be granted a new right to study for a period determined by the university of applied sciences.
