If you did not finish your studies during your study right period or the extended period, you can apply for restitution of the right to study for your unfinished degree or a corresponding degree. If your right to study is restituted, you will be registered as attending for the granted study right period and cannot register as absent.
You can apply for a temporary reinstatement of the right to study, if:
- you started your studies 1.8.2015 or after, and have not finished your degree
- you need ca. 60 ECTS to finish your degree (or 30 ECTS for a Master’s degree)
If you need more than 60 ECTS to finish your degree, you can complete courses through the open UAS and apply for restitution of the right to study after you have enough credits. Learn about the open UAS
There is continuous admission for the temporary restitution of the right to study, so you can apply outside the joint application period. The right to study is granted for a maximum of two semesters (one full academic year) and is usually reinstated starting from the beginning of the next semester.
Applying and the handling fee
You must apply for the temporary restitution of the right to study with a separate application form. Before you submit your application, you should discuss your situation with the study counsellor of your school. If it is established that you should apply for restitution of your right to study, fill out the application form and submit it with the required attachments to the KAMK study office.
With your application you need a current transcript of records and a certificate of resignation from your previous studies. You also need to pay 50 € handling fee (A1440/2014 § 3) through the KAMK online shop. The online shop can be found on the front page of KAMK website (Choose ’Erillinen opiskeluoikeus’). Students can appeal the decision to the KAMK board within 14 days of the notification of the decision.
