This website provides information for the students who are absent (non-attendant) from their studies and therefore do not have access to Xamk systems. In addition you can find a link for the application for restoration of study right on this website. The application is available for students who have lost their study right because of a neglected enrolment.

Present (attending) students at Xamk will find all instructions for the studies on our Student intranet, it can be accessed with personal student user name.

Enrolment for attendance and non-attendance

Academic year is the time between 1.8. and 31.7. In order to keep the right to study and carry out studies, students have to enrol as present or absent every academic year, according to the academic year timetable. You can change your enrolment status for the spring semester on the dates which are listed in the academic year timetable. It is not possible to change the status after the enrolment has closed.

Only a student who has registered as present has the right to pursue studies, to have credits entered in the record of credits and to receive guidance related to the studies.

Student, who has not enrolled for presence or absence every academic year by the deadline, loses his/her right to study.  Student, who has failed to enrol, has a right to apply for restoration of study right from the head of the department. It is not possible to restore the study right if the student’s study time has ended.

Students enrol for presence and absence through the Peppi system starting from the academic year 2017-2018.

Continuing the studies after non-attendance

When you are returning to your studies after the non-attendance, please contact your mentor teacher in order to check your study plan or the student affairs office on your campus in other study-related practical issues.

Information about non-attendance

Student enrolled for non-attedance

  • cannot pursue studies during the time of non-attendance (chargeable open UAS studies are possible, registering the credits as replacements or accreditations as part of the degree after enrolment for attendance only).
  • has no right for the KELA financial aid or the daily supported meal.
  • is also not entitled to any student benefits (e.g. travel discounts, use of the school’s internet facilities etc.).
  • Student enrolled for non-attendance for the whole academic year can return to continue his/her studies at the beginning of the next semester by enrolling for attendance. In this case, the mentor teacher must be contacted in order to check the study plan. The above mentioned case normally causes problems for the student: certain courses might have been rescheduled, the degree programme can be ended totally or it can be realised after years only.

Student enrolled for non-attendance is him/herself responsible for the continuation and progress of the studies because the courses offered to students can vary from one academic year to another.

Because of changes in the legislation, the student’s right to enrol for non-attendance is different depending on the time when he/she was admitted to study (before or after summer 2015).

Enrolment for non-attendance for the student admitted before summer 2015

A student can enrol for non-attendance for the maximum of two academic years (4 semesters); the enrolment must, however, take place in every academic year. This notified time of non-attendance will not be included in the maximum time of taking the studies.

Enrolment for absence for the student admitted during and after summer 2015

A student can enrol for non-attendance for the maximum of one academic year (2 semesters), except for statutory reasons (completion of military service, civilian service or voluntary military service for women in Finland; or.maternity, paternity or parental leave). There is no maximum time for non-attendance on the basis of these legal grounds.
