The time limits are:

  • 2 year Master’s degree programmes must be completed within the standard time frame + ½ year
  • 3 year Master’s degree programmes must be completed within the standard time frame + 1 year

Transitional arrangement for students enrolled before 1st September 2015

Students enrolled to a bachelor’s- or professional bachelor's degree programme

  • Students enrolled to a bachelor’s- or professional bachelor's degree programme 1. February 2015 must have completed their education not later than 28. February 2019.
  •  Students enrolled to a bachelor’s- or professional bachelor's degree programme before 1. February 2015 must have completed their education not later than 31. August 2018

 Students enrolled to a master’s degree programme

  • Students enrolled to a 2-year master’s degree programme must have completed their education not later than 28. February 2018.

  • Students enrolled to a 3-year master’s degree programme must have completed their education not later than 28. February 2019. 

If you are enrolled in a programme that previously has had rules regarding when you must have completed your studies, you should be aware that you are still bound by these rules if those rules indicate an earlier deadline for completion than the general rules. Consequently other deadlines might apply for you than those listed above. This particularly applies to students enrolled at a engineering programme, at a science programme, or students enrolled in the medical programme. It will be evident in your curriculum if this applies to you.

You may apply for exemption if one or more extraordinary conditions are evident. For further information please consult this page.
