If you need to take supplementary studies, you will be informed of this during student admissions or immediately at the beginning of your studies. In that case, your supplementary studies will be compulsory.
Degree or non-degree studies?
Supplementary studies can be part of your degree (degree studies) or not included in it (non-degree studies), depending on your degree programme. If you are studying for a doctoral degree, supplementary studies are always non-degree studies.
Your right to pursue supplementary studies will stay in force as long as your right to study towards a degree is in force. The right to pursue supplementary studies does not require you to enrol for the academic year.
Supplementary studies and HOPS
Your right to pursue supplementary studies enables you to create a separate personal study plan (HOPS) on Sisu. Use this HOPS to register for the courses you need to complete as supplementary studies. Simply create a HOPS in the same way you created your HOPS for your degree studies.
