Dear Exchange Students,

Those of you who are still in Turku we would like to remind you of some important matters to take care of before you leave. 

PLEASE NOTE: Student Centre Disco will be closed till the end of July.

CHECKLIST

“CHECKOUT” AT THE INTERNATIONAL OFFICE

Send by email to international@utu.fi :

  1. the filled departure form. Please add the courses too that you are completing online to UTU
  2. your boarding pass/ travel ticket to show when you left Finland
  3. If you have the departure form or any other documents from your home university please do not fill it beforehand but send it too to international@utu.fi
  4. We’ll add to the Letter of Confirmation that the online courses at UTU continued till the end of May 2020.
  5. Remember to update your address in Nettiopsu too where to send your final transcript of record when it is completed and your Letter of Confirmation of your exchange period.
    If you are a European Erasmus + student, the transcript will be sent to the address you have in NettiOpsu.
    If you come from a partner university outside of Europe, the transcript will be sent to your home university.
    The transcripts of ISEP students will be sent to the ISEP Global Office.

Depending on when we’ll be back at the office you’ll get the documents printed and sent by mail during the summer at the latest.

Be prepared that at home you will be in quarantine for 2 weeks according to the instructions of your home country.

ABOUT COURSES

  • All written tasks should be completed before you leave - teachers are not obliged to read any work that has been submitted too late.
  • You cannot complete courses after your study right expires on 31 July 2020.
  • Course grades and credits are usually registered within 3 weeks from the date of the exam or the submitted assignments' deadline. If they do not appear in NettiOpsu, please contact the teacher for the missing grades. This way you speed up the process of getting your final Transcript of Records.
  • You can access NettiOpsu until 31 July 2020.  

FEEDBACK

  • We would appreciate if you could give us feedback on your exchange experience at UTU by filling in our online questionnaire.
  • The form is very simple and quite short; it should only take you around 5-10 minutes to fill it in. Thank you!
