Graduation and after the Master's Degree


The Master’s Degree is awarded to students who have completed the studies (courses and a development assignment in working life constituting the thesis) of their degree programme in compliance with their personal learning plan during the maximum study period.

Degree Certificate

On completing the Master’s Degree, students are awarded a certificate in Finnish, indicating

  • the name of the degree and degree programme,
  • a potential specialization option,
  • the title which can be used based on the degree,
  • the central content of studies, and
  • the name of the thesis.

Apply for the degree certificate online (see Forms) early enough before the maximum study period expires.

Students who graduate from degree programmes with instruction in Finnish will receive a Finnish-language degree certificate, but they may also order the certificate in English for 50 euros. The English-language certificate may only be ordered now, any orders placed afterwards will not be taken into consideration. The 50€ processing fee is to be paid into JAMK’s bank account:

  • IBAN: FI38 5290 0220 4210 34 BIC: OKOYFIHH, reference number 1122
  • Submit the receipt to studentservices(at)jamk.fi
  • The request will not be processed if the receipt of payment is missing.

Students who graduate from degree programmes with instruction in English will always receive their degree certificate in English free of charge.

International double degree students after graduation obtain a degree certificate from both institutions. Further information on Elmo Student (login required).

Also before graduation, students can contact the Student Services in order to get a certificate on the studies they have completed so far.
