TYY MAKES STATEMENT ON DRAFT OF UNIVERSITY OF TURKU REGULATIONS
The new regulations concerning study affairs will go into force at the new University of Turku on 1 August 2010. A work group set up by the central administration has prepared new study regulations. The work group has been drawing up sufficiently concrete and detailed regulations that are, at the same time, general enough, so that there would be no need for continuous changes to be made. It would also be as broadly adaptable as possible to accommodate the diverse education of the university.
