CampusOnline and other joint studies

As Humak's student, you can also study online courses from other universities of applied sciences via the portal. CampusOnline is a joint digital study portal for Finnish universities of applied sciences, which brings together online courses from more than 20 universities of applied sciences. Humak also has other cooperation agreements on student exchange with universities such as the University of Jyväskylä and the University of Turku.

Sateenvarjon alla studies for Humak students

As Humak’s student, you can also study online courses from other universities of applied sciences via the portal. CampusOnline is a Finnish digital education portal that combines online courses from over 20 universities. Studying is free for all participating degree students (Bachelor’s and Master’s), Open UAS path students and exchange students. You can include credits for the studies completed through in your degree.

Studying at CampusOnline is particularly suitable if you want to complete your studies on a faster schedule, study during the summer, or complete your degree with studies not offered at Humak. Please note that as an Open UAS ‘Polku’ student, you cannot include CampusOnline studies in your studies, as they must be Humak studies in accordance with the criteria of Path studies.

In CampusOnline studies there is an ongoing transition to using Ripa, a nationwide cross-study service. Ripa means that you can register for the studies found in Humak’s cross-study offer of different networks directly in your own Peppi student’s desktop, and also the evaluations are transferred directly to your PSP without the eRPL procedure or sharing study path links. 

You can register to the studies offered by higher education insitutions using Ripa in CampusOnline in the same way as you would register for Humak’s own studies in Peppi. You can also easily find the CampusOnline offering in Peppi through your PSP. Familiarize yourself with the offering well in advance, so that you will be able to register in time for your studies.

Instructions on how to find CampusOnline studies in Peppi student’s desktop

If you have the right to participate in studies organized by another higher education institution, you will see cross-study functions automatically in your student’s desktop. First, log in to Peppi student’s desktop, go to your PSP and to the Selecting Studies tab. From the magnifying glass symbol in your PSP on the right side, you can search cross-study studies and add them to your PSP to your hops.

In the study search, you can filter cross-study studies by selecting cross-study filtering as shown in the image below. When you have found the study you want t add to your PSP, click Add to basket on the right side of the page.

After this, click Add selected to PSP to export the selected studies to your PSP.

Instructions for course enrollments

Registration for cross-study courses is done on the Enrollments tab of PSP in the same way as you would enroll to your other studies. You will see the open enrollments for the studies that you have added to your PSP automatically under the heading “Enrollment ongoing”. Enroll for the course using the Enroll button on the right side.

After clicking the Enroll button, a new window opens where you confirm the permission to transfer your enrollment and study data to another institution. You must click that you accept the transfer of your data and then click Continue to save your enrollment.

When you have enrolled to a course, the enrollment information automatically transfers to the other institution. You can see the status of your enrollment in your student’s desktop (Enrollment waiting for approval/Enrollment approved/ Enrollment rejected).

When your enrollment has been approved for the course, you will get a study right in the other institution and you will receive a message from them containing instructions of how to start your studies in the other institution. The studies offered by the other higher education institution are separated by a symbol on the different tabs of the PSP

Transferring credits

When the studies have been completed, the credits will be automatically transferred your student’s desktop and to your PSP without the eRPL procedure or sharing the link of the study path.

Later, other higher education institutions will also start to use Ripa in their CampusOnline studies and these instructions will be updated when more institutions start using Ripa. When registering for CampusOnline studies, always follow the enrollment instructions of each course.

The portal has basic information about the courses provided by other higher education institutions. In the course information, there is a link to the registration form and instructions how to enroll to the other higher education institution offering the course.

Before enrolling, check with your PSP coach that the course is suitable for the degree.

You can transfer your ECTS credits from other higher education institutions to Humak by searching the credits from My Studyinfo -service and filling in ERPL application in Peppi. Instructions for transferring credits and filling in ERPL application can be found here.
