A checklist of things to do and consider before and after you graduate.
Both bachelor’s and master’s degrees include a thesis project, which comprises 6-10 credits for the bachelor’s degree and 20-40 credits for the master’s degree. A thesis project often includes both an artistic and a written component. An entirely artistic (SibA) or written thesis project is also possible.
The Turnitin plagiarism detection system used through Moodle checks the originality of the written components of your doctoral or master’s thesis project. You can also use the system to check the originality of other texts.
You can download the thesis project plan for a Master of Arts (Theatre and Drama / Dance / Art and Design) degree on this page. Submit the plan to the designated planning officer of your degree programme.
All Uniarts Helsinki students can include studies in career skills in their degree. These studies give students tools that are needed in working professionally in the arts sector, pursuing a career as an entrepreneur and reflecting on one’s own path as an artist.
After graduation, you may apply for a residence permit to look for work or start a business. You may get the permit for two years at the most and you must apply for it within five years from graduation. You may also take the permit in parts.
