Tampere University Student's Handbook
Personal study module
Your study plan can include custom modules that you have completed outside Tampere University or that are so-called personal study modules.
- A study module completed outside Tampere University is a module that you have completed at another institution.
- A personal study module is a module that is not included in the normal curriculum of your degree programme. The module “TAU.HLO Personal study module” is added to your study plan when a module you have completed is not included in the curriculum of your programme. A personal study module can fall into the category of basic studies, intermediate studies or advanced studies and must always be separately approved.
In your degree certificate the name of the module will be Personal study module, but your transcript of records can include a more specific name that describes its content.
