Course Correspondences

Old and New Curriculum: What are the correspondences between old and new language technology courses?

The University of Helsinki is replacing the old curriculum with a new one in the fall of 2017. The new curriculum is part of the so-called Big Wheel reorganization (“Iso pyörä” in Finnish).

If you are a bachelor student and have started your studies before 2017 you have the right (until 31 July 2020) to complete your bachelor and master’s exam according to the old curriculum.

If you are a master’s student and have started your studies before 2017 you have the right (until 31 July 2020) to complete your master’s degree according to the old curriculum.

Bachelor and master’s students in the old curriculum also have the right to switch to the new curriculum, either for the master’s degree only or for both the bachelor and master’s degree. You will have to switch to the new curriculum, if you do not graduate before the deadline (31 July 2020).

We have collected two tables (in Finnish) that list the course correspondences in the two different scenarios:

  1. If you wish to continue in the old curriculum, choose your remaining courses according to the guidelines of this document.
  2. If you wish to switch to the new curriculum, choose your remaining courses according to the guidelines of this document.

Disclaimer: We hope that all information given in the tables is correct. It is hard to find definite answers to all questions at this point (24 August 2017).

Disclaimer 2: Our course list is complete only as far as language technology is concerned, but there are other relevant courses as well, for instance in general linguistics and phonetics.
