Transferring study attainments

Transferring study attainments between universities of applied sciences

This year transcripts of records are delivered in two different ways, depending on at which university of applied sciences you study. Read the instructions carefully and act accordingly.

1. Puro service:

In the service, higher education students can check their study attainments and degree information. The information is retrieved from the national data supply of higher education institutions (VIRTA). Check your summer study attainments in the Puro service and submit them through the service to be entered in the study register of your own higher education institution.

At the moment, students of the following cooperation institutions can retrieve and send study attainments:

  • Centria University of Applied Sciences
  • HUMAK University of Applied Sciences
  • Häme University of Applied Sciences
  • Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences
  • South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences (XAMK)
  • Kajaani University of Applied Sciences
  • Karelia University of Applied Sciences
  • Lahti University of Applied Sciences
  • Laurea University of Applied Sciences
  • Metropolia University of Applied Sciences
  • Oulu University of Applied Sciences
  • Saimaa University of Applied Sciences
  • Savonia University of Applied Sciences
  • Turku University of Applied Sciences
  • Vaasa University of Applied Sciences
  • Yrkeshögskolan Arcada
  • Yrkeshögskolan Novia

The instructions on retrieving study attainments in the Puro service are available here.

2. Printed transcripts of records:

Students whose own university of applied sciences OR the university of applied sciences where they’re completing summer studies at is NOT involved in the Puro service can receive their transcripts of records in printed format to the home address they have registered at the enrolment stage.  This takes place automatically.

After having received the transcript of records, submit it to your own university of applied sciences. If necessary, you can ask for more information from the contact person of the summer study portal at your own university of applied sciences (the list is available here).

These universities of applied sciences are not involved in the Puro service:

  • Satakunta University of Applied Sciences
  • Tampere University of Applied Sciences (NOTE! In terms of summer studies offered by Tampere University of Applied Sciences, the students of other universities of applied sciences proceed according to section 1 and submit their study attainments to their home university through the Puro service. Students of Tampere University of Applied Sciences who have completed summer studies elsewhere act according to section 2 and get a printed transcript of records to their home address to be sent forward.)
