Demarcation of study time

Demarcation of Study Time

​The targeted completion time for higher (Master's) degree is two academic years. Students accepted for a Master's degree have the right to complete the degree two years past the targeted completion time.

Passive register

The passive register regulation only applies to degree students who have been accepted to the University of Turku in spring 2005 or earlier.

According to the current regulation of the University of Turku (Turun yliopiston opintojohtosääntö, 8 §), degree and doctoral students’ right to study may be transferred to the passive register if they do not pursue studies actively.

A passive study right can be re-activated. In this case the student may be required to pay a re-registration fee. For more instructions on how to apply for a re-activation of the study right, please contact
