After graduation:

1. Opex membership for a total of 7 years, you can still enjoy Opex benefits even after graduation.

2. Completion of the degree

A student who has completed a master's degree or a bachelor's degree at the University of Turku, who has not been entitled to a master's degree, has the right to complete his / her studies free of charge for the academic year and the two academic years following the degree by registering as a postgraduate student. These studies are called postgraduate studies and are free of charge and are not included in a degree already completed.

As a general rule, studies that are offered as separate studies (excluding teacher pedagogical or special teacher studies) can be completed as in-service studies. You should always check the possibilities for completing in-service studies in the instructions of each faculty!

A postgraduate student does not have the status of a degree student and therefore cannot receive student benefits.
