Guidance and support

Personal Study Plan

A personal study plan will help you and your teacher tutor keep track of the progress and direction of your studies. The objective is compiling a degree that meets your personal goals and preferences.

All the students majoring in English Philology produce their personal study plans at the beginning of their studies. The plans are updated and discussed with teacher tutors in the course of the studies.

Checkpoints for Personal Study Plans (PSP=HOPS, Henkilökohtainen opintosuunnitelma)
  1. At the beginning of the studies
  2. At the beginning of the Bachelor's Seminar and Thesis course
  3. At the beginning of the Master's studies

Use WebOodi for compiling your "OodiHops" (OodiPSP Guide in English and in Finnish)
