Rules and Regulations

The legislation sets the grounds for the education as well as for students rights. In addition, Hanken has set rules for the degree education and for various processes concerning study affairs.

Hanken's Degree Regulations is the principal document on the requirements for the degrees, while the Rules of procedure concerning studies and examination deal more with processes. The Degree Regulations have been revised 1.1.2020 (an updated translation is on its way) and the Rules of procedure concerning studies and examination have been revised in June 2020.

The Rules of procedure also include specific rules that apply during the corona pandemic.

The Universities Act sets the rules for Finnish universities and students' rights. The Government Decree on University Degrees sets the national degree regulations (all revisions are not available in English).

There are student representatives i all the decision-making bodies concerning study affairs: the Board, Academic Councils, department councils and work groups. The Student Union guards your interests, and you can always contact the Student Union's executive board or the students representants in Hanken's decision-making boards if you wish to influence or have questions about the decisions that have been made.
