Oulu UAS, campuses and maps

Oulu University of Applied Sciences

We at Oulu University of Applied Sciences (Oulu UAS) offer higher education in the fields of business, engineering, health and social care, information technology, media, performing arts, natural resources and vocational teacher education. We are doing our best to make your stay pleasant and rewarding both academically and personally. We are a high-quality educator, strong in teaching and professional expertise in all the educational fields offered, employing various teaching and learning methods. We are educating professionals for one of northern Europe’s most significant centres of competence – the Oulu region.

However, we are also taking into consideration wider national and international needs. We are living in a fast developing world where globalisation, demographical, economic and cultural change as well as environment and energy issues are challenging our societies, and thus even higher education. We follow the surrounding world very closely when providing and developing higher education and carrying out research and development. Oulu UAS is part of the Erasmus+ programme, see below. Our education is offered on the campuses as mentioned below.

Sustainable development, eco friendliness and recycling

Sustainable Development

Finland is the greenest country in the world according to the environmental performance index (EPI) 2016. It is followed by Iceland, Sweden, Denmark and Slovenia. According to a recent report from the World Health Organization, the air in Finland is the third cleanest in the world, and one of the very cleanest parts of the world can be found in Finnish Lapland. These achievements are based on the country’s societal and political commitment and high performance in protection of human health and of ecosystems.

Likewise, at Oulu UAS, staff and students acknowledge their ecological, economic and sociocultural responsibilities and act accordingly. We are committed to systematically enhance principles of sustainable development in all our actions. Our sustainable development actions follow the requirements of the ISO 14001 environmental standard, which is embedded in UAS’ education objectives, research, development and innovation activities.

Further information related to Oulu UAS sustainable development can be found in student intranet Oiva http://u.oamk.fi/environmentalissues (N.B.! Link works only when logged in to Oulu UAS network)

Eco friendliness

By embracing an eco-friendly way of life, every person is able to contribute in mitigating the climate change and improving the quality of life.

Your daily actions and choices can promote eco friendliness and encourage other people to take initiative and have great impact on the environment. Such eco-friendly activities may include bicycling, using public transportation, car sharing, recycling, reducing waste, limiting energy & water consumption, and using sustainable products and services.

 

Recycling

The following waste types are easy to recycle. All waste containers are mostly labelled in local language, so it is highly recommended to know each waste type in Finnish language for proper sorting. 

  • Bio waste (biojätteet): food, teabags…  
  • Paper (paperi): magazines, newspapers…
  • Paperboard Cartons (kartonki): milk packaging, egg-boxes…
  • Glass (lasit): bottles, jars…
  • Metals (metallit): metal objects, tins…

It should be noted that materials related to Oulu UAS' sustainable development policy as well as different recycling bins are located on campuses in each floor and corridor. Remember to go through them and act accordingly. There is also a recycling market in the student intranet Oiva, and student association are arranging flea markets etc. every once in a while on Oulu UAS' campuses. You can also launch environment initiatives in Oiva or together with the student union OSAKO, if wished so.

Enrolling to courses

As of the academic year 2017-2018, Oulu UAS is implementing a new system to make course enrolments. If you are a trainee and do not pursue any courses during your exchange, then you do not need to make course enrolments. Some exchange study programmes and departments may also implement its own way of course enrolments. Please consult our instructions for course enrolments, see also https://it.oamk.fi/8863?lang=en

In general, you will be able to enroll to all your courses according to your learning agreement (before the mobility) during our orientation days for exchange students. At first, you will attend a general session on IT matters and course enrolments during Oulu UAS' joint orientation day. Secondly, you will be guided in making course enrolments during the campus orientations days and study information sessions, or at other suitable times and locations, either by international administrative or academic coordinators.

You should then be able to make your course enrolments by accessing the Peppi student register (http://www.oamk.fi/peppi) with your student account credentials (username and password). Your username is a public identifier, which is shown at the email address before the @-character. Your e-mail address looks like this: uname@students.oamk.fi. Note that you should enrol to your courses according to the exchange study programme(s)/group IDs as well as the implementation code and name of the course that you are going to pursue based on your learning agreement (before the mobility).

Kindly note that the course codes from your MoveON application and learning agreement (before the mobility) may look a bit different than the ones when you are accessing the student register. For example, the Finnish Survival course code in your learning agreement (before the mobility) may only have a basic course code, in this case Y00022E Finnish Survival Course, 3 ECTS cr. This course will be offered each term, however, with a specific implementation code, usually four additional digits after the basic course code, e.g. Y00022E-3009 Finnish Survival Course, 3 ECTS cr. There are three implementations in autumn 2017: Y00022E-3009 (Group A), Y00022E-3010 (Group B) or Y00022E-3011 (Group C).

If you wish to make changes to your course enrolments (adding and deleting courses), then you must first agree and confirm the availability and suitability of the courses beforehand between all relevant parties by devising the learning agreement (during the mobility). It is normally only possible to make changes during the first weeks of the term and period!

For more information on changing your course enrolments (adding and deleting courses), please consult the section “Learning agreement”. You may find further information on course schedules and other timetables in the section "Study programmes, group IDs and schedules". You can obtain detailed course descriptions by searching for the courses with the basic or implementation course code in the section "Course search".

Learning agreement (before, during and after the mobility)

Learning agreements and framework of exchange

We at Oulu UAS shall devise a learning agreement with you and all other incoming exchange students and applicants regardless of the framework of exchange. A learning agreement is a contract between a student/trainee, your home university and Oulu UAS or a traineeship provider other than Oulu UAS. It ensures provision of education at Oulu UAS and accreditation of your exchange studies at your home university after your studies or traineeship at Oulu UAS.

  • Erasmus+ students and trainees:
    Please obtain the Erasmus+ learning agreement for studies or for traineeships on the template of your home university and upload it to your MoveON application duly signed by you and a representative of your home university.

  • Students and trainees of bilateral agreements and free movers:
    Please use Oulu UAS' template of the learning agreement for studies and upload it to your MoveON application duly signed by you and a representative of your home university. If you are coming for a traineeship at Oulu UAS, contact International Services (incoming.students@oamk.fi) respectively your international administrative coordinator at Oulu UAS for the correct course code.

 

Learning agreement (before the mobility)

Please make sure that your learning agreement (before the mobility) has been approved by all relevant parties before you come to pursue studies or a traineeship at Oulu UAS.

You must devise your learning agreement (before the mobility) and upload it signed by you and representative of your home university as a PDF file to MoveOn before submitting your application to Oulu UAS. If you cannot get the signature of your home university representative before Oulu UAS application deadline, please attach it without the signature to your MoveON application.

When you are devising the learning agreement (before the mobility), please note that it is possible to pursue courses only from one (!) of the offered exchange study programmes due to timetable constraints, unless mentioned otherwise; you must make your course choice in MoveOn and devise your learning agreement (before the mobility) accordingly, see http://u.oamk.fi/exchangestudies. Learning agreements with conflicting course choices cannot be considered and will be rejected on the part of courses which timetables will conflict.

If you are coming for a traineeship or work placement, please check thoroughly http://u.oamk.fi/exchangetraineeships and the section "Traineeships" on the website "Practical information" > "Studying at Oulu UAS".

Our international academic coordinators will review your MoveON application, course choice and learning agreement (before the mobility) and make admission decisions internally within 2-3 weeks after the application. Kindly note that some exchange study programmes (Oamk LABs, Demola, Media LABs) require also interviews - please register for these as mentioned at http://u.oamk.fi/exchangeapplication.

After our international academic coordinators have reviewed your applications and made internal admission decisions, our international administrative coordinators will sign your learning agreement (before the mobility) and e-mail it along with the externally relevant admission decision and a letter of acceptance. The whole admission process and e-mailing takes normally up to a month as of the application deadline - Third Country/Overseas/Non-EU/EEA/Swiss are prioritised over EU/EEA applicants for practical reasons.

In case you have questions, please contact Oulu UAS' International Services (incoming.students@oamk.fi) respectively your international administrative coordinator at Oulu UAS.

 

 

Learning agreement (during the mobility)

If need be, you may make changes to your course choice and course enrolments (add or delete courses) or traineeship and update your learning agreement (during the mobility) accordingly together with Oulu UAS' international academic coordinators in the first weeks of your exchange, or shortly before mid-term, if appropriate. Note, however, that courses might be already full due to regular enrolments.

If you wish to add or delete courses (or make changes to the traineeship) during your exchange, you have to agree beforehand about these with your international academic coordinator for studies or with your traineeship supervisor at Oulu UAS. Please confirm first with him/her before devising the learning agreement (during the mobility). In addition, consult your home university, whether the course changes or traineeship update is possible and can be accredited at your home university.

If you get the course or traineeship changes etc. okayed by all parties, please devise the learning agreement (during the mobility) by mentioning the added/deleted courses etc. in question. You only need to provide information about added/deleted courses in the learning agreement (during the mobility)! Then, kindly sign it on your part and obtain the signature of Oulu UAS' international academic coordinator. If you are pursuing a traineeship, then the traineeship supervisor will serve as the signatory. In addition, you must e-mail your learning agreement (during the mobility) or upload it to a mobility management system to your home university for approval, and e-mail a scan (pdf) to Oulu UAS' international administrative coordinator.

 

Learning agreement (after the mobility)

At the end of your studies or traineeship, please fill in the so-called departure form and e-mail it to your international administrative coordinator. In addition, please book a checkout meeting - invitations and booking instructions are usually e-mailed to you approx. a month before the end of your exchange at Oulu UAS. See also the section "Checkout meeting" on the website "Practical information".

At the checkout meeting with your international administrative coordinator, you will be able to get Oulu UAS' initial transcript of records, which gives also proof of the duration of your mobility at Oulu UAS. In case you need the Erasmus+ learning agreement (after the mobility) or other documents, such as a letter of confirmation for Erasmus+ etc. on the template of your home university, please indicate this to your international administrative coordinator before the checkout meeting. You will also receive a Letter of Confirmation on Oulu UAS' template.

Oulu UAS' initial transcript of records includes the course and project work assessment results according to Oulu UAS grading scale and ECTS conversion tables, and/or course progress information. If you are pursuing an Erasmus+ traineeship at Oulu UAS or a local company/organisation, you will usually also receive a traineeship certificate from your supervisor after completion of all traineeship tasks and once the assessment has been completed by the supervisor.

Kindly note that our teachers/supervisors have three (3) weeks (excluding holidays) for completing the assessment after the last course assignment has been handed in or after the last exam has been taken by the student/trainee. Our international administrative coordinators then have another five (5) weeks (excluding holidays) to issue the final transcript of records according to our Erasmus+ or bilateral exchange agreement, applying also to free mover exchanges.

Oulu UAS final transcript of records will be e-mailed to you and a representative of your home university, and it will be sent (1 original copy) along with Oulu UAS' letter of confirmation (1 original copy) by regular postal mail to the international office or another representative of your home university. Please mention the correct address in your departure form.

In case you have questions, please contact Oulu UAS' International Services (incoming.students@oamk.fi) respectively your international administrative coordinator at Oulu UAS.

 

 

Assessment regulations, ECTS credits and grading scale

Assessment regulations

 

ECTS Credits

ECTS credits are a value allocated to course units to describe the student workload required to complete them. They reflect the quantity of work each course requires in relation to the total quantity of work required to complete a full academic year, including lectures, practical training, seminars, private/independent work, examinations and other assessment activities wherever the actual work takes place; in the lecture theatre, class room, laboratory, library, placement or at home. ECTS credits are also allocated to thesis preparation.

In ECTS 60 credits represent on year of study in the terms of workload. Normally 30 credits are given for a semester and 20 credits for a trimester.

ECTS credits are allocated to courses and are awarded to students who successfully complete those courses.

The Finnish credit system has been updated to comply with the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) so that the Finnish credits are equivalent to the ECTS credits. The reform came into force on the 1st of January, 2005. Higher education studies are measured in credits (cr). Courses and study modules are credited according to the amount of work they require to attain the required objectives. A student's average study effort of 1,600 hours required for the completion of studies during one academic year corresponds to 60 credits.

ECTS Grading Scale

There are many different grading systems in Europe. The ECTS grading scale has been developed to help institutions to "translate" the grades awarded by the host institutions into their own grading scales. ECTS grade does not replace the local grade and higher education institutions make their own decisions on how to apply the ECTS grading scale to their own system.

This table shows how ECTS grades are applied to the grading system of Oulu University of Applied Sciences.

Oulu UAS grade ECTS grade
5 excellent A
4 very good B
3 good C
2 satisfactory D
1 sufficient E
0 fail F or FX

Some study attainments can also be assessed on the grading scale pass/fail.

Student restaurants and meal subsidy

Student restaurants

There are various student restaurants on Oulu UAS' campuses. For lunch serving times and opening hours, please see the restaurants’ info signs and check the websites. There is usually a choice of vegetarian meals, different salads as well as meals including meat and side dishes. Bread and water/milk/juice is included in the meal price. Coffee/tea has to be purchased separately.

The Game campus has student restaurants close by – more information is available from Oulu Game LAB staff at the commencement of studies.

 

Meal subsidy

Students are entitled to a meal subsidy. The meal price will be reduced by the amount of the meal subsidy. The meal subsidy for university students is approximately €1.84 per meal, which makes the lunch price approximately €1–5, depending on the choice.

Meal subsidy cards will be given to enrolled exchange students during the orientation days. Meal subsidy cards can also be picked up from International Services or Student Services offices during the exchange. If you are a member of the student union OSAKO and have a valid student membership card, you do not need a separate meal subsidy card in order to be entitled to the student-priced meals.

IT Services (user accounts, e-mail, cloud services, Moodle, computers and rooms, printing)

IT Services

For detailed information on IT matters, please first consult the website of the IT services at http://it.oamk.fi.

In case of problems or further questions, you may also contact the IT Services via phone +358 20 611 0205 or e-mail, helpdesk@oamk.fi.

IT Services maintains info desks on the Kontinkangas, Kotkantie, and Teuvo Pakkalan katu campus.

 

User accounts, usernames and passwords

You will get an e-mail student account username and password that are used for most of the services that require logging in (e.g. 365.oamk.fi, OneDrive repository, students’ intranet Oiva, Moodle virtual learning environment, SafeQ printing, and Windows/Apple computers on the campus premises). Note that your student account is personal and you should never let others use your accounts or credentials.

Your username will be valid as long as you are enrolled as an exchange student of Oulu UAS, until you finish your studies. You should make your own backups of your OneDrive folders and fiels if you want to have these after you have completed your studies. Your account will be removed without a separate announcement when you have finished your studies.

In addition, you will receive an Oulu UAS student number and student user account as well as credentials to get access to Oulu UAS' student register. You will need these credentials, e.g. for enrolling to courses, updating your contact information, checking your study results etc.

If you use your accounts for inappropriate purposes, or if you give your username and password to another person, you will lose your account. Inappropriate use includes (but is not limited to) break-in attempts, collecting usernames, breaking into computers, breaking of passwords, excessive loading of files from the Internet, software piracy and storing or spreading irrelevant and explicit materials. Use your common sense! The student account is not a right but a privilege. 

 

E-mail

You will receive an e-mail account for 365.oamk.fi during the orientation days or checkin meeting (late arrivals). Kindly note that the e-mail address (username[at]students.oamk.fi) is the channel through which you will get all the study-related information sent by academic staff of our university. Therefore it is important that you check your e-mails regularly. You can also forward your e-mail to another account that you are using, if wished so. International Services' administrative staff will mostly use your e-mail that you have provided with your application.

 

Cloud services and Moodle

You will be offered various cloud services (e.g. OneDrive) based on your 365.oamk.fi student account. You may use OneDrive and MS apps for storing, sharing and collaborating on your study work. Please make yourself familiar with cloud services and use these for learning purposes.

Oulu UAS uses Moodle virtual learning environment in courses and other  study-related work. For more information, turn to your teacher/supervisor. For troubleshooting, check the instructions and contact moodle-helpdesk@oamk.fi.

 

Computers and EDP rooms

If you need to use computers outside lessons, you may use the computers and printers in the libraries and in the learning centres or EDP (electronic data processing) rooms on our campuses. In addition you may also use the free wireless Internet connection (Wi-Fi) called panOULU that is available in the campus areas. There are no computers available for borrowing or renting, unfortunately. Some computer or EDP rooms are used for teaching purposes only.

In order to stay and work late on Oulu UAS' campuses, you need to have a key and a badge. The key, badge and instructions for using it can be received from the janitors. The janitors’ office is located in the main lobby of Oulu UAS' campuses. You need to have your ID with you when applying for the key and badge, and you also need to first obtain an approval and statement of a possible international academic coordinator/project work/art work/production supervisor.

The Department of Media and Performing Arts offers also special facilities (cross media studio, TV studio, concert/ dance hall, music rooms etc.) which may require special permission. In case of questions, please turn to your international academic coordinator and/or teachers and staff.

You should not install anything permanently on the hard disks of the computers in the computer classes and learning centres. The changing and removal of the system files and of the installed programmes is forbidden. Also, please remember that if you save your files to a computer in common use, your work may get to the hands of everyone using the computer after you. You can of course use the hard disk for temporary saving, but it is advisable to remove your own files after you leave the computer. You can save your own work in your private directory, which you can map to a drive on the Windows/Apple computer you are using. Remember to log out from the computer after you have finished your work. If you carry a USB memory stick, we advise you to write your name and contact details on it, so that it can be returned to you more easily in case it gets lost.

 

Printing, copying, scanning, faxing

Oulu UAS is using a secure printing system termed SafeQ. A secure printing system means that you can print your files via your home computer or a mobile device (via VPN) or campus computer (connected to the LAN) at a printer on campus. In order to retrieve your prints, you have to log in to the printer using your Oulu UAS account and its password. Printer locations are listed below.

Oulu UAS provides each student a printing balance of 15.75 euro twice a year. The sum will be added to your printing balance on the first of January and August (at the beginning of each semester). The printing balance is cumulative; it means that if you do not use all of it during the semester, you can use it later. If you need more prints than the balance allows, you can buy more from the student associations on campuses.

Each print type has its own price (e.g. black/colour, A4/A3, single or double sided prints). The pricing is available from the IT Services website. Scanning a document and sending it to your e-mail is free of charge.

Secure printing includes paper. Using your own paper is not allowed. The janitors take care of adding paper to the printers. The printers are located in several rooms and places on Oulu UAS' campuses.

SafeQ printers can also be used for copying and scanning documents. In addition, there is a copying machine for students  in front of the Student Association OTE ry shop on Kotkantie campus. 

If you need to fax something important, you can ask for help from the janitors at the info desk in the main lobby of the campuses. Usually Oulu UAS doesn’t employ faxing anymore and advises students to use e-mail and scanners. 

Library Services

Oulu UAS hosts a main library and info desks on its campuses (except the Game campus) with a reference collection offering literature and online resources in all relevant educational fields.

The main contingent of books, journals etc. is available at the main library of Oulu UAS, which is located on the Kontinkangas campus. The library card can be applied for and received at the info desk on each campus or at the main library directly.

For detailed information on library and related services, please visit http://www.oamk.fi/library, and contact the service personnel, if you have further questions.

Sports Services

Joint Sport Services of Oulu’s Higher Education Institutions (Oulu University of Applied Sciences and The University of Oulu) offer various excellent sport, welfare and free time activities. You can gain access to the activities by purchasing a Sports Pass. The entire offering and instructions for the Sports Pass are available at http://www.unisportoulu.fi

International Tutoring

tutoring_new.png

In order to help you preparing your trip and making your arrival and exchange stay pleasant and rewarding, our student union OSAKO and Oulu UAS’ International Services are organising international peer tutoring for you throughout your exchange at our university. We will assign a peer tutor to you shortly before the commencement of each term with whom you may carry out different student-led activities before and during your exchange at Oulu UAS, see in short http://u.oamk.fi/internationaltutoringactivities. For information on the arrival services and your peer tutor and your role as a tutee, please refer to the section "Preparing your exchange and arriving to Oulu" on the "Arrival services" page.

Your peer tutor is a degree student of Oulu UAS who will contact you before the exchange and stay in touch with you during the exchange, serving as a guide to the local student life in Oulu. He/She will be ready to welcome you at the Välkkylä dormitory (or other place if you haven't been able to get accommodation from PSOAS) during the official arrival days and times, for autumn 2017 on 21-23 August between 7 am and 22 pm, and for spring 2018 on 2-3 January between 7 am and 22 pm.

Please note that sometimes our peer tutors return late for the beginning of the academic term, and thus we cannot necessarily guarantee the arrival service for you in all cases. In any case, we shall make every effort to help you with the check in to the Välkkylä dormitory upon your arrival during the official arrival days and times.

Please note that our arrival service by means of our peer tutors depends also on the means of transportation available to you. When making travel preparations, kindly take into consideration that we/your peer tutor ask you to take the bus or a taxi to the welcome place (as of 2017-2018 the office of the student union OSAKO, close to the Välkkylä dormitory).

The key to your room at the Välkkylä dormitory will be available at OSAKO's office during the official arriving days and times, and if you have been offered and accepted PSOAS tenancy. Your peer tutor or a group of peer tutors should then be there at the location in OSAKO's office with your key to welcome you and help finding your room.

Please note that the arrival service applies only to your arrival to Oulu (not to the departure from Oulu), and that you have to cover your own travelling expenses in all cases. If you choose to come at a time other than the official arrival days and times, you are advised to be ready to possibly stay at a hotel/hostel for the first night, and then transfer and check in to Välkkylä or your place of accommodtion on the next day. Your peer tutor will help you and he/she may also make other arrangements with you. See also http://u.oamk.fi/accommodation.

You will receive the contact information (e-mail and mobile phone number) of your peer tutor in a separate assignment message from International Services at the latest in the middle of August for autumn, and in the middle of December for spring. Once you have received the assignment message, immediately contact your peer tutor by e-mail and phone, and provide him/her with your mobile phone number and other relevant contact information.

We’re using a facebook group for all exchange students and peer tutors of Oulu UAS – feel free to join it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/oulu.uas.exchange.students.autumn.2017. In case of changes in your travel arrangements, swiftly inform your peer tutor and incoming.students@oamk.fi about it by phone and e-mail.

Special needs and accessibility

If you have a special need of any kind, please mention this already in your exchange application to Oulu UAS. In addition, please contact the international academic coordinator of your exchange study programme, and agree on possible support measures and for the details of services available.

All the premises of Oulu UAS are accessible with a wheelchair and special toilets are available for disabled persons. Special arrangements for exams have to be agreed separately with the staff, either with the international academic coordinator of your exchange study programme or directly with a teacher/supervisor of a traineeship/project work. There are also computer services for disabled persons.

Checkup meeting (optional)

If you have questions or comments on your experience during your exchange stay, please do not hesitate to approach your peer tutor student(s) or international academic coordinator/tutor teacher at any time convenient for all persons.

Feel free to also come for a checkup meeting to our International Services and meet your international administrative coordinator in order to exchange news and views on your exchange experience at Oulu UAS.

We are committed to help making your exchange stay pleasant and rewarding in all possible respects, see also http://u.oamk.fi/learningexperience.
