Reinstatement of the Right to Study

If you have lost your right to study at Novia UAS, you can apply for reinstatement of right to study in order to complete your degree. This concerns degree studies only, not studies at the open UAS or similar.

Reasons for loss of right to study:

  • you have not registered as attending or absent within the stipulated time,
  • you have not applied for extended duration of studies while your right to study was still in force,
  • you were not granted extended duration of studies although you applied for it.

If necessary, you can apply for reinstatement of right to study and extended duration of studies with the same application.

When can I apply for reinstatement?

You can apply for reinstatement any time during the year but please notice that the right of study can usually be reinstated from the beginning of the following term. This means that if you lose your right to study in September and apply to have it reinstated, you can usually regain your right to study from the beginning of January (beginning of the following term). If you lose your right to study in January and apply to have it reinstated, you can usually regain your right to study from the beginning of August (beginning of the following term). Also, applications are not processed during summer.

I have lost my right to study in beginning/middle of my studies

If you have lost your right to study at Novia UAS in the beginning of your studies, or at a point when it is still possible for you to complete the remaining studies and graduate within the time remaining of your right to study, you can apply for reinstatement of your right to study.

I have lost my right to study in the end of my studies

  • If you have lost your right to study at Novia UAS in the end of your studies, you can apply for reinstatement of your right to study if it is still possible for you to complete the remaining studies and graduate within the time remaining of your right to study or within the extension of study right granted. You can apply for reinstatement of right to study and extended duration of studies on the same application if necessary.
  • If you have lost you right to study at Novia UAS intentionally or by mistake at a stage when it is no longer possible to graduate within the time remaining of your right to study nor within a possible extension, is it recommended that you complete the remaining studies at the Open UAS at Novia UAS. During this time you do not have right to complete a degree at Novia UAS (non-degree student). Once you have completed the remaining studies at the Open UAS, or the remaining studies can be completed within a maximum of one academic year, you can apply for reinstatement of your right to study for a maximum of one academic year to complete the degree studies and graduate.

Handling fee

The application for reinstatement of right to study is subject to a fee. A handling fee of 50 euros must be paid before your application is processed. You can pay the handling fee via Paytrail.

Application

The application for reinstatement of right to study is made on a fixed form.

Your application is sent to Student Services which prepares the case and verifies that you have paid the handling fee.  The decision to reinstate the right to study is made by the President on the basis of proposal by the Head of Student Services. In some cases, a statement by the Head of Degree Programme/Head of Curriculum is requested. You will receive a copy of the decision to the e-mail address you provide in your application (alternatively by post if you state it in your application).

Further information

You can find information about reinstatement of right to study and the handling fee in the degree regulations (§§ 30-31). If you have any questions, please contact Student Services.
